When you’re turning 4, birthdays are so much fun. When you’re turning Sixty-Four, a birthday can kind of be just another day.
Except my family kept that from happening. Early morning birthday greetings from Court and my brother Dave. A crack-of-dawn Face Time call from our Vermont family. (When you can start out your birthday with a Happy Birdle Dirdle Toodle Yoodle Doodle sung by two grandkids, you know it’s going to be a great day.)
Bill bought me the L.L. Bean slippers I wanted and took me to lunch. Bec sent me a beautiful bouquet of flowers…..
Jll brought Addie, Alastair, Dagny, and Maggie Faith over to have before-dinner birthday cake (hey, it was my birthday!)…..
Jen came for the celebration and made me a delicious dinner of short ribs, macaroni and Swiss cheese, salad, and cupcakes for dessert. What’s more, we drank the “signature cocktail” we didn’t try the night before…..
Jen and I took a break at half-time of the Broncos game (which the good guys won in my honor) to look at some of the Christmas lights in our ‘hood…..
All this, and Facebook greetings from family and friends, made me smile this week.
Have a great weekend.
