Happy Birthday mom.

Somewhat melancholy but it was ok. 

This morning we went to the beach for regular Saturday morning beach volleyball.  We haven't been for awhile. I walked w/ the babe and enjoyed the gorgeous weather.  It was breezy but not too chilly.  We followed the paved trail a ways then back tracked along the shore line. It's easy to push a stroller along the water's edge and I thought baby would like the change of scenery.  He fell asleep. I had a nice long conversation w/ God. Well, I tried to anyway but one of us was quite wordy and the other couldn't get much of  a word in edge wise. I think He got his point across though cause I found myself asking for forgiveness for quite a few things.

Later we did some not-Spring cleaning to get ready for Christmas, make room for our hope-we-get-a-tree.  Dh barBq'd and few friends and family came over. We hung out in the back yard and had a bonfire going. It was a nice night for that, clear and cool.

I am so blessed to live in such a great area with a wonderful climate. Being at the beach in the morning was way too nice.  I am so blessed that God chose me to be born in CA. It sounds funny but I am so serious. 

I rearranged my living room a bit, in prepration for Christmas.   This required taking a lot of the books and items off the bookshelves. In doing so, many forgotten books literally jumped out at me. 

One is: Hundred Dollar Holiday, The Case for a More Joyful Christmas.  I highly recommend it. I never finished it when I got it but I understood the gist of it in the first few pages.  I'm reading it again now.  It confirms and affirms how I feel about 'stuff' in general and is encouraging when faced with the temptations of all that is glittery, especially during this season of high consumerism.`
