Full of Complex Carbohydrates and MicroNutrients

I am a novelty to many (and I'm fine with that).
I have a very silly sense of humor usually riddled with malapropisms (and I'm fine with that, too).
I ask too many questions of Life and I expect all the answers.
I trust people too easily when I shouldn't; however, I respect everyone regardless…unless they do something to make me think twice.
I don't cheat. I am tactful yet will give the truth up front (and never mean to hurt anyone's feelings with it).
I like to help the people who have helped me, and even those who have not.
I never forget... but sometimes I misplace things.
I never lose hope.
I am awesomely blessed for the people who have come into my life, and I am blessed for the people who have left because I realize I didn't need them anyway.
I honestly feel that laughter is the best medicine you can have.
I believe in being strong when everything else seems to be going wrong.
I believe that tomorrow is another day and I believe in miracles. In other words, I'm human, and definitely not perfect.
But tomorrow is another day, and there's so much cheese to be had...

Happy Birthday, Everett

Everett and our kitty, Grizzleberry. This is one of my all-time favorite photos of them together. She loved to go for shoulder rides and would perch there for hours if you let her. Grizz was a very special cat. I know that she and Evvy are hangin' out together right now - wherever they are.

You would have been 40 years old yesterday (December 10, 2009). You're gone almost seven whole years now, and I'm still having an odd time trying to get my head around that fact.

I took the photo below from outside on our back patio, looking up over the house and tree line into the wild blue yonder. It's freezing cold out there right now - about 30 degrees - but it's amazingly crisp and clear, and absolutely beautiful.

Days like this remind me of you.
