April 4 – Happy Birthday to …. me xoxo (aka Mama Bear)

Arkkk….. half a century plus one.  Like really.  How did that happen?  Need to rejuvenate somehow.  OK .. everyone wish together.  Win the lottery!!  I will share like the flipped pennies.  Speaking of which, what happens when they all disappear.  Can everyone do this … save 10 pennies for October 10th.  Then on that date, spread them around.  Post this on your FB walls if you have one.  It will be the ‘Thinking ahead to October 10th Penny Wish for AT/PS”.  Inflation might move it up to nickels sooner than we think.

The ferry ride home was great.  Getting to the ferry was a bit hectic.  I had a 12:00 coffee with someone interested in social media from the mainland but was in Victoria for business.  Then I met a FB friend that I only have known since October.  That was cool to meet and chat but I did have to rush off to catch the ferry. Did I think I might be late for it.  Just a little. But it was the guy in front of me that got the ticket.  Stopped right before the ferry ticket window.  I was just following thank goodness.  The ferry ride home was beautiful.  Didn’t feel like a 1.5 hour trip.  Now the drive back home took just as long as it was rush hour.  Gotta love Victoria and it’s less hectic traffic.

Birthday wishes have been coming in all night.  Were they early ones or what?  Someone did remind me that not everyone lived on PST time though.  What can i say?  I am just amazed and flattered by them all.  Young people and older friends.  Holy comolly!!

I am going back to the Victoria area in May.  I hope to see everyone that I wasn’t able to then.  I didn’t realize how many people I did know there.

Also figured out that I am so tired from the trip. Might have been the late nights and the wine.  Then the early morning noises of a family that are early risers.  Definitely not me.

Men’s t-shirts came in today.  They look great.  The colours came out so very well.  Proud to wear them.

Need to sleep and re-energize.  Lots to do tomorrow too.   Hmm… let’s see… sleep in … Cactus Club with friends … then dinner with my family.  🙂   Love it!!  Red or white grape juice???

Hugz to all xoxo

    Happy Birthday Carol! According to “New Math” they are teaching these days, I guess that “half a century” = 28 years, right?
    Hope your day is filled with positive energy and warm feelings. You deserve nothing less.
    Thinking of you…
