Good morning gentle readers, as I'm sure you can see I've changed my blog around again. I just couldn't handle the fake lighthouse so I went and found a real one. What do you think?
Today we will be celebrating my birthday which, unfortunately I couldn't do on Earth Day like I wanted to. We will have fun, we will have food and drinks, we will socialize. And I know it's Monday but for some strange reason I lost a day last week so I couldn't post this on Friday.
However, before we get started with the frivolities, I want to ask you, did you plant something green for Earth Day? As you know, or may not, Earth Day was founded in 1970 by Sen. Gaylord Nelson. He gave me my own holiday! Okay, maybe not, but what he did was create a day, to celebrate the Earth. In Native American tradition, Mother Earth doesn't belong to us, we belong to her. If we don't have her, then we don't have anything. We must protect her, and cherish her, and keep her alive. Because if we don't, bad things will happen. Look at the ozone, look at the volcanoes, look at the hurricanes. These things are happening because we pollute the air with our cars, and planes, and factories. (I don't even want to talk about the oil spill in the gulf.) We must help her to recover. It may not be done in our lifetime, but at least for the sake of our grandchildren, we must do all that we can NOW, to make a better tomorrow. So please, please, please, go plant something. Conserve the water when you brush your teeth, recycle, re-use, reduce. Every little bit helps.
Okay, I'm off my soap box, let the festivities begin.
First, here's where we'll be celebrating. It's quaint and I'd like it to be my home. Especially the kitchen.
Here's a picture of the back yard. I finally have twinkle lights. Pretty.
Here's what we'll be eating. I made everything myself.
Drinks are by the pool. Remember, keep your suits on until 9pm. The water's great.
This is my date. Isn't he just a dream? In more ways than one.
So, I want you all to have the best time. Frolic, eat, drink, be merry. And contrary to what DL might have told you, you are not required to help build the fence! I finished the fence this weekend and pictures will be forthcoming.
Oh yes, and feel free to guess my age. I wish I could give a prize to the winner, or maybe you'll all guess I'm really 32. Hee Hee. Have a lovely time at my party, I know with my date, I definately will.
