Then last night, Paul made me a gorgeous meal -- a stir-fry of Asian vegetables with large, succulent scallops and prawns -- fabulously tasty and healthy, in keeping with some renewed goals.
So life is good in the last two years of my 6th decade, 50-something for a bit longer. Life is rich, and I'm grateful. Sitting in the sunshine, smelling the flowers, savouring family and friends and fortune, while I can. Life is good.
So tell me, what birthday traditions, quirky or sentimental as they might be, do you treasure in your family? Does anyone still administer the childhood "birthday bumps"? or know what I mean by that? Is there a special meal you must serve? Or a dish you always serve it on, once a year? I'd love to hear your birthday stories. Comments always welcome.
