I am ecstatic that the photorescue advanced pc software I purchased has resurrected four thousand photos from a drive previously impervious to all attempts to resuscitate.

Ecstatic, I tell you.

I was thrilled by finding the IRS refund check in the mail, but I believe I'm happier for you, BigV. Four thousand photos almost lost? That would kill me! 'Tis good that the software worked, yes indeed.

Spring. In full bloom, all over my yard.

Damn. That is a beautiful place. Just awesome.

What kind of trees are those? With the pinky-purple blooms.

Thanks! The big ones are ornamental cherries. There's also a weeping cherry and a crab apple tree.

This one was pretty too...

Your yard is like something out a dream, jinx. Beautiful! Must be great to look out over that in the mornings.

jinx 04-28-2009 08:37 PM

I love it, it's brief but awesome. Supposed to rain tomorrow and it'll be all downhill from there...

Things that are making me happy today:
-I got my car back from the body shop! Woohoo! The folks there did an awesome job. It looks great, and it is SO nice to be mobile again after a week and a half of being stranded.
-Car came back just in time for me to be able to swing out to pick up a few decorations for Kitsune's birthday. He had a final exam to take and was home late, but at least I got the table decorated for the nice dinner I cooked him.
-I aced my last class, and get to go pick up all of my final assignments today.
-Both of my parents will be coming up for my graduation this weekend. My mother has a deep fear of driving -- I think it probably qualifies as a phobia -- and she lives four hours away. Last year, when I got married, she was trying to convince me to come pick her up before the wedding but eventually got a friend to drive her. For this weekend she decided to drive herself up, with a responsible friend in the passenger seat for advice/support. I am very, very proud of her, and ecstatic that she gets to come see me walk. Prayers/good wishes/positive vibes for her to make a safe trip would be very much appreciated.

All in all, it's just a happy kind of day.

Go, ChocoMama! And congrats to Choco and Kitsune!

fine Scottish weather we're havin' here. Nice, soft rain coming down at a slight slant so it doesn't sting you.

When I first read Pie's post, I thought that Choco's happy (which I hadn't gotten to yet) was going to say she was going to be the next to be adding to the Cellar family.

Though I am dissapointed that's not the source of her happy, the news about her mom is really great! Way to go! :driving:

*smiles* wonderful that your mum will be there choco:) Way to go, chocomama!

I gave blood today. It always makes me feel good about myself when I do that. So I'm happy about that.

This time, I also signed up for the bone marrow database. They took a couple cheek swabs, and will put me in a database. There's a one half of one percent chance that I may someday match somebody who needs bone marrow transplant. If so, I'll have a big decision to make, since the procedure is pretty invasive, but I'd be saving a life. We'll cross that bridge if I come to it.
