“The chief beauty about time is that you cannot waste it in advance.
The next year, the next day, the next hour are lying ready for you, as perfect, as unspoiled, as if you had never wasted or misapplied a single moment in all your life. You can turn over a new leaf every hour if you choose.”
-Arnold Bennett

You are so right, husbands can drive us crazy. I ought to name this place the funny farm so I can tell him to drive me to the funny farm. Do you think he'd get it? or Zoom, right over his head? Love your page!!!

Good morning Linda..... might I suggest joining the Birding Across America Team... it is growing and fun! We can help you learn about birds and how they can fill your life with so much joy! That must be so exciting to see a hawk often in your yard! Thanks for the friend add!

emoticon so much Linda for your kind encouragements on my blog! The problem when I travel for work is that we usually have lunch or dinner at the restaurant and I now eat so much more slowly than the others. But I am sure I'll be fine. I'll be travelling with a colleague who knows about my surgery so that will help too.
Hang in there, it sounds like it is dreadfully cold where you live at the moment, it never gets that cold here and I don't know how I would cope! emoticon
