I had a "landmark" birthday mid-August. Yes my fine friends, I turned the big six-o...60. Where oh where did the years go? I am pleased to report that I did not fall apart! Neither mentally nor physically. :D I have no aches and pains. The right knee creaks a bit, buy my sister-in-law's knee has creaked since she was a teenager and she is still going strong at 56...so I'm not worried. Over the years, as I've hit "the" age, I have thought, "I am in better health than Mama when she was this age." I continually thank God that this has held to be the truth.
When Sam and I married 16 years ago, I told him that I was not big on cut flowers...an expense to just throw away in a few days and I would rather got out someplace nice to eat or...just buy me CHOCOLATE! :D
So for my sixtieth birthday I was surprised for the third time since we married with a beautiful bouquet.
My birthday celebration continued when I was surprised at the pizza place to find Cody, Brook, and Isabel waiting for us after church! Such a sweet second surprise!
And a perfect chance to show-off my very first homemade bagels!
