The joys of Birthdays!

Well, I’m in a bit of a quandary today ~ by the way, isn’t that the greatest word! ~ I mean I could have said:  I’m in a dilemma, or in a pickle or even in a predicament.  However, as I’m pulled in several different directions, I choose “quandary” on purpose because it doesn’t get used often and it was getting dusty!  And it also rhymes nicely with Safari J 

It’s my buddy’s birthday today and I’m so happy to send her my best wishes!  But for what?

·        “Way to go, you’re looking great for your age”?
·        “Cheer up!  Your Senior’s Discount is only a few years away!”?
·        “Make sure the smoke alarm is disconnected before they light the candles on your cake. AhAh!”
·        “I didn’t see your name in the obits today, so I went ahead and bought you a card!??

No offense meant, Girlfriend, if you read this; however I want you to know what I really mean by singing “Bonne Fête” to you today:

·        I love you every day and celebrating it out loud today!
·        I appreciate the fact that I know you and recognize it today!
·        There is no one else like you and I verbally acknowledge it today!
·        I am so glad you are a part of my life and want you to know it today!

Life is such a gift; I love to honor my friends with a thought for their day.  We are all special in our own way, just knitted differently, to pique everyone’s interest.  There is so much negative stuff out there in the world, which I love to ignore  for a few minutes every day I am given and throw a mental party to recognize the wonderful moments life can also bring us, if we choose to acknowledge them!

Signing off on another snow day, that much closer to my own b-day!

Better be a Little "S" than a Little Less!  J


  1. Woo Hoo I am in the Mental Party!

    1. Not a real deletion; just a correction! I wish there was an edit option available! ;)
      You're most prolific lately!
      And you taught me a new word "quandary"; thank you!

  3. Hey, it's so much fun to come up with the right sentences where one can un-earth some of these wonderful seldom-used words! I'm lovin' it! (TM)
    I like prolific as well, almost a close second! I just have to write when it's on my mind like that- a second career? Not a bad idea!
    Cheers my friends

  4. K., i can totally relate to not being able to submit a comment in this spot- i've just been able to do it recently after fighting with it and getting frustrated(politely) for over 6 months!
    My answer to you on telling me you enjoyed my first 4 birthday wishes is that i'll hold you to that when your birthday comes along in a few days! Famous last words!
