I turned 32 the other day. Three years ago I posted a list of things to do before I turned 30. By the time I turned 30, I had accomplished quite a few of those things. The past two years have passed without a birthday post. In my 30th and 31st year, I mothered, wifed, taught, friended, loved, laughed, cried, created, sang, danced, ate, slept, built, performed, invented, read, wrote, skipped, cleaned, listened, shared, played, participated, collaborated and relaxed. THANK YOU EVERYONE for the love and wishes and kisses and flowers and cards and phone calls. I feel loved. xoxo.
Normally we have a big weekend of campers on our lawn for my birthday weekend, but since we had our Beer Fest shebang back in May, we opted out this year. A handful of people are expected to join us for fireworks at dusk (hopefully?).
Today marks Canada’s 146th birthday. I fondly remember when it turned 125. We celebrated at school with songs (Canada, Canada… one nation… sing-a-song, sing-a-song, a celebration… let’s tell the whole world that Canada’s 1-2-5) and a tree planting. We made Canada art and dressed in red.
Please enjoy some awesome Canadian musak.
