If we were having coffee I’d be happy that I get the chance to involve you in my holiday celebration! It’s been a buy weekend, and I’m having just a moments down-time before heading on to the next pieces of celebration.
I’ve had two yummy breakfasts out, hit three vineyards for wine tastings, got a flight of chocolate-samples, wandered through a toy-store and a candy-store, enjoyed dinner out, hung out and visited lots, got my nails done…. and tonight I get to go to an arcade, more friends time, and tomorrow holds even more of the same 🙂 Lots of fun visiting with friends and family, just generally having a great time.
I only got one actual present, in the traditional sense (though lots of being treated to things, and people taking time to come see me, which is a great kind of present!) One of my friends (who always has been pretty excellent with the gift-giving thing) got me a copy of Haruki Murakami’s “The Strange Library.” I had just finished reading an ebook version of it, and let me say, this is one of those books where there the physical copy is a million times better than ebook — it’s just a richer book this way. I love it 🙂
I love birthdays, even though I’ve had some spectacularly terrible ones through the years, but recently they’ve just been so-so. This year, though, I wanted to have awesome celebrations, and I made it so! Though, of course, I’m not even done with my celebrations this year yet, and I’ve already gotten some ideas for next year (though, I totally blame a friend who had a brilliant idea for that one…).
The blog-party has also been fun, I feel like I’m getting to know Taliana more and more, and her story is getting more and more complex… it’ll be interesting to tie up just this one little party worth of story before Wednesday, I hope that even more people start to participate!
How are you doing? Are you up to anything exciting this weekend? Do you celebrate your birthday, or tend to keep it quiet? What’s your favorite birthday memory?
