Today is my Birthday

How am I celebrating it. 
First thing, I was up before the crack of dawn to drive Rene' to the airport. 
I am off in a few minutes to early vote and drop two quilts at the UPS store for shipment to the Macuso show since the need to be there next week and I want to get them out of my way since I am moving!!!
Yes, moving.
I'm moving from apartment 226 to apartment 434.  I will still overlooking or will be looking down into the garden instead of being able to walk directly out my doors into it.
But why?
There is a good reason for this move I assure you.  I hate, hate, hate millipedes.  And despite management being really diligent in their efforts to prevent them from finding their way into my apartment they still do and creepy crawly things creep me out.
I am moving up and out of their path. 
The best part is I  will gain a balcony space that will become an outdoor studio space as well as a place for me to sit, have my morning coffee and journal.
I think if you one is  moving the move with the least effort is one where you are moving into an identical space and there is no thought about where to  place something. 
So I am emptying a cabinet in one place and replacing everything in the identical space in the other unit.
After a year of living in my space I now know what works for me and I see no reason to change anything.
I'll just have a different viewpoint of the physical world in which I live.
I am plannng to have a great day.  i hope the same for you.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY FRIEND!! I'm certainly glad you were born. You're an asset to all who meet you, especially me. Even though we have not physically met, I feel a kindred spirit with you. Have a blessed birthday.
Love, Carol

Happy birthday, Juanita!
Enjoy your new space. Even though it's the same floor plan it'll feel so different with the balcony. Sounds fun.

What a great birthday present to yourself! New space and an outdoor studio, minus the critters. Well, we all know that Fla is "palmetto bug" (and other crawlies) land; comes with the territory. That's why my parents didn't buy on the first floor after renting. They bought the identical ap't on the second floor and no problems after that.

As to the artistic talent (or lack thereof, according to those rude adults in our lives) - it is sad how much damage people can do with their ignorance and lack of manners.
Took me a lifetime to discover otherwise - and anybody who told you you had no talent is just plain crazy! You are a true artist.

Happy, happy birthday. Your birthday is just one day away from mine. Congradulations on the move up - I am hoping we will get a picture of your view looking down on the garden.

Have you ever thought about adding a little bit more than just your articles?

I mean, what you say is important and all. Nevertheless just imagine if you added some great
images or video clips to give your posts more, "pop"! Your content is excellent
but with pics and video clips, this site could certainly be one of the best in its field.
Very good blog!
