Seventy Years and Counting

I can’t believe that I turned 70 yesterday

I don’t feel a day over 50, until I put out my back lifting a towel out of the laundry basket or wrenching my wrist trying to collapse some cardboard packing materials. That said, I’ve recovered relatively quickly and had a great day at my special birthday party in the garden yesterday. I’m always happiest when I’m surrounded by friends and family and 35 of them showed up.

The weather was absolutely beautiful, if not a tad too warm but when the shade came over the deck and patio, sitting outside was very comfortable. I was showered with love, cards, wine and flowers. There was lots of food and drink and everyone seemed to be having a good time.

For the rest of the week I’m spending time with my daughter and granddaughter before they return to New Brunswick and to get my birthday present from them I have to visit them in Moncton to use my gift ( a day at a Nordic Spa). I see a flight in the near future.

Thanks to my husband for my new patio furniture and thanks to Andrea for helping me put it together so that we could enjoy it at the party.

This mural was so large that I had to post it in four parts. Here is the last portion. If you’re ever in the neighbourhood you should check it out.

Thursday Trios – Sorry for the Delay

away last week and working like crazy this week to get the house ready for my big 70 birthday

I wanted to post something a little different for Thursday Trios this week but I’m physically exhausted. This is the best I could come up with. Hopefully you’re having more luck finding trios this week. I need your inspiration. Please share.

If you’d like me to comment on your trios please copy the link from this post and copy it into your own post. I’ll get a pingback and after the weekend, if not sooner, I’ll get back to you.
