Team TLC + Romano Duo + Robert Christmas 2019

December 25 2019

Oh my goodness! Thank you Romano Duo!!

Homemade gift I made for Lillian. This was great fun! Using a book that was destined for the trash, I randomly opened the book and scanned for phrases to make into a poem. Challenging! 💙💙💙

Beautiful gifts from Thomas and Lillian. 💚♥️💚♥️💚♥️

I am incredibly blessed.

A good time was had by all. Team TLC + The Romano Duo + Robert

These two stoke the embers of my heart, giving me strength when I wish to be weak. There is no greater gift.

My eyes nearly began sweating when I opened this gift. A magical bird made from recycled material. Beautiful!!

Christmas Eve dinner was a big scoop of the homemade green bean casserole I had just made. Followed by a piece of apple cranberry pie. Christmas dinner was nearly the same, adding a big scoop of my mom’s potato salad. Yum!!! 💚💚💚♥️♥️♥️

Christmas gift from my brother. My eyes got sweaty over this one. And, y’all, I have absolutely no recollection of this, nor of even being this person. I’m smiling though. Always smiling. 😁♥️

Homemade gift I made for Mom and Frank. This was great fun! Using a book that was destined for the trash, I randomly opened the book and scanned for phrases to make into a poem. Challenging! 💙💙💙 🧡🧡🧡 For Robert’s gift I created a larger than life heart flower. 💚💚💚

Lillian thinks I made a masterpiece with the candy canes. Ha!! The vases are packed so I grabbed the French press container and added the candy canes. The inside of the French press fell apart, and I was wondering what I would do with the glass. Improvise!! ♥️💚

 

 

Nevada Humane Society Duck Races – River Rats

August 18 2019:

Although Thomas and I haven’t been able to volunteer at the Humane Society in quite a while, he was adamant he wanted to volunteer at the duck races …. as a river rat. (The duck races are an annual fundraising event put on by the Nevada Humane Society. People adopt a rubber duck for $5 each and the winners, first ducks to the finish line, win things!!)

The river rat volunteers get in the river and line the “race” section so as to help any ducks that get sidetracked. 20,000 rubber ducks is a huge load of ducks!!! Once the race was over, we helped get the 20,000 ducks out of the river. That’s a lot of work!! Thomas is in the photo across the river from me. 😃

I’m so glad Thomas suggested this. I didn’t want to go. I’ve got so much to do and I’m not a fan of crowds. Yet …. I had so much fun!!!! Watching the kids and their excitement about it was heartwarming. And, I loved swooshing the water around the ducks who were headed for the side, to help them back into the race. Cool!

Distance Reiki with Camilla Downs

June 10 2019:

Yesterday afternoon I had a distance Reiki session. Sending Reiki to a client in Surrey England. When the session was over I stepped outside to ground myself. Stood in the dirt, underneath this tree with my hands touching the tree. Then I looked up. Went back inside to get my phone and capture the beauty. What a session it was!

I have been on sabbatical from giving Reiki. When asked last week if I was willing to do a distant Reiki session, without hesitation I replied yes. That has not been the case in the past.

I feel it is time to offer this once again. So, if interested, let me know.

from Lalita … “The distance Reiki session with Camilla was healing nurturing, soothing, and powerful. It was a beautiful experience and one I treasure so much. – Lalita, Surrey, England

First Dinner with The Romano Duo and Dark Chocolate

October 23 2018:

First dinner with The Romano Duo in their new place in Dayton. What a treat!!! They made me my own pot of vegetarian pasta sauce!

For fun, we drove through Virginia City on the way here. We’ll leave earlier next time so we can stop for pictures.

Next time we’re gonna have the ingredients so I can have a virgin Bloody Mary!!! It’ll be just like old times, but different! We all had a great time!!! 🎉🎉🎉

October 27 2018:

I walked in Trader Joe’s to get a few items and walked out with Dark chocolate heaven. Wow!! 🖤🍫🖤

Lillian and Camilla July 2018 Date Day

July 26 2018:

Lillian and Camilla July 2018 Date Day

First stop: Fries for Lillian and a beautiful purple flower shortbread cookie for Lillian and a vegan oatmeal and date cookie for me. That was one darn good cookie!!

Second stop: Lillian absolutely LOVES decorative throw pillows. So we spent about 30 minutes ooh’ing and aah’ing over the shiny, sparkly, and oh so soft pillows.

Third stop: A special feature of one of Lillian’s most favorite movies: “Barbie and the Diamond Castle” in the lodge theater. We’ve been watching this ever since Lillian was about 5 years old so I’m sure we’ve seen it at least 109 times!

We would have loved to have a walk at one of our favorite places; yet, just too hot!! Perhaps later tonight! xoxo

Ended the date with a sunset walk. Just beautiful!

Icecycle Creamery for lunch. The veggie sandwich I had was soooo yum!!! Followed by 1/2 scoop Mexican Hot Chocolate and 1/2 scoop of Classic Vanilla. Perfect! Too hot for an outdoor part to our date. Maybe early evening we’ll go for a walk. Will see.

Amazing and Beautiful and Starlit and Shining Bright and Bee

June 3 2018:

Walk with Thomas before dinner. We watched for about fifteen minutes as this momma duck led her wee ducklings through the rocks to the water.

It was difficult to watch and not want to help as they kept sliding down the rocks. They finally made it!!! Safe and sound!! Whew! I circled the ducklings and the momma in blue because they blend with the rocks.

There was quite the cloud show.Rainbow cloud in the second photo. The photo doesn’t show all the colors; yet, it was amazing. Incredibly beautiful!!!
