Happy Birthday 2019

When one has a birthday I think they need to pick some favourite things to celebrate - all the month long.

Yesterday DH and I had a 'day out' travelling up the Fraser Canyon to visit favourite places. That was Day 1

Day 2 (today) DS and DGS gave me a smoothie maker - and we plan to have cake with our supper.

I gifted myself with a 5 week online journaling course  Write your Heart's Desire 2. Exploring thoughts, thinking about what the future me would thank me for, writing things down. Making time for me to dream, think, consider, plan, record.

My promise to me is to pay more attention to taking care of me; to laugh, to smile, to hug, to continue my daily walks, to eat mindfully. 

The Fitbit that was my Mother's Day gift this year has been fun - it reminds me to drink water, get out and move, sleep enough.

I planted flowers in my front yard planter boxes and they are doing well.

I am grateful that DGS is keeping the front and back lawns mowed this year. Replacing the lawnmower made the job smoother.

Recovering from a car accident takes hard work and time and I have learned to cherish what I have and I am grateful for my blessings.

Thank you dear ones for visiting today.


I looked back in time and found I had written birthday posts since 2011: June 2/11 post, June 1/12 post, June 2/13 post, June 2/14 post, June 2/15 post, June 2/16 post. June /17 post, June /18 post


  1. Happy, happy birthday, sister dear!

  2. Sounds like a lovely bunch of experiences. Happy Birthday!!

  3. I thought I posted a comment but will try again. Car accidents take a toll on us even weeks after the actual incident. You must rest. Happy Birthday!

  4. Happy happy birthday!! And I hope your recovery is complete and soon. :)
    Lovely idea to celebrate all month.

  5. Happy Belated Birthday. Wishing you a speedy and full recovery.
    Your flowers are gorgeous; especially them peonies. I love peonies but unable to grow them here in Texas; rhubarb as well, both of which I miss since moving from Iowa.
    Enjoy your day; make the most of it and have a wonderful week.

  6. I strongly recommend that birthdays go on for as long as possible. It should be the law haha. Looks like you made the most of yours.

  8. Happy birthday. Your first name is a beacon toward happiness, and I like your vase very much. I have a photo on my blog today of yellow roses from my garden in a blue vase.

  9. Happy birthday and love that you are enjoying life. Every day is a gift.


Thanks for visiting. I read and appreciate all your comments. Joy
