Happy New Year: 2017


fairaThe year is ending soon. It seems each new year goes faster than the year before.

Last year at this time instead of making resolutions I decided to go a different route. I started collected a journal of good joys. Instead of making a list on how to change or do better I decided to focus on the good that came my way. Everyday I wrote something that was awesome whether it was big or small. Going over it showed me how truly blessed and fortunate I am. I didn’t think I would follow through the whole year but happily I did. It was a change of pace and I am glad I did it. I am not sure if I will do it again in January, still pondering over that. But to see 365, or 366 not sure of the total count for 2016, entries of goodness makes one feel really good inside.

Still I want to wish everyone a great 2017. May it be full of good health, happiness and good times with loved ones whether that be family, friends or both.

I offer good cheer and well wishes from my home to yours. May 2017 be better than 2016.

Happy New Year!

Happy anniversary, baby: Got you on my mind



Today is my 27th wedding anniversary. Wow. When I say it out loud it blows my mind. He is a pretty cool dude who I am still learning about.I met my husband the second semester of my Freshman year in college in Psychology class of all places. He is amazing in a lot of ways and I am blessed and grateful for all he is. It has been a journey. Going to enjoy tomorrow.

Photo op: My tiel Angel

I have been remiss in posting pictures, just pictures, when I blog here. So getting back on the horse so to speak.

Most people who know me know that I rescue and adopt birdies. I been doing this since 1998 when I rescued my first two tiels who were a bonded pair.

This is my Angel. We rescued him in 1999 at four months. He is a feisty one who will hiss at me unless someone is near me then he will defend me at all cost. He didn’t want to take a picture when I took this as you can see by his close eyes. However he was okay with a side profile.
