“It takes a long time to grow young.” – Pablo Picasso
Thank you so much to all of you who sent birthday greetings today — you really made my day! I’ve been a child of the Universe for 54 years as of 11:11 this morning…and most days, I feel as young as I did twenty years ago. In fact, I think with each year that passes, the number seems less and less significant. Which is what made me think of Picasso’s quote above — perhaps it really does take a long time to grow young!
The day was a quiet one with Charlie treating me to fresh Digby scallops for supper tonight — he cooked! We shared cake earlier in the day with my older daughter, and I look forward to talking to my younger daughter tomorrow. We plan a short visit with my parents tomorrow, as well.
My daughter brought me a gardening gift — a Seracon “Victorian Herb Garden”. I can’t wait to plant it. What a great gift idea! The three herbs included are borage, love-lies-bleeding, and lemon balm, so I’ve got some reading to do.
