Today is my 46th birthday and I'm spending most of it by myself, which is a treat actually as my entire family, whom I haven't seen in over a year, will be arriving in Alberta tomorrow evening to spend a few days celebrating my eldest daughter's high school graduation. This morning I'll be getting a temporary henna tattoo on my ankle by a lovely, lovely lady and then I'll spend the rest of the day reading and painting. A perfect day. Though I'm sorry to say I've developed a sensitivity to matcha tea, too much caffeine for my sensitive body, so I'll have to find a new favorite. I feel grateful for so much...

Thanks Roxanne - and this past week we celebrated my daughter's graduation and then we will celebrate her 18th birthday, both happy and sad for me. Life is good, though, and I feel blessed.
