Funny I don’t look a day over eight.
The rumours are all true. It is my birthday today, so bully for me! It’s not even noon and it has been a great day already. I awoke to three little girls crawling into bed with me for a mandatory birthday cuddle. They are not so small anymore, so Jess had to leave our bed so we could all fit in. They showered me with gifts. With a PD day on Friday and a snow day on Monday, they had a lot of time to get crafty.
I received a beautiful nail and string #1 Mom sign, a I Heart my Mom on canvas, plus a homemade dress that I will have to wear at some point this summer. It is a beautiful snowy day here in the County, so after the school bus I got my dogs in the car, picked up my good friend Bree and went for a lovely, blustery walk in Sandbanks Provincial Park. Now I am back home in front of the fire, with a cup of coffee, and eating cream cheese flavoured frosting out of the tub. I better leave some for the cake or my kids will be broken hearted when they get home from school.
Jess has his radio show today, so I have the house to all myself. There was a design magazine in my mailbox, and there is a tasty salad in my fridge, so it looks like my next hour is fairly well planned out. As for the rest of the day, I am not sure what it will bring. My heart is warmed knowing I have a evening filled with good food made by Jess and the girls, an excellent glass of wine, or two, perhaps more gifts, and general pampering from the ones I love.
This birthday thing is working out so far.
Oh and here is a recent photo of me with a few more wrinkles, and one grey hair. I feel truly privileged that I get to see another birthday in good health, and with a life full of so much love, and good fortune.
Here’s looking at you 43!
