Thank you, everyone, for all the great birthday wishes.

I had a fantastic day. Actually, I began celebrating on Friday (unplanned) but, hey, why not?

As for Saturday, I decided earlier in the week that I was going to clear the decks on Saturday so that I could enjoy whatever might come along. And I did just that. The only things I really, really had to do were to get up, shower and eat my meals. Other than that, I did a-b-s-o-l-u-t-e-l-y nothing and it was a bit of a challenge for me. I'm normally busy with one thing or another and to simply take a whole day and veg was more than I'd imagined.

However, I did live up to the challenge and spent the day "playing" outside with Bella and my beautiful, thriving plants and reading, listening to music and playing computer games. I took it so well that I did it again yesterday.

Had my birthday dinner on Sunday instead of Saturday and loved it all.

Being a senior citizen ain't half bad!!!
