I've been asked...what was my birthday like? Not what I expected!
The not so nice but still a blessing is that the electrician came today to put in a new breaker box and fix the wiring in the house. We didn't have power for 8 hours...but the wiring is safer. We will have to wait until spring when they can come in with a trencher to get power back out to the outbuildings.
It looks as though we may have lost the majority of our bees this winter. It's been a really.really hard winter. But we will see once it warms up. Supposed to be mid 50s later this week!
Cooked my own birthday dinner...but fixed my favorite...Chicken Chimichangas. YUM!
Had a beautiful message on my cell phone from my Mommy! She sang me Happy Birthday. I'm such a sap it made me cry!
Found out that two of the scrapbook stores that I have recently been to (and they gave no indications while there) went out of business in the first week of February. But a Hobby Lobby opened up where I drive at least 3 times a week.
Then, the "heathens" I work with threw me a birthday party! I've been making brownies or cake for various friends at work and they all decided to pay it back. One brought brownies, another brought me a planter with flowers, another my favorite kind of cookies, another punch, yet another brough 4 kinds of chips and 2 different dips and 2 bottles of pop! Finally one slipped me a dollar and said he wanted to treat me to a snack in the vending machine but didn't know my favorite. How's that???
Even when things aren't great...it's all in how you look at it. I was made to feel very special in a place where I like to be the least. Things are flipped around crazy right now and I'm trying to make sense of it all. Personally, in the areas that I should feel confident and loved...I don't see it. So, I realize this is a crazy post, but I'm confused and trying to sort it out.
I see my blessings...but right now things that I felt were the blessings in my life, have had some of the glimmer rubbed off and the banes of my life today became a joy. Hmmm...
I can't say I have my health...I've had some serious issues come up in the last 30 days (besides the sinus infection). I do have my family, but after being in the house for 11 days, I think they need to see less of me. (grin). In recent weeks, I've disconnected from many of the people, things, and activities that I hold dear. And I miss them...but.....
