Yes, you are right

today marks 61 years. From the number of comments on other posts and in my email I figured not to wait till the end of the day to write since it seems that most of you remember from last year. Speaks to all of your great organizational skills.

I mentioned dinner last night, George took me to brunch today. The girls were most gracious with the Eldest finding me goodies and baking a small cake just for me; the Mole cleaned his room. Maus sent me email just after midnight.

I got a nice nap in the sun since we are having wonderful weather, did a bit of knitting and am listening to Howl’s Moving Castle.

And, if you want a bit of real fun – go read Mur Brewster’s comments on baking pies (as she has just survived another birthday).

    Happy Birthday!

  10. Hey, happy birthday your own self! And yet you give ME the present. I am already thinking of you as ever-so-slightly older and a lot wiser–since you seem to get other people to do the baking for you. Thanks for the mention.

    Happy B Day.

    Next year this time we will be in Lyon, looking forward to seeing you the end of that week.

    Rejoice; still too young to worry about Social Security or Medicare. But best wishes for your SPECIAL day regardless. I guess time zones make this belated greetings; sorry.

  14. Holly says:

    @Bob Aux contraire – greetings that last into the next day help the transition back to the real world where I am not the center of the universe (grin).

    Happy birthday!

  16. Cat says:

    And here I was trying to work out times (daylight saving and all) so that I did it on the day and not on the day before – now it seems I have done it on the day after – or have I? Have a Happy Birthday!

  17. Angela says:

    Happy Birthday, dear Holly!!!!

    Hope you had a wonderful day. You are so high energy now, I wonder what you were like when you were younger.

    All best wishes to you,

    And this is birthday. 🙂 I was remembering the 4th, which is my
    DISorganization skills! There is my sister’s birthday (last week),
    followed by yours, then my nephew’s, and then my dad’s, all within a
    week. Oy vey!

  19. Mark says:

    Happy B-Day

  20. Kathy says:

    Oops, I am not that organized. I wish you the very best on your birthday! And you got a clean room out of it. Yay!!

  21. Jane says:

    Happy birthday. Just think, only one more year until you can get social security (at the reduced rate).
    I am counting the months until I can collect full social security and my regular paycheck without being penalized. I’m having too much fun as a travel agent to consider full retirement, plus I would lose my travel benefits.

    Have a great year.

  22. Rich says:

    Happy 61 COL(ret) !! It’s hard to believe you’re that old ma’am. You don’t act like it, and I do mean that in a good way.

  23. Helen says:

    Happy birthday to US that is you & me!

  24. Margo says:

    Ah, you are about 5 mo. ahead of me – and, like me, you probably have a hard time thinking of yourself as that age. Anything over about 40 or 45 seems just too weird, doesn’t it? In any case, it sounds like you had a nice couple of days. And, as for your recent travels – I found it difficult to keep up!! Hope you had a great time.

    HAPPY BIRTHDAY and best wishes from all of us here –

  25. Lynne says:

    Hope it is the start of a wonderful year. And lots of knitting… consider yourself hugged!

  26. Steven says:

    And a very happy birthday to you! Hugs,

  27. Steve says:

    Oh…gee, guess that means I need to sing you “Happy Birthday”…, nah…won’t put you thru THAT torture… I was told in a play in grammar school to just mouth the words to a song…or else I wouldn’t be allowed on the stage. Another teacher simply said “DO NOT SING OUT LOUD…EVER”. This has obviously traumatized me and to this day, I rarely if ever do any thing other than the Star Spangled Banner…and that no longer fits for your birthday…so….just have a very happy birthday and I’ll spare your hearing….
