What do Beethoven, Jane Austen, Gary P., Tarang J., MaryAnn, Anthony and I all have in common? All hellbent Sagittarians, celebrating birthdays around now. I'm in good company as I welcome in my 73rd today.

Last evening Handsome Son came over complete with ingredients and tools to cook us both a terrific Birthday Eve dinner, he not being available today, and I provided a small chocolate cake. All was devoured in short order, and to candlelight provided by tealights in the fireplace, much easier than a fire going, we had a great time talking and watching Parks and Recreation, a sitcom I can't think how I missed first time around, too funny.

I plan on loafing today. And looking around idly and thinking of what to plant next season and watching the birds showing up for their meals on the patio. And reading Hunger Games and Indigo. And watching a DVD of Monk. And other such demanding plans.

All is just fine with my world!

Testing, testing, to see why people have had trouble posting comments. Emails tell me so!

Hippo, hippo birdies to you Liz. I'm glad you have a lovely "you" day planned and all things are right in your world for your special day.

Happy Birthday! I read Hunger Games too, but decided to rename it "Food Fight". Entertaining, if a bit vapid. Fun for a day when one is just languishing around enjoying life, as it should be.

Love and hugs.

Happy birthday day to you! A day spent lolling about doing just what you fancy is a perfect way to celebrate.
