Lots of Libras in our family.....2 aunts, my mother, my grandmother....a wonderful time of year for a birthday. Mom (below) had her birthday last Saturday. My aunt Ruby (above), myself and friend Cheryl (from high school years!)'s mother are celebrating today.

Nothing too wild here. We closed on the sale of Mom's house yesterday. Then today took her for a visit with her doctor. We decided to try physical therapy to strengthen her legs and improve balance. At the moment she is reading on the back porch where I have been playing with my watercolors [though I am supposed to be getting the garage sale organized for tomorrow! Yikes!]

I'm painting birds and pomegranates....

AND just opened this delicate garnet necklace which is rather like a pomegranate seed....reminiscent of Persephone....I do love it!

Truly, a very wonderful, though quiet, birthday!

Happy Birthday, Lila!! Sometimes the quiet days are the best. Whatever you do, just enjoy it.

PS - the necklace is beautiful.

Lila, I'm so sorry I didn't recognize your birthday yesterday. I tried! I had found a wonderful e-card on, and personalized with a nice little letter (they have room for that) and went to send it and they required a credit card sign up (and I don't have one). Yeah, they are no longer free. I tried to use my debit card but they wouldn't take it. I was so POd! It was such a nice artistic card. So I went away from the computer and then didn't get back the rest of the evening. I hope you had a fabulous day, dear friend.
