Another Trip Round the Sun

So, I'm 54 years old today! I can't believe that I used to hate birthdays, because I never really celebrated them but always felt like I should be self-consciously "happy" all day long. The last few have been so much fun, entirely because I have this delightful group of friends who help me to celebrate. Not to mention the legions of greetings here and on Facebook, which help to make the day special.

The major celebrations were last night. I joined lidocafe, superfoo, marri, kp, Eli, Eli's girlfriend Marinya, and Greg for extremely good Chinese food. We ordered much too much, but that meant that many of us left with boxes of leftovers for lunch today or future dinners. I was given beautiful cards and a book token (yay!!) and a gorgeous aquamarine scarf and a book I've been wanting to read and some nice smelly things to bathe with (and the promise of a hand-made toque from Eli, who KNITS, beautifully, among his many other talents).

Then Eli and lidocafe and I went a couple of blocks down the road to the Alex Goolden Hall to hear Great Lake Swimmers, and they were AWESOME. Here's a sample




And this evening, kp is cooking me dinner!
