Fabric Lover..

I saw this and it made me smile
Every fabric person I know has a stash like this,
 but they're usually less organized

and closer..
and walked right by me.
.He's so pretty!!

Santa Monica Stroll

On Sunday Mr D and I went out for Brunch and decided to see where the car took us.
We ended up in the ocean front in Santa Monica.
The weather was gorgeous and we had a wonderful walk on the beach

Meal Plan Monday

MrD and I had such a good weekend. He managed to spend time with the other lady in his life...his 1966 Chevelle...affectionately known as Lola. After working long hours he deserved to 'relax' by working on her engine for a while.. Sunday we decided to go out for brunch and see where the drive would take us. we ended up in Monica..and had a lovely walk along the beach. Depending on what may happen this week, we have decided to  go back next weekend...a little earlier... and take a walk on the pier.
I have such a happy life right now and am grateful for all Gods Blessings
Here's this weeks menu.

The Wonderful Box

A big parcel arrived in the mail for me
It was full of well wrapped little packages

It was a lovely box of goodies, old and new,
an early Mothers Day present from my thoughtful daughter.
I laughed and I cried...
Here are some of the wonderful gifts

A framed photo of my Little Man and me...
and two glass paperweights that were my mums

A mug that Miss C bought me years ago and I left behind...
and two new friends

When I left the UK, I gave my teacups away
This teacup, saucer and tea plate will start a new collection
My favourite toothpaste that I cant get here....
and a few lady

A pillow...that should actually read..
I'm as Lucky as I can be
Because the Worlds Best Daughter
Belongs to Me

And My Name Is.........

Well...yesterday I spent the afternoon at the Federal Building in Los Angeles. I had an appointment to legally change my surname. I thought it happened when you got married, but not, it seems, when you are an immigrant.
I'm afraid it wasn't as fruitful as I hoped it would be. Im still not Mrs D on my alien registration...although I now have a number. There were a few things that we got sorted that should have been done before but were not told. Different departments are telling me different things. Its like the the right hand dosnt know what the left hand is doing. To be quite honest...its all pretty confusing.
The main thing is Im now documented as being married and don't have to leave the states. I should be able to get an ID card in the name of MrsD but not a social security number...yet. Im so glad MrD was with me cos I just kept saying "no havent been told that" and "huh?'
Somebody please just give me a checklist so I know what Im supposed to be doing..

Dydd Gwyl Dewi Hapus

Dydd Gwyl Dewi hapus i bob Cymro ble bynnag yn y byd
- Happy St Davids day to all wherever you are in the World
Here are some Daffodils to remind me of home and
we shall have Welsh Cakes this afternoon
You can take this girl out of Wales...
but you cant take Wales out of this girl
