HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO ME!

If I put candles on my birthday cake equivalent to my age, this is approximately how it would look, I'm sure.

I just paid my house insurance online a few days ago and since sometimes there are snafus in policies going through via computers, I will forego lighting any candles for a while. We also depend on the good graces of a volunteer fire department in this community so being a Saturday, they might be otherwise occupied, leaf peeping and such. So no candles.

I did get a wonderful tribute on Mr. Downeastdoingstuffs blog and I woke up to flowers, a card, some hazelnut coffee and a smooch. My new camera arrived just in the nick of time yesterday afternoon, so I am excited to try that out.

I'm not too thrilled that this day still comes religiously year after year, but I guess it's better than the alternative. So enjoy it I will.

Happy Birthday to me!

Happy Birthday, fellow Libra. I hope your day is wonderful and that the joy carries forward throughout the year. That looks like a Maine Coon cat in your profile photo. I posted a blog piece featuring my Maine Coon a few days ago...

Happy birthday - and I won't ask how many. One time someone asked me when my birthday was and I told them the month and day - and they asked me what year, and I answered "every year". So I hope your every year continues for a long time and you don't start any conflagrations with your candles. LOL
