Love the birthday card you chose for your friend. Hope she has a super day. Will you be joining her? Hope you can get your keyboard fixed. Enjoy your day! Will you be ironing by any chance? ;)

Claudia Moser said...

Desiree - Hi there my friend. It is a beautiful day out there, and my friend and I will be going for a walk by the sea :) No, I'm afraid the ironing will have to be put off for yet another day!!!

Claudia - happy birthday to your granny!!

Donna B said...

Awesome quotes! Looks like you need to clean under the "Y" key or get a new keyboard...I got a new keyboard at a yard sale for $1. The white letters rubbed off my old keyboard.

Loved the quotes and your new header pic.

Lavi said...

Those quotes made me smile, especially the card you're giving your friend. I busted a few keys too once. Maybe they need a little thorough cleaning.

I love them all! I love them all! :D :D :D
The keyboard of my laptop has been struggling to keep up with me for ages now.. Missing keys have been replaced by pieces of card that have been cut to size.. The apostrophe key tends to get stuck every time I touch it, and because I cannot tolerate anything less than a perfectly written post, I end up pressing ' once, and backspace thrice, everytime. :\ :\
Happy Birthday to your friend, and I hope you have a lovely day together.. :) :)

Sush said...

EvaMarie Sa said...

I love the quotes you've put up today - especially the one with the people that makes you happy :-)

The ironing won't run away from you ;) it'll still be there. I would definitely go out and enjoy the lovely weather.
Have a great day my friend!

Although I love the quotes and think Pinterest sounds SO interesting I am still determined to continue not visiting this fascinating site. Sorry about the keyboard!

Shady Del Knight said...

Thisisme, it's as if you're sHoUtInG at us half the time! (LOL) Don't you just love computer problems? You mentioned something called "spare time." Can you please explain what that is? (LOL) I love these sayings. I found a few good ones on G-T's blog this morning as well. Have a happy week, dear friend!

Linda O'Connell said...

Happy Birthday, and thanks fopr the inspirational posts.

Gawgus things... said...

A-ha! I saw you'd sneaked on there! There's sooo much inspiration there - it's knowing where to start!

Aunt Amelia's Attic said...

Your keyboard is really doing the random CAPS?!?

~♥~

Anne in Oxfordshire said...

Loving the quotes too ..of course the ironing can wait .... celebrating with friends is good :-) :-)

Donna B - hi. Lovely to see you here again today. Unfortunately, it's a laptop, so I can't really get a new keyboard! After I turned it off, it seems to be working again fine at the moment! (Shush!).

Lavi - glad the quotes made you smile. I thought the birthday card was pretty cute!! When you get to our age, you just have to laugh!! I will try cleaning the keyboard.

Daydream Living - hi Maureen. Don't worry, I know that you are busy living life!! Glad you liked the new header photo of the lavender in my garden. See you soon!

PencilGirl - Yay, you're here!! Sounds as if you are having real problems with the keyboard on your laptop. Fortunately, things seem to have cleared again this end :) Glad you liked all the quotes today. I've just got back from a lovely coastal walk and we walked along the beach and paddled in the sea :)

Sush - hi my friend. Your comment made me smile, with all the extra letters you put in there! Gorgeous day here today, so I've been out making the most of it.

EvaMarie - you're right, the ironing will still be there tomorrow. It's been such a glorious day today, that I simply had to get out by the sea and enjoy the sunshine!

LindyLouMac in Italy - thankfully, the keyboard seems okay again now :) I know what you mean about Pinterest. It's so easy to get sucked into these things, but it is fun!

Shady - sorry about that! I wouldn't shout at you my dear friend! Everything seems okay again now, so that's good news. Yes, it was funny that G-T's post also contained some lovely quotes today. We must be telepathic!! Enjoy your week and take care.

Linda - hi there. It's very kind of you to say that my posts are inspirational! I think I've hit a bit of a dry spell again now, so probably won't be posting for a few days!

Gawgus-things - yes, it was logged in as you, so I sent an invitation to myself from you!! Have got some super beach shots and photos of Venice on a new board that I've just made up. Funny that your blog post featured quotes as well today! Great minds and all that!

Aunt Amelia's Attic - it wasn't doing random caps, but the C, the H and the V wouldn't type in small case, so I had to put in a capital letter! Thankfully, all now seems to be well again! Perhaps I was tiring it out!

Anne in Oxfordshire - hi there. Hope the ankle is getting a bit easier, and that you are able to hop around a bit more now! Bet that's pretty tiring for you though. Glad you enjoyed the quotes today my friend.

BECKY said...

Love all of this! I'm a quote-junkie, too! Yours are all great!

Carol Wyer said...

My N had rubbed off so Hubby has tippexed me a new one on but instead of an n I have a smiley face...hope i don't lose any more or I'll never understand the keyboard.
Hope you get it fixed.
Love these quotes. I'm going to have to check this 'Pintofmilk', or whatever it is called, out more thoroughly.
I am so glad to be back...now some serious catching up is in order. How many of your posts have I missed?
XOXO

Thisisme. said...

Becky - it's nice to be a quote junkie, don't you think?! Glad you enjoyed the ones I posted today.

Carol Wyer - Pintofmilk indeed!! You silly mynx!! I reckon you have missed about 1,324 of my posts, so I shall expect a comment on every one!!! LOL! Nice to have you back my friend x

SkippyMom said...

OH the KEYBOARD snafu. You know you have my empathy [as I type on Pooldad's netbook.]

Time for some comics from YOU! heehee

Hope you are having a wonderful Monday evening and enjoying your garden. Wish I was there. :)

Thisisme. said...

SkippyMom - yes, that naughty little keyboard glitch has come across the pond!! Thankfully, it seems to be working okay again at the moment :) I'm afraid that I can't draw to save my life, so there will be no comics coming from me! :( Hope you're having a good day my friend. Hugs.

Chatty Crone said...

I have to say that first one meant a lot to me - it shocked me - thanks.

Belle said...

These are such beautiful quotes! Some of them have great meaning for me. The Bible verse where God says he will give us a future and a hope. I remember that verse often. Years ago, I didn't believe it, but I was wrong.

vintch said...

LOVE all those beautiful quotations, especially that Bible verse--it's one of my favorites. SO comforting, isn't it? He has great plans for us! Happy birthday to your sweet granny!

Bouncin' Barb said...

I love all those quotes. Every single one is so true. I'm sure your friend will love that birthday card too. Very cute. Have a great day and Hugs Awesome Friend!

Thisisme. said...

Chatty - glad you liked the quotes, although I wasn't quite sure why the first one shocked you - ??

Belle - I am so glad that you enjoyed the quotes today. Yes, the one about God is beautiful.

vintch - hi there! Yes, I agree with you. That bible verse is so uplifting.

Bouncin'Barb = thanks for dropping by my awesome friend, and I'm really glad you liked the quotes today. They are some of my favourites I must admit.

This was a fun post. I loved the quotes. I've wondered where you find all your great quotes.

Thisisme. said...

Denise - I'm glad you liked the quotes. I usually find it quite easy to see something that really appeals to me.

Odie - hi my friend. Yes, I can see that I'm going to love Pinterest. As soon as I read your post when you said that you had found it, I just knew that I also had to get involved!!

Becca - it's surprising how many of us actually love quotations, which is good. Thankfully my keyboard has been okay for the last couple of days! :)

Retired English Teacher - this is the first time that I have got the quotes from Pinterest, but it's a good site. Usually I just google a subject and up comes various quotes!
