Today is my B-day!

hehehe I just can't help myself telling everybody that today is my birthday. I just love them, specially mine. I'm the kind of person who would tell the dog on the street about my B-day only to hear a happy Bark back! LOL

Oh well, Now I'm a 39 year-old lady. What about it? Though my face starts to show some wrinkles (wh? why? why?), I still feel the same, my body still works like before, my mind is still sharp - hmm this is controversial... I'm a completely distracted person in the streets and my 10 pairs of built-in arms and legs eventually get loosen, which means I'm not good in crowded shops with delicate stuff, but I have always been like that... So while time knocks at my door... I have fun with my family!

Rodrigo and Lucas (he was anxious to give me my gifts since last night!) gave me two great books: Our GG in Havana, by one of my favorite authors, Pedro Juan Gutiérrez, a Cuban writer whose sharp, dry and dirt style I love; and The Solitaire Mystery, by Joisten Gaarden, another favorite of mine, with opposite style. I'm gonna devour them! Rodrigo knows how much I love getting books as gifts, although I love anything from him ...

When I got home for lunch time, they had prepared a special capeletti for me with natural tomato sauce, champignon and Toscana basil (from our herb garden!)... It was so delicious (I was blessed with a husband wo really knows how to cook and loves it) that I repeat it three times!! Oh gods... my waist... bah, today everything is allowed... or should be.

Now I'm here counting the minutes to leave from work, so I can go home to meet my little pack. An old friend of mine, an old lady I just love, will go there for a b-day hug. Later, we'll go have dinner out, me and my men, just the three of us. It's the perfect celebration for me... See you all tomorrow!

I am so sorry I missed your birthday! Bad Suzie! That makes you Gemini right? Oh no wonder we get along, I'm Aquarius. I love that you shout to the world it's your birthday, I do the same thing. So much fun. Happy birthday to you! I hope it was a good one.

Happy, Happy (belated) Birthday, Nydia! I hope your whole day was wonderful and that you get to continue the celebrating throughout the whole weekend!

My 39th year was a wonderful year, full of love, growth and friendship-- I hope your 39th will be filled with heaps of the same.
