My bday. 
BIG 60!
I am kicked back at 11 am doing
It is FREAK'N CoLd outside
and I have elected to not doing
any moving. 

This afternoon my younger brother
Mark and sis in law Kim are taking
me to happy hour at Ruth Chris....
Never been but when I told
people that I was going they
were this should
be really nice. 

I am heading out in a bit
to have the truck washed and 
cleaned. Although it is cold
out it is not RAINING ☔☔...
FINALLY. Days and days
of rain. Actually as of 
yesterday Nashville has taken
on 10 inches of rain since Jan 1.
Now I know 10 inches of water don't 
sound like much but 10 inches in 
a cubic foot in a river can make
a big difference. Today SUNSHINE.

From the car wash to the post office
to mail a couple of items. I have
a letter to my friend in NJ and a 
card for a friend that lives here 
whom lost her mom last week. 
I am really big at doing that for
people now cause in getting
cards from friends when Mom
past made me feel better. 

Also, stopping by the cemetery
to drop off flowers. Although
I put flowers out for mom and 
day for Vday I have special
live flowers for mom. A few
years ago I started taking mom
flowers on my bday and telling
her Happy Bday. The first time
she said, its not my bday....and
I then told her that she BIRTH
me on this day so Happy
BIRTHday. I took her some 
last yr and I will continue to 
do that. 
Pic of those will come tomorrow.

Speaking of tomorrow I will
take more stuff to the house.
Had hoped to move all this
weekend but with all the rain
last week I got little done. Plus,
I am holding off on that till the
quick deed is done and the house
is in my name. I am going 
to also start taking smaller
pieces  of furniture that will
fit in the SUV.

I have been overwhelmed in 
a good way today with the 
messages I have gotten on 
FB for Bday wishes. I love
my cyber friends that I know 
but never met. I love my old
high school friends that I have
reconnected with years ago 
thanks to FB. I love all my 
blogging friends that I also
know but never met, cause
they have been right there
with encouraging words
this past yr. I love my family
and I am very blessed.

It was like Lily knew this was
a special day cause she crawled
up on my chest and gave me
lots of loving this morning. 
You can see that on the 
furbabes blog 

With all the growing that Nashville
is doing we tend to see a lot of
things like this. The roads are
being dug up here and there
to lay more water lines, 
improve water lines...and 
so much more.

But for years this has always been
Nashville's State Flower!!

Traffic Cones - 18", Orange - ULINE - Qty Of 2 - S-7877O
And I am sure it will cont to
be our state flower for awhile
to come!

Actually do you know, without
googling it, what Tennessees
state flower is? Do you know 
what your state, city or countrys
flower is?

This is Tennessees
state flag.

Middle TN and East TN.

Best wishes, birthday gal! :) I wanted to say Ohio's flower is the carnation. To my surprise, I was right (scarlet carnation dianthus caryophyllus). It remains my favorite fragrance, whatever the petal color. Take care and enjoy dinner. I like the fact my B-day is tomorrow (also that of my first love, funny enough). That way, we tend to have whatever restaurant to ourselves versus on V-day. Heh...

On one's Birthday, I *think* one should only do, what one wants to do.

Just to put 60, in perspective, my Birthday next month, will be my 83rd!!!!

Seeeeeeeee???? Didn't that put your 60, in a nicer light???? >,-)

Happy birthday.

(The principal at the school I was at yesterday's birthday is today, also. They had a cake for him.)

Our state flower in California is the California Poppy. In the spring when the hills come alive with them... Yeah, we know our flower. The others? I'd have to look them up.
