Ageless wisdom…a birthday blog

What a start to a beautiful day, but then again there is something beautiful in every day.
But today is extra special as it is my birthday. I like to tell my friends that I am now thirteen but that would be untrue. Go ahead and guess if you want to, maybe I’ll tell you the real age….not like it’s a big secret….shhhhhh.
So for today my first and maybe only post (haha, I know, right?) I am making a list of things I’ve learned in my years on this little orb we like to call earth.

1. Ice cream cake and too many candles do NOT mix, they do make a mean milkshake though.
2. When strolling out after a nice day of rain, always look Down to see where you’re walking, as the pups will tell you, those are not mud puddle pies.
3. When the foreclosed house has a moving Van pulling in at the crack of dawn, be afraid….be very afraid.
4. If it’s your birthday, you can run around naked outside…ok, I made that up….besides, the moving Van just pulled in. No more skinny dipping.
5. If it’s your birthday you can be queen for the day. To heck with that, I’m a queen every day!!!! See? Kiss the ring….or is that the pope?
6. When cooking food for friends, tenderloin wrapped in diapers on fire is a fun way to let them think they’re not going to get a good meal and I can see them looking at each other, maybe wondering how far to the nearest Burger King . Apologies to my vegan followers.
7. Just because the sun is shining and the weather lady said there will be no rain, do not, I repeat, DO NOT believe her. She lies all of the time, so wear dark clothes as at my age, wet t-shirt contests just ain’t right.
8. For the ladies, when shaving your legs to go out to a nice dinner, double check in bright light as a swatch of farmer field not mowed does get noticed, if only by yourself after you’ve left the house and you will keep looking at it and then others will too.
9. Wear whatever you want, even if it does not always match. Gotta embrace the stylish you after all, but I still think plaid and polka dots do not go nicely together and tie dye at a formal affair will only serve to getting you kicked out promptly. I don’t know this for a fact, but I would think so.
10. When it’s your birthday you can do whatever you want (except run for president, because who would want that crummy job). You can eat what you want, go where you want, do what you want, etc…..and I think that’s it for now. Gotta go fly my kite and run barefoot in the puddles naked.
Peace friends and have a blessed day full of love, light, and all things good.

Day off, thank you Mr President…..

On a well deserved day off, paid for by my employer, I took a selfie for the occasion…..ok it really isn’t me but as I sit here still in my bathrobe, feet cold and fourth cup of coffee flowing in my veins, I am pondering my list of intentions for this day. Now these are in no particular order of course but I will get to them all…..I think.
1. Get dressed already. So hard to do when the pup is on my feet keeping them cozy.
2. Tidy up….dishes, make the bed, etc….cat yak already cleaned up as she did it right next to me.
3. Out to lunch with Mom if she can make it.
4. Shop for essentials…that would be Guiness and dog bones.
5. Fold the laundry I did yesterday and put it away…they are socks….they don’t wrinkle so what’s the rush. Besides, the cat is comfy too in the basket.
6. Make dinner…which tonight is Goulash, which my hubby lovingly refered to as Ghoulash…as in ghoulish….scary…hey hon, I know you are reading this and nodding.
7. Take a shower…hope hair dries before I leave or it will look like my frozen web post earlier. Then I could catch a cold, then I would have to call in to work…hmmmmm. Now that sounds like a plan.
8. Eat breakfast…two slices of cheese….yep, can cross this one off of the list.
9. Stop and get new tag for the pup….in case she forgets who she is….although she is doing quite well at answering to “hey, come back here damn it!!!!”
10. Feed the birds….and the squirrels, and the mice or anything else that is emptying the feeder daily.
Ok, a hefty project I know, but one way or another I know at some point I will get off the couch and move. Um, yeah, come on sloth….you can do it. (See, I can read my husbands mind when he is miles away).
Moving honey….no fear…
