Birthday,Christmas Tree,Eggs,Oh My!

     

             Dec 1st was my birthday. I turned 39! I'm really not sure how I feel about this. It feels odd to say that I am now very very close to turning 40..which if you can hear the voice in my head,you'd think I was telling you all I was about to take my final walk out to pasture and would be calling it a day after that. I find I have a hard time dealing with the whole number factor because I never see myself as being 39 or 40 or 50. I'm just me..and so far, I'm doing alright. Last year I posted about my BIG weight loss..So this year, I have another big announcement: Daisy my delightful hen,laid her very first egg..on the morning of my birthday. Does it get any dang cooler then that?
                                 
 
            Isn't it cute?? It was tiny and perfect..and she has laid one every day since. She is one of those proud hens..which means she squawks at the top of her lungs..and let me tell you, that is one of the most unladylike sounds you could ever possibly make. It's going to get really loud when all 7 decide to lay at the same time.
                   
           

                          As part of my birthday we always decorate the christmas tree. I've been doing that for so long that I can't imagine not having that tradition. We put the christmas music on and take a trip down memory lane with each bulb and personalized ornament we unwrap.
                      


              I was also able to finally buy LED colored lights. I can't begin to tell you how happy that made me. I've only been able to buy white lights here and dearly missed the colored lights. I actually jumped up and down in the store when I saw them. I wake up early each morning and come downstairs and turn them on right away. I drink my coffee while sitting in front of the tree and listening to christmas music. I can't think of a better way to start the morning..
