My Favorite Way to Celebrate my Birthday! Not Counting Anymore!

I can’t believe that I am this old! Celebrating another birthday this year I will have my favorite meal – steamers, lobster and corn on the cob. I love seafood of any kind but this is my favorite combination. I’d rather eat this at home then go out to dinner.

Each day I wake up I feel fortunate that I am still here albeit with some daily aches and pains that nag but don’t kill me. I say ‘thank you, God, for another day on this earth.

I was thrilled to receive some roses from my thoughtful husband. What more could I ask for on my birthday – flowers and lobster?! Perfect! Life is good! Ha!

Birthday roses from my husband

Lobster & clam bake – yummy! Can’t wait to dig in!!! I love to eat them but I can’t watch them cook or even put them into the pan. My husband does that for me. Thank goodness! I’m a wimp!


I hope everyone out there who shares my birthday today will have a special day filled with love and all good things. Happy birthday to you!! 🎶 🎼 🎵

On this day I will do all the things that I like to do – write, write, write and of course read too! I will also do some tap dancing and hula hooping to keep the blood flowing and ease the aches, pains and stiffness of my old joints. Most of all I will spend the day with my wonderful husband.

Thank you so much for stopping by to read this post. Please come back again real soon. I hope you will have a lovely day today and every day. Stay safe and well. God Bless!

Thank you also for your kind support of me, my books and blog and for all the reviews you may have posted wherever my books are sold.

Blessings & Hugs! Stay Safe, Stay Well and God Bless!
