It's my birthday today! Another year older and maybe a tiny bit wiser or not. It's been a good day, hubby bought me breakfast and I slept late since I am not working at the moment. Also I don't have shingles or whooping-cough as birthday presents as has happened before. I am healthy, relaxed and enjoying my day. I always like my birthday but some actually days have been better than others.
I made this necklace a few weeks ago for myself with the intent on me keeping it instead of for sale in my shop. I like it and it feels like the perfect gift to give to myself. I also got to go to a clay workshop this past weekend (more on what I made there in a later post) and my mom got me tickets to Billy Joel's show in Madison Square Garden in October (OK I picked out the tickets and she offered it as a gift) I got pretty a decent seat - especially since there are very few left, he's almost sold out until the end of 2014. He is my ultimate favorite singer, I haven't seen him perform since there early 2000's.
So altogether this is a good start to the new year. Although this is the very first time my age has bothered me (a little) but then at 48 if this is the first time I'm doing ok. Why do guy age so much better anyway? Robert Downey Jr turned 49 this week as well (April 4) - it's not fair. small pout.
