46 is...

46 is so much closer to 50 than 40
46 is middle aged only if you live to be 92
46 is vitamins, progressive lenses and hair dye
46 is grey hair in places that can't be dyed
46 is anti-wrinkle cream and age-spot remover gel
46 is body parts that seem to have a mind of their own
46 is the age I thought my mother was
46 is cottage cheese and fruit instead of chocolate cake
46 is better than not being 46
46 is the age I turn today

Happy Birthday, Catherine! From where I'm sitting middle-age goes all the way to 70 now, maybe even 75. BTW: You can dye hair... anywhere. :) Have a great weekend!

HubbleSpacePaws said...

Happy 46, Catherine!! And wishing you at least 46 more of sound mind and (relatively... heehee) sound body!

Have a great day and celebrate the changes... feeling way more comfortable in your skin at 46 than 26... the perspective you've acquired... you know... like that! They're really priceless gifts, well worth the grey and forfeited chocolate!

Happy Birthday, lovely Catherine=you are a beautiful woman and I hope you enjoy a wonderful, fun celebration with your family...Wishing you great health and tremendous joy in your personal new year!...We are the same age (I'll be 46 in Oct) and I can really relate to the hair dye and progressive lenses=these days, I dye my hair every 6 weeks and get stronger glasses every 6 months!...But, no real complaints=life is good!!...Kiss adorable Banjo for me!

Katy Noelle said...

Happy Birthday!!! Hmm, no more sitting on the 45 fence?

Cat, you are so beautiful and down to earth and funny - just a lovely woman!

I've heard the opinion that the most beautiful age of a woman is when she's in her 50s. She knows who she is and has the experience to really express and be herself. I argued that the most beautiful women that I knew were in their 60s+. Sorry! You and I are just young whipper snappers!

Hugs and kisses on this special day!!!

Love, Katy xo

Wishing you a very Happy Birthday Catherine! Some of your 46 year old events are happening to me at 42! Sending you lots of love and best wishes today and always!

Kea said...

Happy birthday, Catherine! 46 is all the more reason to have cake, IMO. Life is short and uncertain--truly--so don't spend your birthday eating (gag) cottage cheese. LOL.

Lots of hugs and Light for a wonderful day!

kittykye said...

Happy Birthday, Catherine!! I hope your birthday is warm and wonderful! :):)

Becca said...

Hey! Happy Birthday my friend! 46 is just a number right? Well, we're the same age...sort of, I turned 46 last November. :-) Have a lovely day, hope the sun is shining for you!

Betsy from Tennessee said...

Oh Catherine, You are just so darn YOUNG... You are younger than my oldest son, who was born on July 18, 1963.. GADS!!!!

Hope you have a wonderful day... AND--if you think you are old now, just wait 'til you are 68... YIPES...

Happy Birthday, my friend.
Hugs,
Betsy

Happy Birthday. I enjoyed your husband doing dishes at the smoker last night!!! Hope you spoils you today.

sharon said...

Happy Birthday...46 is the age I had my first grandchild. and he has been wonderful ever since. So is his sister. Have a great Day!!!

BumbleVee said...

Yes.....but, it is sooo much better than many years older...take it from me.

Many happy returns of the day Cat...... big birthday hugs..... from cold Calgary..... athough, they do say MOnday....may be quite a bit warmer..... we can only hope...

I think chocolate cake is more healthy for me....it has less cholesterol..... it doesn't?... why?...... what if I make it with margarine...and egg white?...

I don't have to worry about grey hair in places that can't be dyed....the hair on my head went platinum... and I just leave it now.... the hair on my legs and my underarms... just ..... disappeared....I'm not even sure when...okay...well, there is one exception...but, I have a razor...

Mary Ann said...

Happy Birthday to you. You are a very young looking 46, must be from all that cheese and fruit instead of chocolate cake ;)

Sarah Knight said...

Happy Belated Birthday!
I hope it was a fun one filled with happiness, cake, more cake, probably some adult beverages (or at least something fizzy) and family, oh, and the cat too!
:D

Linda R. said...

Happy Birthday to you my sweet friend.. I am even closer to 50 than you are. And yes I am wearing those progressive lenses and all the other wonderful items on your list.. You know that old saying. Getting old ain't for sissies. Any way we arn't that old yet....

RIGHT....

I think I am going to go have some Chocolate Cake for breakfast..

Hope you have a wonderful day!

Hugs and smiles..

Linda

Alisa said...

Happy Birthday!!

I love your post, I can relate to many of these. I like that you added 46 is better than not being 46. So true!

I like to remind myself that in 10 years I will look back at 44 and think, "what was I complaining about. Why didn't I appreciate 44!" Because I do that now with 34.

Hope you had a great weekend!

robynart said...

Hope you had a wonderful birthday Catharine, celebrating your 46 years. You're still just a baby, wishing you many more happy birthday celebrations, hugs Robyn. xxx

Lin said...

Happy Birthday, Catherine!!! I sure hope your special day was GREAT. :)

And just remember that whatever age you are, I am a year and a half older. Ugh.

Happy Birthday Catherine.
At 46, you are still young. :)

To your question in my blog as to where is everyone?
The other kitties were in their yard where Cinders was peeking from.
