Happy Birthday to Me!



Today is going to be a little different.
I'm not going to post about anything that we have done, made, improved, etc.

You see

Yesterday was my birthday.

I am sixty years young.

Man, that is sooooooo hard impossible for me to comprehend - I don't think that I'm "that old", I don't feel like I'm that old (most of the time), but the calendar says I'm 60.

I remember being a teenager and thinking 60 was OLD!

Well, guess what, all you youngsters out there, 60 is YOUNG!
That's my story and I'm sticking to it!

Anyway, I received two beautiful gifts of flowers.

First, my oldest daughters that live in Atlanta sent me these beautiful tulips.



Tulips are one of my favorite flowers.








 Aren't they beautiful?



Thank you Crystal and Kim!


When I got home from work - Mountain Man wanted to go out and sit on the patio for some reason (it is REALLY hot here and MM does not like the heat.)  Well, I go outside and look what I found -----



This beautiful patio hydrangea plant.

This is another one of my favorite flowers.
Mountain Man had given me a hydrangea plant four years ago when we lived in North Florida.  We had to leave it when we sold our home and starting traveling - that is also the year he gave me "Mac".  He knows how much I love this flower and we saw these at Lowe's yesterday.  I was very surprised to see a plant on the porch this afternoon.







While I had to work (don't we all?) I started the day with beautiful cards - even one from my four legged babies.

So, while I might have hit the BIG 6 - 0, I look at it this way - I'm that much closer to being able to draw my Social Security benefits!
WOOT! WOOT!

Have a great weekend and I'll "see" you Monday with the menu plan!

Hugs -

Carol
