Birthdays and such

Today my youngest granddaughter became one year old.  Kimia is getting to be a girl with some character.  And mobility.  And size – over 27 lbs last I heard. Tomorrow we are going to her house to celebrate this significant milestone.

But tonight, I was participating with the Prince Albert Strings inour local music festival.  We did fairly well – 87 and 89 in our catagory.  I think we did well for a group that went from a  fairly experienced group last year to a group of near novices.  These songs were simpler than what we attempted last year but I think Dean, our conductor, was pleased.

Kimia has her big party tomorrow but my big day is approaching.  Saturday.  60 years.

It has occurred to me that this is a fairly long time.  As the span of life goes it is likely at least 2/3 of my allotted days.

So, maybe to keep me thinking I am young, my hubby bought me this nice new little computer.  At least it has given me a new toy to play with and try to get all up to date and get files transferred over and all those little chores.  I have no pictures on this baby yet.  So bear with me.  They will come.

And this one is little.  I chose a little one for ease of transport – a 13 inch screen and only 4.6 lbs.  I think it will fit nicely into my purse actually.  Another Toshiba because I like their durability.

So, life goes on.  Birthdays or no birthdays.

I wonder if it will take all my life to figure it all out and come to terms with who I am and what I really need to be about.  I think that maybe now and then I see shadowy glimpses of the person I might be becoming but then I stumble back to the reality of me and everyday life.  Sometimes I just get lost and lonely even at 60.  But I know that overall,  I have been blessed and am glad that my life has, for the most part, been full of interesting challenges and opportunities.
