Another Birthday for Me

Saturday evening was most lovely, weatherwise,

corn is kneehigh by the 4th of July

so Husband and I decided to go out riding our bicycles
on the Constitution Trail.

Yesterday was my birthday,

and I can tell ya from experience, it is really nice to have a birthday on a Sunday when I am doing my gig in the church kitchen.
I got so many Good Wishes, and bunches of Huggs.

Plus my brother called in the evening and we talked for half an hour, only a week after we had some family togetherness.
I had almost finished a heaping helping of strawberries with poundcake, my favorite dessert.  I just love that the berries are getting ripe in time for my celebration.  It’s been this way for all my life.

Click on the picture there to see most of my booty.
There’s a crystal bowl from my sister Denise.  She gave it to me a week early, while I was in Ohio, saved on shipping and insurance by doing so.  A gift certificate to Amazon from friends Mary and Jay, a gift card to Kroger from youngest sister Danna and husband Joe, a scrubbie from Aldine.  A couple cards from sisters Denise and Darla were not available while I had the camera out (they might be in my crochet bag?).
The one with the balloon came from our dentist 😉

I guess the best gift at age 51 is still being able to get on a bicycle and ride 6 miles.

Granted, it is level ground on a paved trail, but I know a guy just a few months older than me who has had joint replacements on both knees already.

Speaking of health and well-being, I’d better move the old bodd out of this chair and carry some laundry out to the clothesline.
Another sunny day should have them dry in no time.

~~love and Huggs, Diane
