I celebrated my birthday with family and friends today. And it was such a happy and beautiful day, even though the sun did not shine.
It was the people that came that made the day so good. All but one of my extended family could be there. My brother and his family as well. And some of my good good friends too. Some I hadn’t seen for a year or more. So nice to catch up and see how much the children have grown.
As usual I wanted to have a barbecue. Setting out the meat and vegetables and letting my guests take whatever they wanted and grill it themselves. I was a bit worried about the weather, but we did all right. Most of the children played outside for a long time, and we had room in the farm house for all when needed.
Off course I wished we could have been outside all day in the sunshine and soaked up the warm weather; that would have been great! Sitting under our apple treas, going to and from the BBQ as we wished and needed.
Maybe next time. I like to do this kind of birthday celebration every 5 years. I have already placed the weather wish for 2016 Then I want some sun!
Thanks for reading this. I promise there will be some photos from this day eventually…. and maybe some words as well about being 40.
Look for my 10 on the 10th blog post later today. I need some sleep
