Birthdays and Bananas

Yesterday was my birthday. I don’t talk much about my age, religious beliefs, political leanings, or anything else here on the blog. In the effort to be totally transparent I’m going to tell you!  I am 58. Every day of that has made me who I am……. I like that person most days.

I made a return call to my grandboys via bananaphone yesterday from the grocery store. This makes one totally open, let me tell you.

I’ve made promises to myself that I intend on keeping.

  • Knit More & Worry Less
  • Be Happy Every Day
  • Do What It Takes to Be Joyful
  • Let Gratitude Bubble Forth
  • Dance & Laugh As Much As Possible

I’m doing what it takes. Everyday.  I’m working the plan and that plan may include a relocation in the next year. I am no longer willing to put off until tomorrow what I can do immediately to be as happy, as genuine as possible.

p.s. Get a bananaphone. I recommend them highly.

    I love your “resolutions” “return to goals” whatever you’re calling them. Simply lovely.

    Oh, my goodness! I had no idea. Happy, Happy Birthday!

    Next time I see you, let me treat you to a drink / cake / ball of yarn?

    I hope it was wonderful!

    Happy Belated Birthday….could we agree I am fashionable late? :-) I hope your 58th year is going great. I stopped over to get a photo of you to show my husband so he could “evaluate” your hair – and trust me, when he gets home and gets a chance to see it, he will be honest. I will let you know!

    Big hugs
