Today was my celebration day, yup it was my Birthday LOL. I am another year older, not sure about the wiser 😏.
It was a very peaceful day, which started with breakfast with my daughter. It was a relaxed meal as neither of us had to run off for work, so we got to enjoy the meal and catch up. After we went for a spot of shopping before we went our separate ways.
The afternoon was spent with another daughter wandering through stores just looking. I had a few small things that I needed to pick up but the rest of the time we just snooped. There are so many things new that to me seem redundant. It seems there are a lot of companies that produce products to make our lives easier. Most of the 'gadgets' I saw today, I found a waste of money. I think easier is equivalent to spend more and get more clutter. The cost of a 'gadget' to cube garlic was ridiculous. I good sharp knife, which has numerous uses, would do the job better and probably faster.
By the end of the afternoon, we were both hot and sticky. It was a very humid day. Even though we had plans on what to make for supper, take out was the winner. We found chicken and wedge potatoes that fit the bill perfectly.
The end of the day was celebrated with a small chocolate cake and ice cream. No big bands. No fussy parties. No entertaining that usually causes a big mess to clean up. Just a simple meal followed by a gateau and ice cream.
Tomorrow starts a new year of highs and lows. (We need to lows to recognize the highs). I don't know what the year will bring but it will arrive day by day. I guess how we deal with each day will make the year interesting. It will also add to the chapters of the novel we each write with our lives.
