Today is my birthday, and it has been a wonderful one. Everyday this week the mail brought another greeting from a friend. I honestly can't remember when so many of my friends and family remembered.
Part of the reason for this is that I have made so many good friends in this community. It's the best move I've made in years. Because of the internet, I've also reconnected with old friends who sent their wishes.
My Scrabble group took me out to lunch today. We had a very good time, then came back to my house for dessert. I experimented with a recipe and wanted to get their opinion. It's not that much of an experiment. I just made a lemon pound cake into a lemon lime pound cake. But that little change was a major step for me. I usually follow a recipe to the letter, never use my imagination.
Yes, it's been a wonderful birthday. So good, I think I'll have one every year.
