Good morning friends
Hope you had a peaceful nights rest.
Today is my 47’th birthday. I know the song goes “It’s my party, and I’ll cry if I want to…” But I changed the lyrics for today to “It’s my birthday, and I’ll do what I want to….” So after the cats fought at 3:00am and Lian my youngest son, who was streaming games the whole night, decided he was hungry and made himself a snack. I went to the kitchen to see what was going on. When Lian saw me he said Happy Birthday and he asked if I wanted a strawberry Milkshake. So in the middle of the night Lian and I drank strawberry milkshake and talked. It was the best way to start my birthday. “It’s my birthday, and I’ll do what I want to…” I went to bed and tried to fall asleep. Think I was on a sugar high from the milkshake. I did manage to fall asleep and woke up when Morné went to work at 6:00am.
Lian was still streaming at 6:30am when we started on a Peppermint Crisp Tart for my birthday. It has been a tradition in our household that on a persons birthday I will make them a Peppermint Crisp Tart as part of their Birthday present. I always loosed out but this year I decided I am making one for myself with the help of Lian. So before I had breakfast or even my first cup of coffee, I licked out the mixing bowl myself. “It’s my birthday, and I’ll do what I want to…”
On a more serious note I would just like to say thank you to my Heavenly Father for all the opportunities of the past 47 years. I am looking forward to all the new opportunities I am going to have in the coming year.
This morning it was nice and cool in the garden. Just a light breeze. According to the weather forecast on the Radio today it is going to be a whopping 38 Degrees Celsius. So for the remainder of the day I will be staying inside again. Will go out tonight when it’s cooler and spend some time in the garden reading.
Have a Blessed Wednesday and let’s all be grateful for this beautiful day full of new opportunities. If it is the end of your day be grateful for all the opportunities you had today. I wish you a peaceful nights rest.
