Birthday Post

Today, I turn 59 years old.  I kind of feel it, too.  The weather is cooling and my arthritic joints are stiff and sore.  My joints do NOT like cold weather!  But, I will do my workout soon and it helps to get the kinks out.

I am going to attempt to list 59 things about me.  I don’t expect anyone to read them all.  I’m not even sure I will come up with 59, but here goes!

  1. I love the idea of listing attributes for every year of your life. What fun! I think I’ll try that this year (I have a few more than you!) Hope you had a very happy birthday (they seem to come faster and faster as we age, don’t they?)

  2. Happy Birthday! I loved this post! You could write a whole other post on almost all 59 things. Remember that sometime when you’re stuck for a topic. Maybe I should come up with my own list on my birthday next month.
