oh my ! what would I ever do without her sweet cheeks - Miss Winn

Today is my birthday. Honestly, if anything, I woke up with a bigger catch in my throat and that feeling like big moths are living in my stomach. Sometimes it's easier said than done, this changing your thinking business. The chasing away of Ache & Tears, of Loss & Sadness. Just like so many things in life, In Theory it sounds easy. Practice, practice ...

I just googled if today is your birthday ? I'm a Cancer, through and through. Sensitive almost to a fault (although I do believe it's not possible to be too sensitive) - and that can make life feel hard at times. The Cancer profile in Elle magazine includes this sentence ...

"Oh, you’re a mystery, all right -
and sometimes an amazing collection of moods".

and proud of it, I might add. Wink.

from the New York Post - July 7, 2008 - if today is your birthday

You already possess all the qualities you need to succeed in life, but the harsh truth is you have not been using them to any great extent. The cosmic picture on your birthday urges you to stop drifting and start driving yourself towards a worthwhile goal.

And today, Debbie (mother of Winnie's best girlfriend and Golden Retriever - Maggy Sue) is taking me to town, out to lunch and on a big provisions shop, The Farm Store (stock up on kitty litter & dog treats) and The Atlantic Superstore - my fav.

One way to this girl's heart is a trip to town, and especially a trip where I don't have to drive. Smile.


  1. Happy Birthday! Best Wishes for Joy and Happiness.

  15. hey,
    you guys are all so sweet ... just arrived home from a lovely shop and lunch in town and found all these nice comments. Merci.

    It's a scorcher here today ... I'll unpack the provisions and I think I'll lie in the hammock, cause it's way to late in the day to be beginning anything substantial, it's really hot and ... it is my birthday.

    Thanks again for all lovely birthday wishes.

    ps. This blog's birthday, 1 year old (a post or two every single day) is July 13th. Stayed tuned for a new give away in honour of this anniversary.
