“Birthdays are good for you. Statistics show that the people who have the most live the longest.” ~Larry Lorenzoni
I wrote nothing last week! So sad. Not that there was nothing to write about. I just have be “in the mood” so to speak. Still can’t say I’m totally inspired today, but here are a few odds and ends.
I am inching ever closer to 40. Of course, as I like to tell people, Oprah (that’s “Queen O” to you.) says 40 is the new 30 and we ALL know that whatever Oprah says is gospel. Hah! I guess 38 isn’t as scary as I thought it might be. But really, I just hardly notice anymore because one birthday is pretty much like the last one. Sad, but true. And the majority of my VAST readership (snicker) will know what I’m talking about. At any rate, my sister-in-law came to visit and a friend of hers tagged along…as did her dog Zoey. We had cake…OF COURSE. Cake ‘n steak. (I’m cake, hubby’s steak! LOL) It was a lot of fun. My hubby asked me what I wanted for my birthday and I told him I wanted cake and I wanted seafood. Got my seafood Saturday night. I’m not too hard to please.
My brilliant children.
I am not ashamed to say so. This should not be any major revelation, but now I have the paper to prove it. They both got interim reports from school last week and they are doing an awesome job!! They make a mama proud. Not only are they brilliant, but they cook too!! The kids made us all breakfast Saturday morning (only a little help from mama). Their Aunt Paula was impressed! It was delicious. Best bacon and eggs ever.
My new town.
I would just like to say how much I love my new town. People are so friendly here. We loved strolling down Short Central this weekend and showing off our new town to Aunt Paula, who had not been here before. We went in all the shops and restaurants and everyone was so warm. I especially love The Eclectic Chef (Ben) and Central Ave Coffee (Pam)! The Art Gallery was great and we had the best time in a shop called Marigolds. They have vintage stuff in there–furniture, old buttons, old aprons, civil war bullets, the squirty perfume bottles, well, you get the picture. They also had some vintage clothes and our friend Amber and Emma had a little dress up time. The gal in the shop was thinking we were all a little off our rockers because we were playing dress up and taking pictures! If she only knew how FAR off our rockers we are!! It was such a blast. Next time I’m in need of an antique coke machine (or a flapper dress), well, I know exactly where to go! Later we drove down to Mt Pleasant and ate dinner. Then went on over to Charleston…Amber was in need of some fudge. An all around great day.
I guess that about covers it. We laughed a lot and ate too much. I’m paying for the cake ‘n steak, and the seafood, but it sure was worth it.
…And now the odds must come to an end.
The most wasted of all days is one without laughter. ~e.e. cummings
