Even if your family members make fun of you for being so excited about it.
To catch up with the regular doings, this is the package that came from Dustpan Alley. Angelina has a blog and that's how I came across Dustpan Alley. I ordered the little polka dot bag from her online shop and got a wonderful little package of goodies from her. The darling hand made card has a picture of her mother on it. Check out her shop, she's got a lot of fun things in it! Another blog that I read is Laurie's Old School Acres. This nice little package also showed up when I was on my excursion. Laurie sent it a long to me as a thanks for commenting on her blog.
Here's Frankie with her blingy Texas Handbag. I love it.
This is how my beautiful sunflower looked when I came home from Texas.
This was the next morning.
The squirrels broke it off and tried to take it up the palm tree. Having no luck with that, they just sat and ate it on the fence and left the chewed up remains so I'd know what happened to it. Good thing I like them.

Yesterday for Bret's birthday we went into Pacific Grove for the day. We love it there. We have lunch at Toasties and then go to the cemetery to see the deer, and this time we headed to the Monarch Butterfly Preserve to see the migrating Monarchs. Pacific Grove is famous for this. It is amazing. My photos don't do it justice at all. In the first picture you get a hint of color, the butterflies are there by the hundreds, hanging off the eucalyptus trees. In the second picture, you see a lot of what looks like brown leaves, all butterflies my friends. Amazing. I recommend this little trip a lot.
