Itâ€™s been a lovely week of partying, and I am trying to get back into more productivity while the summer gives its last hurrah with a heat wave.
My post-haircut custard introduced the YAY-day!
Wednesday evening was spent at Lemontâ€™s Emergency Vehicle night, which I posted on Facebook. Aurora Rose had placed my name in their window, which was a lovely gift.
At midnight I opened my first present, which included the adorable bunny hop ring from Hello Holiday. I picked that package so I could figure out my birthday outfit the next day.
It was gray the next day, but I had blue skies in my home (thanks to Rory Coyne).
I opened more presents the next morning, took myself for a sushi lunch in the rain, then came home to 40 roses, and enjoyed basking in the love and well-wishes of online and telephone postings.
Even online media took part in the top 40!
Friday was spent doing paperwork and laundry, but on Saturday I went offline and spend the afternoon at Emily Oaks. Dragonflies were sparse that day, but I captured one new one.
As I left the park a Falcon landed on a branch, so of course I snapped some shots of that until it saw me approach and flew away.
Now itâ€™s time to figure out how to fill in this new year of my life, and I am looking forward to all the adventures that await!
Being alive is a wonderful thing.
