so, ok total slacker with the photo a day - perhaps, IF I had a camera phone I'd do better but I'm old school with the phone - and I love photo editing =) BTW I am lovin' picmonkey!

I made this bracelet a few years ago in San Diego on one of my trips Pacific Beach - my home away from home - oh how I miss you Pacific Beach - I LOVE you SO much!!! =)
earlier in the week I made these Strawberry Shortcake Cupcakes - used boxed White Cake mix made it as directed and then added the juice of half a lime (oh, yes, I got a HUGE bag of lime for $1 and have been adding lime to everything!) then filled the muffin cups and added a few sliced fresh strawberries & baked as directed on the box (maybe a minute or 2 longer) ... they were VERY good plain or with a bit of whipped cream =D
Anyway, I had a pretty good birthday - the HB accompanied me to the local conservation groups annual native plant sale - I was kinda bummed, I missed the presale & they sold out of the 2 things I wanted most, but got about a dozen plants 1/2 for my shade garden and 1/2 for my prairie patch (pictures shall be forth comming) =) OMG and they had a great selection of rain garden plants!!! I have got to get the HB working on that - next year for sure! they went out for a BFB (Big Effin Breakfast) and spent the rest of the day playing in the yard... picking myself some Lilly of the Valley flowers...
(mmmm.. smells SO sweet =))

pulling weeds, staking the peonies and tending the veggie garden... and strawberry patch =) cooked up some Baked Ziti which is a lot like lasagna but instead of all the messing with layers you used penne pasta mixed everything together top with more cheese and bake =) while I was making it I saw an new birdie visitor at the feeder... so I snapped a photo of him - went right to my Audubon North American Bird Field Guide - He is a Rose-breasted Grosbeak and and well well, today's photo a day theme is bird!? 2 out of 5 ain't bad =)
