It was my fifty sixth birthday today. That’s not bad … that I’ve lived that long, considering I didn’t think I’d live to be forty five. When we were really young, and talking about year 2000, figuring out how old we would be … forty five seemed so far out, so me and my friends didn’t even think we’d live to be that old. We were perhaps ten at the time 🙂 Now I’m eleven years ahead of that age and not at all ready to throw in the towel.
Birthday is almost over and I’ve had a wonderful day … in spite of the weather. We were under a severe thunder storm warning more or less all day.
Got two dozens of red, long-stemmed roses from my husband, which was totally unexpected and they are beautiful, as you can see.
Talked with my best friend on Skype this morning and that was great … we’re so looking forward to seeing each other in about a month and a half. The Internet has meant a lot when it comes to communication … got emails, ecards and a whole slough of greetings in Facebook. What fun!
