the day i entered this life - MERRY CHRISTMAS!!

well, it's the end of the day. a wonderful day really. after a week of non stop rain, the sun came out in a brilliant show with blue, blue skies. yes, a great day.

we 3 got up, opened presents, and then began the day. very uneventful. i just finished some baking - mmmm, chocolate truffles spiked with grand marnier (pictures tomorrow), covered in toated almonds, walnuts, crushed peppermints, and hazelnuts....yum! and talked to several friends and family. had a few visiters. again, not much going on. very low key. only....

only......... it's my birthday. yep. the day i entered this life. and i don't have much to say really (which is a first!!) just that i'm very happy. content. peaceful. thankful. blessed.

i was in my element really. i the kitchen. juan on the sofa chilling. ladybug afoot with her tons of her questions! "can i help?! can i help?!"pots clanging. fancy utensils and gadgets here and there. i was busy making gift baskets for others, those in need, some nieghbors. friends. love it. but had to stop - i just hate that i didn't get to make as many as i would liked. because yes, i did too much. yes juan fussed at me. but hey, i'm gonna do what i do baby!

so, like i said. a very quiet day. but one of the best days of my life. because it is my birthday.

i shall be telling my doctors that they were wrong...again. wrong about me not be here to see it. i begin to cry as i type. now i'm laughing. at my doctors.

i have a great life!

i am wishing you all a very MERRY CHRISTMAS TO YOU AND YOURS. i hope its a safe, happy, and love-filled one.

and...... HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO ME.

i made it!




be well :)
