Today is our 20th wedding anniversary! 3/3/93 was the date my hubby picked for us to marry (so he could remember it :-) )  Also he knew 3 is my lucky number!

We have been through a lot together, I almost lost him when he fell 30 feet on his job site five months after we were married.  he couldn’t walk for 18 months, in a wheelchair.  That was a very difficult time for us, but we came together on a spiritual level, and had a spiritual experience when he was in the hospital in a coma.

He is my best friend, my lover, my soul mate, and together we look forward to what God has in store for us.

I am truly blessed to be married to my husband (Way Spiritual Dave).  He is the person who first said to someone who asked how he was… I am Happy, Healthy and In Love!  How could I be so lucky?  I think it is a God thing…

O.M.G. Yesterday my husband, and three friends drove from Palm Desert

Image

Image

Image

Anza Borrego State Park, on the way in to Borrego Springs

to Borrego Springs to pack up the entire house…

Image

Our Borrego Springs home… moving out and putting it on the market to lease…

Image

Tacos after packing… yummo and good fuel! With our friends from left, hubby David, Rick, Ernie, Jana and me in orange glasses

Off we go for new home in El Centro, CA!!!

Image

A long dust road from Borrego to El Centro, loaded up with furniture and belongings, after a yummy taco meal. The adventure prepping for the next Solar project for my husband.

After about three hours of loading, packing, and preparing for El Centro ride, we set out for the drive to El Centro about 80 miles… peace and desert, then the agricultural area where we tried to guess what crops were growing along the highway.

Image

On the drive home from El Centro after unloading all of our belongings up the elevator to the third floor of his new condo… which we love, by the way… we are a tired and satisfied crew who accomplished a ton today…

Image

Heading home feeling exhausted, satisfied, and grateful for friends who helped us make a major change in our lifestyle in one day!

Do you have friends like this?  I certainly hope so!

 

I am not ashamed to be almost 67, I feel I am having the best time of my life!

My son Andy was born on my 21st birthday so we share our belly button birthday!

Last year was the first time we celebrated together (a long story to be told here one day). Here are some photos from last years Birthday party.  Our mom,Flee, my husband David, and Andy’s wife Kristin, our only grandkids, Jennifer and Andrew, our other two children, David, his girlfriend Stephania and Dana made it the best birthday ever… we may never be together again as a family on our birthday but i have sweet memories to last me for a lifetime!

How to Have a Happy New Year

Many New Year customs that we take for granted actually date from ancient times. This year, ring out the old and ring in the new with a New Year tradition—or two!

Make Some Noise

  • In ancient Thailand, guns were fired to frighten off demons.
  • In China, firecrackers routed the forces of darkness.
  • In the early American colonies, the sounds of pistol shots rang through the air.
  • Today, Italians let their church bells peal, the Swiss beat drums, and the North Americans sound sirens and party horns to bid the old year farewell.

Image

Eat Lucky Food

Many New Year’s traditions surround food. Here are a few:

  • In the southern US, black-eyed peas and pork foretell good fortune. 
  • Eating any ring-shaped treat (such as a donut) symbolize “coming full circle” and leads to good fortune. In Dutch homes, fritters called olie bollen are served.
  • The Irish enjoy pastries called bannocks.
  • The tradition of eating 12 grapes at midnight comes from Spain.
  • In India and Pakistan, rice promises prosperity.
  • Apples dipped in honey are a Rosh Hashanah tradition.
  • In Swiss homes, dollops of whipped cream, symbolizing the richness of the year to come, are dropped on the floors (and allowed to remain there!)

Image

Drink a Beverage

Although the pop of a champagne cork signals the arrival of the New Year around the world, some countries have their own traditions.

 

  • Wassail, the Gaelic term for “good health” is served in some parts of England.

  • Spiced “hot pot” is the Scottish version of Wassail. It’s customary to drink a glass or two at home before sharing with neighbors.
  • In Holland, toasts are made with hot, spiced wine.

Image

Give a Gift

New Year’s Day was once the time to swap presents.

  • Gifts of gilded nuts or coins marked the start of the new year in Rome.
  • Eggs, the symbol of fertility, were exchanged by the Persians.
  • Early Egyptians traded earthenware flasks.
  • In Scotland, coal, shortbread and silverware are exchanged for good luck.

  Image  Image

Put Your Best Foot Forward

In Scotland, the custom of first-footing is an important part of the celebration of Hogmanay, or New Year’s Eve Day.

This practice holds that the first foot to cross a threshold after midnight will predict the next year’s fortune. Although the tradition varies, those deemed especially fortunate as “first footers” are new brides, new mothers, those who are tall and dark (and handsome?) or anyone born on January 1.

Turn Over a New Leaf

The dawn of a new year is an opportune time to take stock of your life. 

  • Jews who observe Rosh Hashanah make time for personal introspection and prayer, as well as visiting graves.
  • Christian churches hold “watch-night” services, a custom that began in 1770 at Old St. Georges Methodist Church in Philadelphia.
  • The practice of making New Year’s resolutions, said to have begun with the Babylonians as early as 2600 B.C., is another way to reflect on the past and plan ahead.

Image

New Year’s Folklore

Some customs and beliefs are simply passed down through the ages. Here are some of our favorite age-old sayings and proverbs.

On New Year’s Eve, kiss the person you hope to keep kissing.

Image

If New Year’s Eve night wind blow south, It betokeneth warmth and growth.

For abundance in the new year, fill your pockets and cupboards today.

Image

If the old year goes out like a lion, the new year will come in like a lamb.

Begin the new year square with every man. (i.e., pay your debts!) –Robert B. Thomas, founder of The Old Farmer’s Almanac

May this year find you Happy, Healthy and In Love my friends!!!
