I had a birthday on the 28th of September. Yeah me!
Although I am only 48 – it was still an important one. And now I am wondering, why do we make a big deal about the 10s? Hmmmm, anyway, I celebrated for about 3 days. 2 days before and then on the actual day.
On the 26th I celebrated with some Reiki pals. I was a part of a Reiki healing share where we get together and do group healing and eat (of course). Nice group of people and especially nice was getting to celebrate with my “twin” Mary. We share the same birth month and day, except she is only 47 this year. Her girls gave me a very nice card, and a special birthday cupcake – sweet!
No time to knit because I had to scoot over to a new friend’s place to start the 2nd celebration. Here are some photos from that part:
I guess I am starting to look my age. But that is very okay. It is very nice to be what you are. A nice older woman *grin*. I can’t really claim to be middle-aged unless I am planning on living to 96. That is a bit of a stretch. But honestly, every day is a great day.
On my actual birthday I went to work and then had dinner at my mom and dad’s place. We have a tradition where mom makes our favorite meal. Mine is swiss steak and vegetables and for dessert, confetti angel cake and ice cream – sweet!
But back to days and time… I have been having a lot of odd dreams about the end of things. The funny thing is in the latest dream, the sun disappeared and I thought that it would be important to gather up all of my knitting (especially socks) and sock yarn because it was going to be very cold and I didn’t know if I would be back at my home – there was something about trying to decide if I would go to live with my twin Mary (great gardener) or head out for a trek to other places to seek out comfort and strength (newer friend).
And then I woke up. Although it was kind of a weird dream, it was quite nice in that:
- I felt safe
- I had plans
- There was knitting!
