Happy Birthday to Me,
Happy Birthday to me,
Happy Birthday, dear Me.
Happy Birthday to Me!!!
At this age, I am not supposed to like Birthdays. I use a magnifying mirror to put on makeup and see each line and wrinkle, but I don't care today. In the last month, I was shopped twice by Mystery Shoppers and in their descriptions, they each tagged me for in my 40's. Both my daughters phoned and wished me a good day and remembered me with special gifts.. I even got a card from the dog! I am enjoying my new Golding spindle from Gary, and have learned that by spinning much thinner, the spindle spins much longer. Last night I had a lovely birthday dinner at a new restaurant in the area. The sun came out today after 3 days of rain.
Life is good.

Sounds like you had a good birthday.
In a conversation with an old and dear friend, she said something very complimentary about me looking like I was 40. I said 'when did we get to where 40 was YOUNG!' LOL!

Happy Birthday 3 days late!! I am envious of your ability to spin with a drop spindle. Good luck with your new spindle.
