They arrive annually whether we want them to or not. This is my cake for one. Most of my birthdays are spent alone. Not that I care. I take myself to dinner and have a good book to read with my good food.
This morning, however, something special happened. There was a knock on the condo door and a delivery man was there.

He had the above package for me with a card from the night manager at the front desk. I have not seen her for a year. It was nice to be remembered. We had talked in the wee hours this morning because my computer service kicked off. 

I had tons of well wishes from friends and family. Those always brighten my day. Several people called. So, I am never really alone. I also got a text or two. 

I don't care how old I am anymore. Age is just a number. Some days I feel like I'm 102, other days I feel like I'm 17, and still others I feel like I'm where I should be. 

It was a great day. I walked on the beach. Met a woman staying in one of the villas. Took myself to dinner. Ordered chicken nachos and had enough to bring home for dinner tonight. Had a drink....hate that the bar feels they must water their drinks. I don't drink much and I know my limits. Bought the cake and a small ice cream on the way home. Nice peaceful evening. 

Thanks to all those who made an effort to wish me well.


  1. Happy Birthday to you! I enjoyed reading your post, and I look forward to reading more. You are on my RSS - Not sure what that means, but I guess I must be following your blog. May you have a great year!

  2. Darlene, thank you. Glad to have you on board.

  3. Happy Birthday, Rebecka. Your day actually sounds lovely. Hope you're enjoying South Carolina weather. I agree, the years don't matter anymore. It's just a matter of enjoying where you are.


  4. Thank you, Hope. It was a wonderful day. I love the low country and will be heading home to get my home ready for the market.


Welcome to the New Year, New Life

I have moved from my home in South Carolina back to Michigan. It is currently under contract. Sorry no photo of my current residence. ...
