I’m another year older as of Sunday!
I celebrated by birthday this last weekend. Next year will be a big one for me, so I’ll be enjoying this year before I move up to a new decade. Below is the artwork that a friend’s daughter drew inside my card. I told her that I was impressed with all of the details she included. I was able to spend some time on Saturday night with a few friends. It felt so good to see them – it had been awhile since I’d seen a couple of them.
It was another low key birthday thanks to Covid. It’s hard to believe that this is the second pandemic birthday for me. I’m really hoping that next year things will be closer to normal. I celebrated Sunday night with my dad and brother. We ordered Shawarma for my birthday dinner which I really enjoyed. It was really good. We finished off the night with a vanilla birthday cake that I had made earlier in the day. I’m still trying to figure out how I want to spend my birthday money. On the list is a black quilted Kate Spade bag from a consignment store downtown. Does anyone else have a hard time deciding how to spend money or gift cards that they’ve been gifted?
This week has been busy so far. I’ve had a bunch of medical appointments with a couple more to go later on this week. I’ll be glad once they’re done. Most of them are tough appointments with tough conversations. I was able to get in some quality time with my boyfriend and his dog yesterday. We went on a walk and then hung out for a bit afterwards. It always feels good when his dog gets so excited to see me – he gets so wiggly and full of kisses.
