Birthdays Keep Happening, But That’s Good When You Consider

I just experienced a further birthday. How did a total year move so swiftly? Wasn’t I just 70? Nope. That was in 2019 when they ended up just commencing to get worried about the COVID pandemic. The summer of 2019 was when our youngsters and their families came to Hawaii to assist me rejoice that 7 ten years milestone. How could time have flown by so speedily?

Nevertheless, I have felt time on my body. Small issues are tougher to do. Phrase retrieval from my foggy mind is getting tougher and more challenging. Walking tires me a lot quicker. (Artwork suggests it really is my creativeness.) And I’m receiving relatively clumsy at situations. There is skin sagging below and there. It’s pretty perplexing even although it is really envisioned.

Despite all that, spouse and children and friends created my day specific.

There were being playing cards from fantastic instructor mates in Illinois who haven’t forgotten me. We do textual content each and every other all the time. 

Birthday text messages binged on my phone through the day.

There was a prolonged FaceTime call from our young children and grandchildren in Illinois and Maryland. And of course…extremely sweet gifts.

And then Artwork and I did our birthday tradition of heading to Starbucks for my no cost birthday drink. I also cashed in my “stars” for a free matcha frappuccino for Art. I acquired the mocha frappuccino. We then sat less than some blossoming shower trees for a peaceful and happy minute alongside one another.

I believed that was it for my birthday celebration, but then our doorbell rang.

It was my cousin stopping by with this birthday bouquet. I was unquestionably floored. 

She and her loved ones just required to thank us for trying to preserve my bedridden aunt’s spirit up during this attempting time.

Artwork and I do not give each individual other true presents for our birthdays. We often feel like we have the material things we require. 

But we are going to just do minor matters for just about every other.

I’d been wanting to place up hooks in our closet for a even though, but there truly was no will need for a person. 

Our Dyson vacuum cleaner experienced died and we were remaining with this quite durable attachment provider. I assumed it would be fairly helpful in the closet… if I could cling it up (instead of throwing it away).

Art does not like to put holes in the partitions. He definitely won’t.  However, it was my birthday, so there it is!

But now… what to set in it?

We failed to get a cake, but we did go to a favorite Korean cafe for a just take-out supper. The foodstuff is brilliant there but the proprietor is often affectionately termed The Offended Korean Woman simply because she can be a little bit brusque at moments.

We went in to pick up our purchase and the owner/girl was tremendous, tremendous pleasant, entire of smiles and useful. The serving sizing was so major that we experienced plenty of for 2 dinners. 

So yup. All in all…

It was a quite pleased day, a incredibly, quite pleased day.
