I swung by the grocery store for dinner salad fixings (oy! must get back on track STAT!) and to get the watchband adjusted, only to get home and discover that one of the diamonds edging the face of the watch was missing. Wah! Well, I got to wear it for about half an hour before returning to the store to drop it off for repairs. It will be back Friday so that's not so bad.
Martin and I went for a good walk in the sunshine, across the neighborhood and up the hill, past the junkyard and down the gravel road through the stubbled fields. All the wheat and hay and straw and rapeseed has been harvested in the past 2 weeks, leaving the golden fields bare brown dirt speckled with rather sad-looking stalks. We admired the growing sugar beet plants in other fields and the little lakes in the distance and the late-summer poppies, and scared two big hares that were oblivious to our approach for quite some time.
A million birthday wishes on Facebook, and love via e-mail, e-card, cards in the mail, phone calls and big hugs: what more could I possibly need to know that my friends and family wish me well? Thank you so much to everyone who made my special day even more special. 29 looks like it will be ANOTHER good year! :D hahaaaa!
Big Boy Birthday Wishes to e11en's Anders!
