It put me in a pensive mode.
I've been thinking about aging, and life, and my goals, and whether I'm happy with where I am. The first week of a new year in my life. Firmly in or on the cusp of what they call "middle age." In general, I've decided I'm actually quite happy. Happier than I have any right to be. When I think about the millions of potential lives I could have been born into and lived, I feel very, very grateful for this one.
|E made dinner for my birthday -- Caprese from our garden with truffle oil and caviar.|
|My Junior Attorney took me out for Persian food lunch. So delicious!|
|The almost blue moon view from our Thursday night gathering of friends who come to us and BBQ was gorgeous.|
|A college girlfriend invited myself and another college girlfriend over for deviled eggs and farm fun. It had been 17 years since the three of us had last seen each other.|
|The host has gorgeous chickens.|
|Her egg storage had over 300 eggs. We barely made a dent.|
|Baby Goats are the cutest things!|
And with that, 1 week of a new year of my life is done. Voila.
