October Daily 30: Birthday

 


It's my birthday! I'm officially a senior citizen! We'll celebrate with our children next weekend (along with a daughter and daughter-in-law's birthdays), so today has been very laid back. 

I received a beautiful bouquet of pink roses (my favourites) and lilies from my parents and a jar of Mom's pear marmalade. Tim gave me a down jacket that we had picked out together earlier and I pretended not to know what was in the package. All in good fun.

We'll be going out for dinner this evening. It's been such a sunny bright day. I spent some time in the garden cleaning up for winter. 

This photo was taken three years ago, but I haven't changed too much in that time. Life is grand!

So pleased that you have enjoyed such a very happy birthday Lorrie with lots of lovely treats,
Seeing those leaves looking so crip and golden is making me wonder when ours will finally decide to change their colour this year. I drove past our local beech tree forest this morning and there is a very slight himt of yellow but nothing resembling their final autumn golden 'hurrah'.

Sorry dearest, a bit late here but the greetings are coming across the miles full speed!
Happy Birthday and many, many more. Glad the sun was shining on you and the gifts were lovely - I know dinner out was enjoyable with Tim.
Love that photo of you - such beautiful golden leaves - hoping we get some soon!
Love Mary & Bob xx

Happy Birthday!
Opening your post, the 30 grazes the title just enough for my reading mind to see 30...birthday. Thus, you are a 30 in years. :)
