Ginko, Please

I forgot the PIN for my ATM card. . . the one I've had for 10 years and use sometimes multiple times a week. At this point it's basically an automatic, physical motion that kicks in when I'm in front of a keypad. Except for today at the grocery store when it didn't work. After two more tries I got locked out and had to call the bank to have them reset it. I think I know what it is, so I'll try again tomorrow at an ATM that doesn't suck my card all the way in. Shute. That combined with ordering and paying for a burrito and then almost walking home without actually taking the burrito from the counter is making me think that perhaps I am not aging well. Or maybe I've just reached my username/password saturation point!

Floury Footsteps

I liked the trail of floury footsteps. This is Nashoba Brook Bakery in West Concord, where I stopped to get a sandwich so I wouldn't get wilty later in the afternoon. Today I took the day off of work to go to the jewelry show with my mom & aunt. We all found a number of strands of pretty beads and will be wearing some pretty necklaces as soon as we string them.

Flowers I Like, Early Spring Flower Twins

My neighbors are far ahead of me when it comes to planning ahead for early spring color. I took these today before work on Thursday in an attempt to beat wilt and damaging rain. My four favorites can be paired off.

Happy Birthday to Me!

My birthday fell on a Friday this year, so I decided to throw a party for myself! I had fun, and I think that my guests had fun. I'll be having one next year, since my birthday will fall on a Saturday, and then a birthday Sunday brunch the year after that.

I took a photo of my wonderfully messy kitchen table after clean-up round 1 before I went to bed because I liked the oranges, reds & blues.
