By jove I think it cooled off just for me! Mother Nature knew it was my birthday today and she decided to dial down those temps. We’ve gone from almost 100 degrees to the upper 60’s. I’m pretty sure I’ve heard the flora around me heaving a big green sigh.
On the agenda today. First and foremost – whatever the heck I want to do! After I run 6 miles (I have to prove to my aging self that I’ve still got it) I think I will watch a movie and work on the quilt. Then I think I will putter, dilly dally, daydream, doodle, fiddle, goof around, tinker, and dawdle the whole rest of the day. aaaaaahhhhhhhhh – that’s me heaving a big green sigh.

sidenote: I must confess that even though no one is asking my age I have felt a great hesitation in sharing how old I actually am. Because I’ve become old enough to think that if I told you how old I am you would dismiss me as irrelevant, and incapable of being hip (as if that was ever a label that applied to me). I’m sure it has a lot to do with all the messages that women (& men too) are bombarded with that tell us only the young and beautiful have lives worth living. So, in defience of that crock of b.s. I’m going to
confess celebrate being 48!! And if you do think I’m an old geezer please don’t leave a comment…: ) Actually, the term my kids use is geezer plus. Boy, won’t they be surprised when the geezer plus kicks their butts.
