Birthday celebrations tend to come in waves, at least for me with my many families. So on Saturday, we had a kind of last minute birthday dinner for Tim (Aubrey's husband, who's birthday is the day after mine) and me out in Arcadia. It was very nice to see that side of my family, and dinner was homemade and delicious as always. I love my mother's cooking.

Mostly, people we caught short, since it was a week early. But Mama and Dave gave me a book of Robert Pyle's Shakespeare illustrations, and a book of Letters from Winne the Pooh, and a new story by A.A. Milne, called the Magic Hill. It is very adorable. Rachel, Aubrey and Time, all gave me "I owe yous", and Jahna gave me an awesome card with the promise of a pair of handmade earrings.

Today, Dad, Melanie and I had lunch at Samo's, and went the Bargain Barn, where I got more cool decorations for the party. They gave me an Elysian Fields gift certificate. I feel a splurge coming on.

Tonight, we make a big push to finish off the last of the cleaning for the party. The house needs it, but I'm not really looking forward to it. But most of the decorations are up, and my costume is made.

I've been thinking about the past year, and how things have changed... I always do that. And thinking about getting a little older. I know I'm not old yet, but the smile lines on my face are becoming visible, and my face has thinned out a little more. I think the dark eyes are due to not sleeping, rather than the aging thing, but you never know. So here's to another year.
