I Woke Up To Long Dark Curls Feathering My Face


To sweet kisses. To I love yous. The only thing that could make it better would be a Paint and Spackle birthday cake for breakfast! German chocolate, please!

My first birthday present of the morning is a load of dirt from my parents. Sifted. Good dirt, my mother says. For my flower beds. And that my friends is how you know that you've gotten old!

I'm 43 and I received DIRT for my birthday!

Happy Birthday! 43 is a good age! Enjoy!

Mine is Friday. My mother sent me a card with a check and an article from the Tennessean that was an open letter to Sarah Palin by a VU adjunct professor about "special needs" children and what she could really do about it.

Hope you have a wonderful year!

Southern Sage said...

Happy belated birthday! Dirt sounds like a great present to me. That stuff is expensive. :-)

Thanks for visiting my blog this morning. And BTW, you're not old. I just turned 50 two weeks ago. If I'm not old yet, you sure aren't!

Sorry I'm late. Hope you had a great day in the DIRT!

Happy Belated Birthday!

Ginni Dee said...

You have NO IDEA how I envy you that dirt!!! I'm also a little jealous of your 43 years. I remember those days well and they were great!!

Hope it was very happy and that you find loads of places to use that dirt!!

Oh and thanks for visiting my blog, I see you all over and thought I'd stop by yours. Very cool!! :)

Anndi said...

Hugs and smooches

Samantha Alice said...

I LOVE DIRT! Man, I would be so happy with a load of good dirt. Your mama is a wise woman, not just any ole' dirt will do for her baby girl!

Happy late birthday. I'm delighted things are going so well with you.
