Reflections

Tomorrow I turn even older than I am today.

Well that happens every day,

But tomorrow is special-ish :-)


Happy Birthday to me?

Bah, being a winter baby in this part of the world means nothing special ever happens for my birthday unless I high-tail it somewhere warmer, and that's happened like once (or did it?) in my life!

What?

I just dream of a birthday picnic party in the park, that's all :-)

I can't say that it was a big, eventful year - more like coasting along the roads forged the year before, enjoying a few new views along the way and getting a bit jaded about the whole thing. I'm not complaining, lord knows I needed the break and I love my life!

I'm grateful for my health even if it's not perfect, grateful for all my wonderful pets even if it breaks my heart every time I lose one, grateful for our house even if it drives me crazy sometimes, grateful to have found my perfect forever horse (and let's pray he lives for many more years), grateful for my family and friends even if I don't see them as often as I'd like and most of all, grateful for my amazing husband Vegas and there are no "even ifs" attached to this one - just my hand on his sexy butt, LOL!

Whatever this new year will bring, I have vowed to embrace head on.

I know I will feel as many joys as I will sorrows, face as many challenges as results, as many frustrations as rewards. Life only comes at you once: don't spend it under the covers, wishing the hours away and counting the minutes until the next day. Before you know it your best years will be behind you and then what?

Yeah, I am gonna BITE into this year people!

I have several trips planned, some small and some big, some projects anticipated around the property once the snow melts, some new skills to master and a few fears to conquer.

Doesn't that sound amazing? :)

Energy, it's a good thing to have.

I want it, I need and crave it, I'm going to create it - starting by opening a lovely bottle of Beaujolais I got today to celebrate my last year as a 40-year old house farm-wife.

A toast to everything old, everything new, everything owned and nothing blue!
