Today’s my birthday. I use to wait for my birthday with heavy anticipation. Over the last couple of years, I’ve lost that sense of excitement. It’s just another day. This morning I got up and took my shower and got dressed, thinking normal thoughts. It wasn’t until I was through with my morning ministrations that I realized it was my birthday. My husband remembered, though, and wished me a happy birthday right away. He got a gift, which is sitting on the table staring at me. While my birthday may be just another day, I still enjoy getting presents.
One of the great things about my birthday is that the weather is unpredictable. I’ve even had snow on my birthday. This year, I get spectacular fall colors, which I’ve been admiring while I drive to work or run errands. There seems to be an especially large range of leaf colors this year, from spring green through burgundy. Last Monday I played with my scanner, scanning various objects. Toward the end of the day, I had moved on to rocks and leaves. As I see the bursts of color in the vegetation around me, I wonder how certain leaves would scan, if their colors would remain true. I’ll be trying some of them later.
Time to help Hubby with dinner.
(And still I wonder what’s in the gift bag.)
