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.
