All sorts of delightful pampering took place here yesterday.


~Special meals were prepared


~cards and a mural by Iain and Elijah


It’s all of us in the orchard that they claim I’m always talking about wanting.


…and some close-ups…



~Cinnamon rolls, like I’ve been craving for oh, 4 years or so (since going gluten-free).


I have to say, 29 is off to a pretty good start!


Oh, and I have to add a #30 to my list yesterday.  It’s one that I thought of right away while contemplating this list, but somehow missed in the typing.

30. Appreciate the good in people and try not to dwell on the flaws (this goes for me too!)

Thirty before thirty kind of makes sense anyway, doesn’t it?  So there we have it, a complete manifesto for the coming year, which I have every intention of thoroughly enjoying.

    shauna- we loved them! In fact, it looks like they are going to replace our traditional Valentine’s Day french toast.
