Today was celebration time. Elaine turns 91 on the 17th so ofcourse this called for a major celebration. Not only was it birthday time, but Elaine's sister, Joy was in town to join in on the celebration. Wouldn't you love to have a name like Joy? Remember our discussion the other day about liking/not liking our given name...well, I just decided I think I am changing my name to Joy. Soo much better than Deanna. Not only is it easy to pronounce, but no one will ever misspell it either. Ok, that's it...my new name is Joy, but I will probably still answer to Deanna.
Look at this line-up of beautiful women. They all are a special part of me. I just hope & pray that I am still kicking strong at 91 like our lovely Elaine.
It would have been wonderful to sit and dine on this lovely patio, but it was beastly hot with humidity levels way up there, making it difficult to not sweat....and you know I don't like to sweat. Inside, with air-conditioning was the choice of dining spots.
The grounds surrounding the restaurant are planted with beautiful flowers....a wonderful spot for wedding receptions.
Today is Tuesday Muse over at my friend Nancy's blog, A Rural Journal....and prior to finishing this post, I hopped over to her blog and was blown away. Nancy creates textures, lovely ones that I use consistently, that she graciously & generously shares (FREE) to all of us. Today's texture is named after me.....Deanna, oh so totally surprised and honored. It feels like I just won the Academy Award or something spectacular. Now I will have to reconsider renaming myself Joy...(giggle). But I still like that name....maybe a middle name, Deanna Joy...OK that's it. Thank you, Nancy, from the bottom of my heart. And (drum roll) is an image with "Deanna" texture.....
I hope your day is as pleasant as mine. Mine will be spent reading the book for book club...."The Light Between Oceans"....wonderful, loving it.
Until next time.....
