I turned 79 29 yesterday. A friend and I spent a lovely weekend at my aunt and uncle’s house, relaxing, having fun and just generally enjoying ourselves. I don’t ever get to spend my birthdays with family because it coincides with my mother and grandmother’s winter vacation, so for me this was a real treat.
Friday night: wine, cheese and a fire.
Birthday breakfast: monkey bread
The birthday card my cousin gave me. I think she loves me.
If you were confused by the title of this post… my job is done.
Yesterday I watched the Canada-Norway men’s Olympic hockey game. Between periods, I had a sad song playing through the TV while I worked on some other things, not realizing they were showing highlights from the game. When I looked up, I just started laughing. The combination of the slow motion replays and the music (“Worn” by Tenth Avenue North) made for the saddest compilation video ever. It was as though Team Canada had lost everything, or the whole team had died.
So of course I grabbed my phone and recorded it so I could share it with all of you.
