The End of the Month…

February – my birthday month has come to an end today.  I don’t feel any older – and certainly don’t act any older!  I’m the one drivin’ down the road with my stereo loudly playing – “You Sexy Thing” by Hot Chocolate.

At 64 – I am fortunate.  Have no real illnesses that can’t be controlled by medicine.  Even my asthma can be controlled and now that I have a rescue inhaler am feeling better about it.

Live in a State that I truly love.  I think I have been a New Englander all my life – just never realized it.  I don’t freak when it snows – and rather love the look of the land when it is white.  The mountains still thrill me – and I love the back roads…they take me to cute and welcoming little towns.  The four seasons each give me life and a sense of adventure.

My income provides for my needs and a few extras…true I have to save for the bigger things – but, doesn’t everyone?  The things I enjoy – books, music, movies, fabric and yarn are within my reach in my home…and keep me creative.

My family stays close – sometimes not as close as I would like – but, we are there for each other.  My daughter stays in touch via e-mail, FB, and the phone.  My sister does the same.  And, of course, I see Mom on a regular basis – and know that she is healthy and well taken care of.

My cat, Killian, is almost 14 now – and he still makes me laugh at his antics.  I can tell he is aging…every afternoon between 2 and 3 he heads for my bed for his afternoon nap…and comes out around dinner time at 6 or 7.

My friends are many – and I enjoy spending time with them either in person or on line…we share many things – our quilting, knitting, recipes, and love of life.

So, I am thankful for who I am and what I have accomplished…my life is lived to the fullest and I am going to continue to enjoy it to the fullest!!!

    It sounds like you’re happy with your life and that’s how it should be. I feel the same about mine although during the summer months I’d like to live someplace else!

    You sexy thing by Hot Chocolate is one of my favorite songs! Perfect for blasting from a car stereo while singing along:) Seems like you had a wonderful birthday this year, it will make for a wonderful year to follow!
