Gavin makes me feel like that guy in the Simon and Garfunkel song Cecilia   

...I got up to wash my face,
when I come back to bed,
someone's taking my place...

Whenever I leave Gavin moves over and makes himself comfortable on my side of the bed, right in my spot.  I think he's trying to replace me.

My Heart Tree

It rained, and rained, all of March and April around here. (that's what it felt like to me, the person who grew up in a desert and lives in California)  It rained so much that you could literally see the plants growing.  I do not enjoy the rain, but it has left everything impossibly lush and green and spring couldn't be lovelier.  My favorite spring sight is the tree in my backyard that for a few weeks every year is covered in red hearts.

Happiness Is...

"There is a direct correlation between the level of happiness in one's life and the the level of silliness they allow into it. "

Darci and Taylor

I always love when my guest room gets put to use, houseguests are always welcome around here.  Darci and Taylor spent the weekend with us and what lovely houseguests they were.  They are interesting and fun, very good company, and up for anything.  We had lots of San Francisco adventures that I'm sure we'll be talking about for years to come, it was good times.  Something I kept thinking was that I have known Darci all her life, (literally, from the moment she was born) and it is amazing to see the child that I adored grown up into an adult that I like. Darci and Taylor are awesome, they are welcome to our guestroom anytime.
