*A Drop in the Bucket*

Hello everyone,
Happy June. The last week of May and the first week of June has been a whirlwind for this couple of old fogies...Sweetheart and I attended our granddaughters piano recital in a rural community at a beautiful performing arts center. We also attended the 8th grade graduation for our other granddaughter went out to dinner three nights in a row and celebrated my birthday. I am proud to say I enjoyed my 74th birthday week. Wow!!!
It feels like a drop in the bucket!
This is the precious gift I received from my daughter and family. I love garden art and this bucket with a crystal drop of water is just perfect. My daughter found this in Ashland OR on a trip a couple of months ago. She knew I would love it and I do.
Every year on my birthday I reflect on what I've done during the past year. 
I have a very active, enjoyable life. I have pretty good health and I love retirement. When I start to think about what I've been doing for the past six months, I think it is just  A Drop in the Bucket.
This post is about some of the fun and work I have been doing the past six months.  

In the bottom of the bucket is a little hole for the rain water to run out.
I have this bucket under the pomegranate tree and while I photographing the bucket the wind was blowing. Of course the temperature was 103 degrees in the shade. Summer is here.

The garden was in full bloom.
We updated our Master Bedroom and Living Room 
Work, work, work
We celebrated Sweethearts birthday and took a little golf trip with a little tea room for me. I am so blessed.

 We celebrated the anniversary of our engagement and beautiful roses were my gift.
 I was taking down Christmas decorations and stopped for a fireside dinner with my Friendly Village dishes and my little English tea pot from my grandma. 
As you can see I was a busy old girl. Thanks for visiting My Cozy Corner today.
I love your wonderful comments and I wish I had more energy or ambition to post more often, but I do what I can do.
