Yesterday was my Birthday. And I had to work. And the temps were in the 70s! And to make it worse, it was one of my nights to work until 6 pm. So Not Fair! But I still pulled my lounge lawn chair out of the garage when I got home, grabbed a beer, my music and my favorite book, and "practiced" for 20 minutes for when the weather finally gets nice. So of course, it's snowing right now--yesterday was such a tease! It was a good day, tho. Lots of Birthday wishes on FB and an angel-food cake from one of my co-workers and one of my friends sent me flowers at work. I assumed they were from Mom until I got a closer look at them. My friends know me so well! I'm having a bit of a problem wrapping my mind around '50', surprisingly. It doesn't bother me, it's just a number. But it just seems like such a strange number, all of a sudden. I'm starting this next part of my life, I was a kid, I raised my kids, now I need to decide what to do and how to define this next decade. It's really kind of awesome.
Ha, I got my next project done in two weekends! I think that's a record for me, but I guess there is a good side to this lousy weather we continue to get. If I can't be outside, I might as well put my time to good use. This is The Tiger-Spider and his butterfly wives. It's a story by Noel Fielding in his book, The Scribblings of a Madcap Shambleton. Color makes me happy and paintings on the wall don't have to be dusted, a double win! I may add some more butterflies and thicken up his face, but for now I'm just going to live with it and decide later.
