It's My Birthday Tomorrow!

It is my birthday tomorrow . I will be 45 years old. That’s super super awesome because now I can say “I’m hip, I’m cool, I’m 45”.

 When it’s your birthday, people often ask you how you are going to spend your special day. Of course, I can’t do everything in the whole world that I want to, but here’s a partial list of what I’d like to do to celebrate my natal day:

Get my run over with early in the day. I’m hoping that it’s one of those runs where it feels effortless.

Wear my favourite summer dress from Yoka.

Have a latte.

Sit on the front step, with a good book, and Gracie. I am currently reading:

Have a sandwich

Browse through the bookstore.

Snuggle Fiona

Watch TV with Brian.


Order needlepoint supplies on line.

Ride my new bike!!

Buy some fancy soap at the lady store down on Queen St.

Order in Thai food for dinner.

What I will actually do is do my exercises begrudgingly, wear grubby shorts and a t-shirt, have re-heated coffee, yell “NO” at Gracie most of the day, clean up dog crap on the floor, vacuum and pick at my cuticles. Later I’ll watch TV with Brian and needlepoint.

And that will be pretty good, too.


  1. I think you should put the pretty dress on as soon as you are finished exercising. Makes the day feel special. I hope you have a sandwich. Why not? You and Gracie could go for a walk and you could buy a sandwich on Queen. Stick a candle in your sandwich.
    I'll be thinking of you!
    Love, Mom

  2. Stick to your list! It's a good one and your birthday present to yourself!

    Ellen - you are the coolest girl on the planet. I think it would be best if you don your tiara as soon as you awaken and shout orders to people all day long. How can they help but obey your every whim? You rock most rockaliciously... :)

  6. I KNEW someone I knew had a birthday today! I couldn't remember who though. Thanks for reminding me and Happy Birthday!
    I think your list is wonderful. I hope you at least do some things on it.
    (Is that your kitchen? It's beautiful!)

  7. Happy Bday!!
    I love the list.. hope you stuck to it... minus the running.. unless you are running to the cake shop.

  8. What a lovely day I've had! The only thing I didn't do was order needlepoint supplies, which is ok because I have more needlepoint stuff than I could ever ever use. I didn't browse long in the bookstore, but I did pop in. And I had a pop in visit from Gracie's favourite uncles! Perfect, perfect day!
