Today is the birthday of my first born, my son. I gave birth to him 45 years ago in Israel. OhMyGod that hardly seems possible, that is that long ago. Another lifetime ago. But it is. Happy Birthday son. How can I have a son that old when I am barely older than that myself? Or younger? LOL We spent Saturday morning doing our usual garage sale/rummage sale/thrift store trek... dropped my art off at the gallery... and we enjoyed the medevil faire in our town square...
After a nice lunch at the local German Bakery, listening to live music and getting warm in the 90 degree heat we went home.
I put my feet up in the recliner, DH turned on the AC and I read and fell asleep. I was coming down from the excitement of yesterday of getting ready for the art show and this mornings taking my four pieces in to be judged! (That's where I am while you are reading the art gallery volunteering my services so I can see first hand how the judging works. I'll tell you all about it for tomorrow blog.)


  1. oh wow, 45..that does seem old for a son! mine will be 38 in june and i don't believe that either. happy happy birthday son...another hubby was 17th....61 years old, ha glad you had some rest.
