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.

birthday greetings

dear claire,

i hope you are having a really nice time, especially during your "birthday season". i was planning on coming down to sarasota to make it to your party, but alas, i am stuck in Ocala yet again. on monday, my dad was hospitalized. he has MRSA (i don't know if you have read anything about it--its a highly contagious blood infection). he came down with MRSA earlier this summer and was hospitalized for 5 weeks and got out right before the 4th of july. now, he's caught it again somehow.
i've already picked you up a little something for your birthday, and i'd like to at least mail it to you. i've been holding onto it for awhile. could you send me your address (in email if you'd prefer
again, i hope your party is lovely. give my love to shauna and james.
you are all missed.

Hey, wanted to wish you happy birthday and say that I have something for you! I will drop it off with James before he leaves work. Sorry I didn't end up making it to the party, but I hope everything went well.

oh my! thank you for calling, even if you didn't get a hold of me. I'm going to be in the Gainesville area for Thanksgiving, but you are probably heading home for that. We shall manage a meet up again soon!
