Today is my 57th birthday.  I've been sitting here in my bed watching the sky change as the sun rises.  I feel grateful to be alive.  Life is good.  Not too much drama.  My kids are okay.  I'm in love with my family and friends and I'm pretty sure they love me back.  What else could I ask for?

RAIN!!!!!!! That's what I'm asking for:  RAIN.
It's almost always raining on my birthday.  It's hard to dispute scientific evidence regarding climate change, but I just need to hide my head in the sand and believe that the rain will come back and that this is just a fluke.  February will be wetter, I tell myself.
So, in lieu of gifts, please send rain.

In lieu of rain, Julie gave me one of her needle felted animals.  He shares many of my interests like spinning, drinking coffee, and acrylic paint.
