The Big 4-0
Yep, it was the big 4-0 for me on the Fourth of July (yes, I'm an Independence Day baby, I hear it made my American relatives happy).
As I headed off to work on Friday morning, the Reluctant Farmer handed me my coffee and asked if I was sure I could still find my way to the office.
One of my coworkers brought me four absolutely delicious chocolates (since 40 would be far too many), another provided me with an 'old lady survival kit' including prune juice, wild pink glasses and a really big thing of dark chocolate (yes, there is a theme here...) ... oh, and balloons that say 'over the hill' and '40'.
My kids gave me seeds for the garden and stakes for the plants, The Reluctant Farmer gave me gift cards for Chapters and for a wonderful yarn store that has all sorts of neat stuff for spinners and fibre addicts like me, and The Boy has some lovely fleece on order for me ... I can't wait to see it!
So, even though I'm old ... it was kinda fun.
