Forty-six years old! And I’m quite happy with that, thank you! No lying about my age.
I had a cup of tea brought to me in bed this morning. Lego Nut presented me with a cute present wrapped up in a jar and some paper – a little beaded knick-knack that he made which I have hung on my kitchen window, and a hand-made card and coupon book (coupons are for miscellaneous chores which I can claim at any time in the next year).
Tai Chi Man detoured to the local bookstore when we went out to do our shopping today, and I bought a 2009 Scrabble calendar, an address book and a deck of Motherpeace Tarot cards. Not that I know how to read Tarot cards, but I can learn!
What with this alkaline diet, there’ll be no birthday cake or meals out for me….at least not for a couple more weeks, when we’ll be reintroducing a small percentage of acid-forming foods.
My birthday present to myself is a fresh start. Time to shed all the stress of the previous year and move on. Sit cross-legged, take a deep breath and repeat after me….. ooooooooooohhhhhhhhhhmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm………………………
