When You're 53

 *You spend your birthday soaking up all the good wishes whether by email, text, facebook, or old fashioned cards and calls.  

*You let them sing to you and you let them say things like, "No doing the dishes, it's YOUR birthday"

*You give in and have that fountain coke.
OH yes I did..
*You blow out THE candle because there is only one in order not to make a scene..Your Knit buddies make sure you know you are loved.  
*You get adorable salt and pepper shakers in the forms of yarn and black kittens. 

*Family members who make a habit of lurking, leave you comments!

Fireman makes dinner for some friends and me.
He makes amazing shrimp marinated in 
STONEWALL KITCHEN's
Garlic rosemary citrus sauce.

*You love the whole darn day and you even get to knit a bit on your easy peasy shawl
in Channon's gift yarn. 

*Pretend friend Kim sends you a message that cookies are on the way...so you know you can extend the celebration all week and look forward to their arrival. 

*Your adorable high school and college aged nieces text you with loving wishes.  
You miss them in a good way

*Your Daughter hints at a yarn gift on its way ....

and you go to bed feeling like the luckiest 
53 year old girl in the world.

Sorry I missed your BD, but it sounds like it was pretty great!

I for one love BDs, regardless of how old I get ...

Sounds like it was a wonderful day.
I have a significant one coming up in a few weeks too.
I have been asked how I want to spend it. I might take a few ideas from you

Happy Belated Birthday!

Have you fallen off of the "no soda" wagon or was this a one-time treat?
