I usually don't fret about getting older. Well, maybe I did at 50. But this Covid-thing is being extra evil, with the old folks. That's me. People over 60!
But I pretended I wasn't 63 today. I got up early and ignored my aching joints, on my run. Then, Don made me coffee and a yummy breakfast sandwich. Both tasted even better with my happy dishes.
Don and I had all day together. Nothing new about that.
We worked on a puzzle and played our ukes. We're getting better! And I talked on the phone with a few special people.
In the late afternoon I got a surprise on the porch, from my neighbor. She happens to be quite an amazing Italian cook!
She even made birthday flags! I've never had birthday flags before!
Southwestern Dinner and Zoom-time!
After opening some birthday goodies, Don and I had an enchilada dinner. Then it was time to spiff up a little, for our Texas-Style Zoom Happy Hour... at 8:00 actually.
The kids in California and Oregon, wore cowboy hats and bolo ties. We toasted with margaritas and after lots of chatting and laughing, I got a very special video surprise.
Kermit Plays Happy Birthday!
Kermit Ruffins played his trumpet from New Orleans and added a "Happy Birthday Mama Beth!" at the end!
After Kermit's Happy Birthday, Don and the kids sang me another. What a treat!
Don's Birthday Creation
Later, Don sang all by himself, when he presented me with a fine sweet treat.
It's not every birthday that you get 2 birthday "cakes" or 3 birthday songs. Not everyone will be able to say they celebrated a Coronavirus Quarantine Birthday, either.
It was a good one after all!
I started this complaining list/blog, in May 2016. I posted 200 gripes about my breast cancer and then I was done.
On March 13, 2020, I started venting all over again, when another disease (starting with a C) interfered with my life. Only this time, it was affecting more than me. I ranted for a year, until I got my vaccine in March 2021.
Coronary Artery Disease was the reason I restarted this blog on September 26, 2021. This time it was Don who was dealing with a worry that started with the letter "C".
Coronavirus and Cancer, Coronary Artery Disease! All are evil, but none can totally get me down... if I vent! I usually end up feeling a little more positive at the end of each post!
