Grandma Gets Star Status

My own personal Barn star...I have always wanted one.
Em found it in the country part of far East Portland...purchased from the artist himself.
I am so thrilled

Smiling as I say good-bye to 71.
Happy Birthday to me...Born in Boston in a snow storm...Ha!..
Proud to say..that here in Charlotte, my storm still brews at 72!!!!
Evan made my cake.
 Lynsey tried to put 72 candles on the cake, but we did not have that many
and our fire extinguisher is out of date!!!
The children were absolutely thrilled with my new present!!
I am the luckiest person in the world
Had a lovely visit with Linda today...She brought me new scissors.
I just love funky little pretty scissors!!!

Tons and tons of emails and texts came my way...friends from near and far.
Presents tonight were notes of endearment from my son and my grands.
And, Lynsey...dear Lynsey put all the notes in a  little box, wrapped it in fabric from my
stash, just like granddaddy used to do...Heart felt and loving.

I took myself to a Chinese lunch.
Returned books to the library where the man waived my late fees for the holidays.
And bought myself a bottle of red wine.
Seven days to Christmas, but for me...Christmas is here already.
