birthday and May Day
So, I'm officially 66 now as yesterday was my birthday. I tend to connect my age with the year so mentally, I've been thinking I was 66 for 4 months. Then I'd have to remind myself when my age was brought up that no, I'm still 65. But now, it's official. 66 is OK, still my mid-60s even if on the downward side. The 60s was a hard decade for me to absorb but last year, I finally felt good about it. Not that I had much choice. I mean, I was here regardless of how I thought or felt about it so might as well get on with it, accept what can't be changed and make the best of it. Life is actually pretty good here at this point in my life.
Birthday selfie caught by surprise by my device camera that seems to take pictures of it's own accord. The 3 second live photo settled on the third second.
Here's another, better, sort of, the flash seemed to think it was too dark.
We went to the movie and out for dinner which is our standard celebration for every event we celebrate...birthdays and anniversaries. Since I'm a big fan of fairy tales and myths we went to see The Huntsman: Winter's War, martinis and dinner at Greek Bros. Bar and Grill.
The garden club plant show and sale was yesterday. I took my little plants for the sale and came home with some different ones.
I did not take a single picture. The plant show was small this year though they said it was bigger than last year but even so not even half as big as the show was when my sister was in charge of it. And it was too polished. Everything looked like it had been professionally done, so perfect, too perfect, boring.
I've been model making the last two weeks so until I'm ready to post about that and since it's May Day, here are some gratuitous flower pictures.
This enormous magnolia bloom is 14” across.
The easter lilies are filling the house with their perfume.
