As if...

Life just couldn't get any sweeter right now.

Next Tuesday is my birthday. So as an early birthday present to me, this Tuesday I get a president that makes me feel like the world might not be going to hell in a handbasket and I'm thrilled in a way I've never been in my entire life, and then...

My sister goes and HAS A BABY today!

Little Curly Girl has a brand new sister who apparently has a flawless complexion and lots of dark curly hair... and I have someone new to play with.

My goodness, I think my head is going to fall off.

Christina November 6, 2008 at 10:31 AM  

Aww... will you gently kiss her on the top of all that dark curly hair for me? Then tell your sister, what a great job she had done. ; )

Congratulations on having a birthday and a new member to your extended family. SO - you're a Scorpio? You didn't know that I am also an Astrologer and as part of my gift to you as a member of your new administration, I will do your horoscope. But you've got to give me the REAL data - no Scorpio secrets from your personal artist/astrologer/ tarot reader/ fellow walker and photographer friend.

And on top of everything else, you're a Scorpio! I should have known all along. Your passion, your giving (and taking) and the mistery behind the two photos in your profile (the close-up of the eye and the one with the feather fan). Yes, welcome to the club! Well, I assume that I am the older one here, after your Tuesday's festivities it will be my birthday on the Sunday after (16th Nov), thirty-seven autumns.

Scorpios rock!

Greetings from London.

Carol November 7, 2008 at 4:16 AM  

Oh big Happy Birthday for you... and congratulations to your sister for the birth of her little one :-)

Vanessa November 7, 2008 at 5:47 AM  

When it rains...:-)

Congratulations for the new cuteness in your life.

tangobaby November 7, 2008 at 10:15 AM  

Hi everyone!

Thank you for the extra dose of happy! Mama and baby and big sister are doing great. I am literally waiting by the phone for the green light so I can get my ticket to ride!

I can't WAIT to see them all.

And as for the birthday wishes, I take each one from you and keep it close to my heart. Thank you!


Yoli November 8, 2008 at 1:47 PM  

Aaaawww how sweet, another little Scorpio! Congratulations! So next Tuesday is your birthday? I wish you the happiest of days.

tangobaby November 10, 2008 at 2:39 PM  

Thank you, Yoli! I can't wait to visit my little Scorpio baby friend.
