Early Celebrations

I went out for a mile walk at 11 pm tonight in order to work off the piece of birthday cake and scoop of ice cream I had after supper. While I was out there I got to admire the bright crescent shape moon, the stars and the beam of Northern Lights dancing across the sky. Beautiful!

What a fun evening. Some friends took me out for supper and after supper they came to our place so we could have some of the birthday cake they baked for me. I also got to open some early birthday gifts - even one from friends in Quebec. What a fun evening with lots of laughs. I feel very spoiled but I can take it!

It was an early birthday get together as I leave in the morning to go spend a few days with my girls. First a stop in Edmonton to see my oldest daughter, then on to High River to see my other two daughters and all my grandchildren of course. Looking forward to seeing everyone.

Plus, as a bonus, I get to see my sister who is flying in from Kelowna and landing in Edmonton on Thursday morning. We will spend the evening together and I will make the remainder of my journey to High River on Friday morning and make the 8 hour drive back on Sunday.

A quick short visit and a busy time. It will be tiring but lots of fun too.

Oh, I almost forgot. I also got a letter in the mail from my youngest grandson Finnley.
