|Ann Fahl, April 11, 2012 a landmark birthday|
I've had a lovely day, we had special cookies at coffee this morning, lunch with a friend, it is sunny outside, and tonight we are going out for ice cream. We will have a family celebration with my sons this weekend. But somehow, I feel I should be old today!

|Doronica, a shade loving plant is blooming much earlier this year. When all the buds open it will be full of bright flowers.|
|The May Apples are just about open, even though the temperature got to 28 degrees last night.|
|And look at the hyacinths that are blooming in my front yard.|
I was 29 years old for many many years. Five years ago, I had my 30th birthday, and I've been 30 ever since. But to be really honest, I'm not 30 anymore. My son is 30! I should feel very old today.
I feel so many conflicting feelings, but to be truthful, I don't feel old. I've just finished a great quilt; starting another, the master gardener classes have been fun and informative, life is good I don't have any compaints.
Yesterday I took my Silver Mist Toyota Camry in for her 90,000 mile checkup. This was an expensive proposition, with new timing belt, serpentine belt, fluid changes, tires rotated and on and on. When all was completed, I thought Misty and I could ride off into the sunset together! But I've had a change of heart, we are driving to Paducah together instead. Hope to see you there.
Age 30 years.
