I was wrong. I took this photo this early evening. I know there were 3 eggs to start with. Apparently the photo I took yesterday was these 2 bundled together and the third egg was hidden under them. I thought it was 3 babies. Not the case. This photo clearly shows the 2 making progress ~ you can see their little beaks. I fear the 3rd egg isn't going to hatch.

I have the BEST facebook friends. Received a box yesterday and it was full of love!! It came from Constanza Berger Silva, a dear friend for many years now. She sent me works of art that she created ~ stitchings and drawings, an adorable tiny crystal bible, and more.
My heart is full of joy. I love the gifts I receive from friends, but the true joy is the love shared through friendship.
Thank you, my dear friend, Constanza. Please know I will cherish these gifts.

Had a great day with friend Mariette Hebert who is here visiting her son and his family all the way from Vancouver, BC, Canada. We had a good lunch at Nawab Indian Cuisine, visited some shops in downtown Roanoke, and Fresh Market. Lots of art talk with hopes to do a lot of future creating. Wishing she lived closer ~ easy and fun to spend time with this artist friend!

My friend, Anne, has made a lot of pottery over the years. This weekend, she had a porch sale with many pieces of her pottery. Today I stopped by and couldn't help but buy a few pieces. Beautiful pottery at great prices! Anne has a wonderful large open front porch with a cross-breeze that makes you want to sit there all day. I promised one day soon to go over and do just that ~ sit, chat, and enjoy the breeze.

Chicken Fajitas on the patio at Abuelo's tonight. SO good.
I was excited to go to Barnes & Noble after dinner (haven't been there in over a month). Very disappointed to find the doors locked. They changed their hours to close at 9 instead of 10. Sad. This tells me business is not good.

Amid the bumps in the road of life ~ there are little gifts, little pick-me-ups, surprises that make your heart swell with happiness, that bring tears of joy to your eyes.
You did that for me yesterday, Jan!! Just your sweet letter was enough to bring me happiness, but your little works of art sent me over the top. I adore the rock Madonna piece. It is beautiful and I thank you sincerely for thinking of me when you found the rock along your river beach. Your stitching enhancement is stunning!
Please know how happy you made this old soul.
Last evening was a bit magical. I left the house and this beauty was right next to the road as I passed by.
Then, I was admiring this beautiful giant Magnolia at Mamma Maria's Restaurant. Next thing I knew, Domenic Marletta (the owner) was putting the flower in my hand and snapping a photo!
An amazing flower with a divine scent!!
