Mirthday Meanderings!!



Yes it is true...sadly.... another Year Older and Deeper in Debt! Unbelievable amounts of Gray Strands are popping in all over my head (Richard strongly urges me not to 'make them go away') ...I think the words "Look distinguished " was bantered about... isn't distinguished a word that was used for an elderly high school science teacher with leather elbow patches on his coat and the smell of stale pipe tobacco hanging in the air as he passed you in the hallway??? I am confused!!


I was 'hatched' at 5:37 am 58 years ago...and my Mother (who is now 86) claims that each year since at that exact time wakes from a sound sleep and remembers the pain.... geesh! no guilt there!!! My precious doggie ' Tess La Rue' is a rescue doggie and we could only guess at her Birthday...but we did narrow it down to sometime in March (info. from her first owners)...sometime I will tell you about her story...WOW!!! Sorry, I digress...old people do that!! Anyway...our wonderful Vet here in town said..."Let's give her Your Birthday Date"... geesh, I can do that...how cool is that... so today Miss Tessie and her Mom are sharing 'Mirth' ...so far this early morning she had her 'Extra' Pup-A-Roni's ...and I am having a cup of yesterday afternoons coffee warmed up....Richard still sleeps.....HEY!!!!!!!!! isn't the Mirth Girl supposed to 'stay in bed'...what gives here????


Breakfast this morning with my Mom out at our fav pancake joint...where I am sure she will talk about the pain she remembers over blueberry pancakes.

I was supposed to be painting on my 'M' day..but I jumped the gun and got it done by this day...just a few more things to put away... and then settling down to work while catching whiffs of the faint fragrance of remodeling.


Nothing special planned for this day... other than a possible sit in the tipi this evening....ahhhh relaxation.

I have always used this day to reflect on past Mirthdays ...from very early childhood to now... memories are always the best gifts...for they last forever, you never out grow them... and they never wear out.

Hello Sister Piscean ... I happened on your blog through another Piscean, Sherry ... then WOW ... It's your born day ... the same day as mine ... it only took 61 years for me to connect with someone else with the same Mirthday as you call it ... I love that expression & your blog ... so many happy returns ... Cal

Happy Birthday Jodi. And what a lovely cake with the webs on. Now that would be my favourite cake.
I wouldnt worry about the grey bits. I too have those and although i have my hair coloured from time to time i'm rather play in my craft room than look 18 again. Mind you 18 was a perfect age with nice glossy hair.
NEVER MIND! It happens to all of us at some point.
How sweet to share your birthday with Tess La Rue and what a lovey name.
Have fun in your titi. How nice to have a tipi. When i was all but a girl i'd pinch my mums linen and build one with all the kids in the street. This involved kitchen knives at the ready to chop down branches and lots of pegs pinched off washing lines. Such Fun.
Happy Birthday!

Hi Nikki...

Naw...the gray does not bother me to much...although when I did put a rinse on (red color as it is my fav) ...all my grays looked like hundreds of strands of copper wiring... really lovely I thought...but alas...silver overrides copper and wins out in the end.
You childhood sounds very much like mine...always building forts in the yard...clean sheets from the line was my favorite covering...
Thanks so much for the Birthday Wishes

Jodi

Jodi said...

Thanks so much Jayne...and I agree with the Men and Old Teachers theory.
Very Little guilt was dumped...but 'pain' was slipped in there....
Breakfast was lovely!

Jodi, hope you had a great birthday!! I really enjoy reading your posts. Have you ever written a book or anything, if not you should.

Jamie

Jodi said...

Hi Jamie...

Thank you so much for the Birthday Wishes...my day was absolutely Swell beyond words...
Thank you too for such kind remarks about my Blog Writings...
I have never written a book...just stories for our dolls, some poems etc...but it is one of my strong passions... started as a kid...I really didn't write stories done as much as 'spoke' them...I was always telling stories to other kids...I have a very active imagination...over active some might say...LOL!
I think that is why I like blogging so much.... it allows me to just say what I please and talk about this, that and the other...no rhyme or reason to my meanderings...just fun!
Thanks so very much for your kind words...made me day!

Jodi

my husband used to forge knives in our backyard. Now we live in an apartment so he cant anymore. I think he would find this to be an entertaining entry.

Hi Jodi,

HAPPY BIRTHDAY ADVENTURES ALL MONTH LONG!

OK, I did give you Early Birthday Greetings & even a Jodi Special Tribute on my blog but I still feel sad I didn't get a chance to swing by on your exact Birthdate. :(

Since you're a Pisces, I know you had a great day. Pisces always have a great adventure on their birthdays even when it's just relaxing at home.

One of my cats share my birthday too. I wish I looked as good as my cat on our birthdays, LOL!!!

HUGS WITH LOT'S OF CHOCOLATE BIRTHDAY CAKE...
Lyndy your fellow Piscean Sister

P.S. What wine goes with Chocolate Cake?

Jodi said...

Hello Lyndy ...My fellow Pisces Friend... turns out we have several 'Fishes' in this Blog Sea.....You are so right...I had a wonderful day...

I do believe that anything Red...specially a nice Zin goes with anything Chocolate...
OK...here is another of my favs... Fresh Strawberries...dipped in sour cream and then rolled in brown sugar.....YUM to the MAX!!!

Thanks again for all of your Birthday Wishes...

Hugs

Jodi

Jodi said...
