Birthday Me-Day

One should not work
on the day of their birth.
So I'm not!
I have the whole day off!

And since I ate the cake below, last night
at Boston Pizza when
my hubby and son took me out,
I am starting my day off
with the celebratory
birthday
morning grapefruit above.


While it is sometimes a bit depressing
turning another year older,
the alternative is not what I want!

I do know that getting older
is an experience that
many people are denied.
Very true indeed.

So with that,
BRING IT ON AGE 45!!!

HAPPY BIRTHDAY
to me!

I hope you have a most enjoyable day!
I know I'm going to!

Happy Birthday to Yoooouuuuuu! :)

I did 45 2 years ago--it is a breeze. Okay, so parts sorta stop working right on the old bod, but with that also comes wisdom of the years and confidence in being you. It's all good.

Wish you the best on your birthday straight through to the next one. Enjoy your day off. :)

Happy, Happy Birthday, Catherine; we are the same age, I will be 45 in October...It's hard to believe I'm that old because I still think and feel a lot younger=it's when I need my glasses to read or listen to someone under 25 that I realize my age!!...We are not getting older, honey, just better with age, like a fine wine...I'm so much more comfortable with myself, (my mind and body) now and appreciate life in a way I never did in my 20's or even most of my 30's, so life's good...You are a lovely, smart lady with a beautiful family=enjoy your day and keep celebrating over the weekend!!

Dear Catherine,

I would like to wish you a Happy Birthday and all the very best.

I agree with Donna who states you are just a spring chicken, because things certainly look different when you get to be my age. So go out there and enjoy yourself.

Warmest regards,
Egmont

Happy Birthday Catherine! I didn't see you on Innsite on Friday so you must be hiding your birthday from your non-blog-reading co-workers...LOL You are a great person who deserves a super great birthday!!!

Jaime said...

Oh Happy Birthday Catherine! I'm sorry I am a few days late. I really want to take a chunk out of that cake...but it looks so scrumptious, I bet you didn't leave a single crumb behind. I wouldn't have!
Your morning sparkling grapefruit had me laughing. Very cute.
I hope your day off was indulgent.
Much love xo
