The start of a new year in my life. Grateful I made it this far. Excited that both sons, DILs and grandbaby (plus 2 granddogs) are going to spend the weekend.
It was a quiet actual birthday as its just me and the dog at home. DH is on his last business trip and arriving home tomorrow evening before the kids arrive.
I started an OLLI class this morning, Post Impressionism, that is being held at a local artist collective gallery. Huge turnout of 74 enrollees which surprised me but gives lots of opportunities to meet people. I went shopping yesterday at a newly opened consignment store in town and found some birthday presents for myself: a cardigan, necklace and scarf plus a couple of toys for the grandbaby to have at our house. I wore the cardigan and necklace this morning and felt great.
Then I rushed home to await delivery of our den furniture which was ordered 8 weeks ago. Nice birthday present LOL. Now we have a furnished den off of the living room. I didn't even cut off the tags before I took pictures. We'll get pictures hung after the family is here.
Got to one grocery store to stock up and will do the other in the morning as well as finish babyproofing and cleaning. Can't wait to have "my dream come true" by having all of my immediate family together. Makes all the effort of moving across the country worthwhile.
Hope you have a lovely long weekend.
