Friday Friends and Birthday Fun

11 Jan

“The more you praise and celebrate your life, the more there is in life to celebrate.”

***************

Well, another year has flown by. I’d like to say I’m another year older and wiser, but it seems like it’s just another year older. I spent the morning gathering up art supplies for my art group with my senior friends at Towne Creek. I made a peanut butter snicker pie, and brought a couple of pizzas, salad, Dr.Pepper and some sparking cider for toasting the New Year and my birthday. I made a huge batch of Chex mix in between laundry and walking the dog. It was a busy morning.

When I arrived at Towne Creek, there were lots of hugs and stories to share because I was in Chicago all of December, so I hadn’t seen them since November. We worked on various drawing, poetry, and pastel chalk projects.

When we finished, it was time for our feast and birthday celebration.

We ended with our pretend champagne toast.

We cleaned up, packed up and I was hoping to get home before the the impending storm. When I pulled into my garage around 7pm, the skies let loose. I got home just in the knick of time.

It’s been a very nice birthday. Joe, Lindsay and the granddaughters called and Face timed a happy birthday song this evening, and I just got off the phone with my youngest, Matt. I’ve been celebrating all week with friends, with more celebrations and lunches ahead next week. I am truly blessed.

Now, it is Friday after all, so I get to end my celebration today with my famous Black Russian. Cheers, my friends!
