A Birthday Saturday

It is Saturday. Sun is dappling the trees outside and the birds are trilling their early evening songs and today is the first full day of being 54 years old. Fifty-four is such a strange number. Psychologically and emotionally I feel very much like I’m in my forties, or should be in my forties. In other words: I don’t feel old, or older in my head and heart, but my body feels ancient. I suppose this is what it should feel with having rheumatoid arthritis since a baby.

For birthday shenanigans The Husband and Marine took me out to my favorite steak house and I ate a good piece of meat and wanted a huge frozen margarita, but it was not to be: The place we were at was so packed and hectic I opted for a Coke instead. I will save my frozen margarita for my favorite Mexican place. And, I’ve decided my birthday will be celebrated longer than a single day because I can’t do everything I want to do in a single day or even a weekend. So, I am going to plan for doing something special each week for the remainder of August and possibly September since my Mommy’s birthday is in September and so is Sister One’s.

The Husband has gone beyond wonderful in the present department, too. He fed the geeky gamer in me and the intrepid writer. In the geeky gamer arena he gave me the Dungeons and Dragons Fifth Edition Players Handbook and Dungeons and Dragons Fifth Edition Dungeon Master’s Guide because I said I wanted to run a D&D game some time in the not-too-distant future. For the intrepid writer he gave me a Bluetooth keyboard for my Nook tablet! ::excited squee!::

I haven’t been able to settle down with the players’ handbook yet (it must come first), but the keyboard is charging as I type! Once it is nice and charged I will work on getting the keyboard and the Nook nice and friendly with each other.

Working away from home one day last week boosted the creative juices and, at the same time, gave me a breath of fresh air. This week there will be a couple of days of working away from home, thinks I. Getting out means relying on Box.com more than I’ve ever relied on the service because there is only so much storage space on my tablet. However, I am also thinking of downloading what is currently there onto the tablet if there isn’t any free wifi wherever I end up at on said ramble.

The keyboard is supposed to be back lit and is so lightweight I am considering getting another case just for it so it won’t get broken in my bag. I am also thinking of just simply changing to the writing bag full time for a while, or getting a new bag for writing and general use for consolidation purposes.

Now I am going to curl up with a nice book and relax for the remainder of my birthday weekend. Hope everyone out there is having a fantastic weekend!


About Henrietta Handy

I am a Kentucky mountain girl far from home, perhaps far from the girl years. I am an aspiring writer with a wonderful husband who puts up with this writing and reading addiction I have. He also puts up with all of the yarn and knitting. I have four canine children and a ton of friends I love dearly. I was diagnosed with rheumatoid arthritis at the age of 2 1/2 and have still managed to have a good life despite all the pain. So, I invite you to join me in this journey and just possibly have fun along the way.
