The fairy tree

Delight is a heart of pearl-white beads, a pink ribbon and satin flowers. My students gave me this token on the occasion of the Queen's birthday a couple weeks ago.

Fun is buying yourself something nice though you know you won't wear it everyday. This watch will be on my wrist as I host lunch for cousins and their kids come Saturday.

Joy is finding something very charming in the midst of modern technology. I call this the Fairy Tree. It sprung out in the middle of the former World Trade mall; appeals highly to the country girl in me. 

Yum is a succession of crepe cheese cake, coconut ice cream, Auntie Annie pretzels with sour cream sauce and grape-blueberry juice, tiny butter and banana cupcakes, chicken salad and Pepper Lunch beef steak to fuel a series of film screenings.

Anticipation is excitement over getting things ready for a little family gathering on Saturday and celebrations which are going to be spread through normal professional duties. 

Friday, August 30th is my birthday.  I am thankful that I have reached another year intact despite troubles in the past. The scars are manageable; lessons enough to keep me growing. Life has been very good.

Friday's Fave Five * Picture Clusters * Share the Joy

  4. Happy Birthday! I hope you have a wonderful day.

    The fairy tree looks so pretty. I love to see nature springing up in likely places.

    Your gathering sounds fun.

    I love the way you presented your fave faves this week.
