Shimmer in the sky

This was the mornng sky, sunrise at 6.30am



And this was the same sky 15 minutes later.





And here are BFJ's (Best Friend J) two gorgeous Granddaughters, with a Giant Teddy, outside a Thames shop. Arent they lovely girls, & what a nice big Teddy.



And here are the girls again, in the Redwood Forest, in Rotorua. It makes me homesick to see those lovely fern trees, & the gorgeous green of it all.





Friends coming over today for a bit of a get together for my 64th Birthday! Eeek!
Always think of Paul McCartney's song, 'When I'm 64'. "Will you still need me, will you still feed me, when I'm 64. Will you still be sending me a Valentine, Birthday greetings, bottle of wine"

There was no Valentine, but we never did observe that day. And my official birthday is not until tomorrow, so no gifties today! That is, if there will be any, haha.

It is SB's birthday next on 27th, & we usually have a get together for both of us, but he wont be up till next weekend. I always look forward to seeing him, as mothers do.

It is a nice day herer, so hope it doesnt get toooo hot!

Happy Birthday. You are a couple of months ahead of me on that big 64. The green looks very good to me too. It is snowing here again. Big lovely floating flakes but we like them better in Dec than in Feb.

Have a great birthday tomorrow Meggie. We'll definitely "...still need you..." and read you when you're 64!

That picture of the Redwood Forest reminds of scenes from the movie The Piano. I loved the visuals in that movie - I haven't seen it for a while but this reminder makes me want to see it again soon.

Happy Birthday, Meggie and many, many more. I hope you enjoy your day and have a glass of wine for me!

Happy birthday from me too. Hope you have a lovely day. It seems no time since that song was in the hit parade and one thought one would never be that old... Not that I personally am, yet, but time flies... But clearly he does still need you, so this is good!

Happy birthday!

Is that Thames, as in NZ?? I went there on a Rotary Student Exchange in 1988 :) It was so much fun. I adore NZ.

Thankyou so much for all your kind wishes & thoughts, for my birthday.
Black Forest Cake is the sinful treat!

And music, complete with a little stereo to play it, & enjoy it!

Yes the Forest pic is in Rotorua, & Thames is also in NZ.

And I have been enjoying my day- keeping cool!
