Yup. Today has been my first annual 39th birthday. It has been a great day. I have had several phone calls from people wishing me a happy birthday. It was great to talk to each of them. A card arrived in the mail from my in laws with a little mad money. No matter what else is going on, I always use this money for something for me that I would not normally buy. I'm not quite sure where this years money is going to go to , but I know that I will enjoy it. The kids had minimal homework that they finished in record time. I think that that was the best present of all. I was serenaded by my neighbours Matt and Cora of Vetch fame. I had several e-mails from various people whom I hadn't heard from in a while, and none of them knew that it was my birthday! I love it when serendipitous things happen. We had pizza and garlic cheese fingers for supper, along with a rather nice bottle of wine. The kids have been lassoed into doing dishes. And soon it will be time for cheese cake. We may just have a #3 and a#9 candle in the candle stash.
And earlier today, I was sorting through some photos that were loosely sorted and I came upon these. They are from last year, but this years peonies are just a few short weeks away. They are my favorite flowers second only to irises.
All in all it has been a great day! I may even let 40 come next year just to see what will happen.
