Anyway, the birthday was lovely. I chose to postpone all celebrations until next week or next month, as I wanted to be able to finish the sewing and get the house ready for company in a leisurely and enjoyable fashion. Mindfully, as it were - no more "stash and dash" for me (I hope).
As for the wedding, well, October weather has taken an interesting turn. High on Saturday is suppose to be in the 50's. Don't know if anyone expected that - don't know if the ceremony will take place outside (as planned) or will have to be moved inside (as not-really-planned for). Pebbles and I talked over some plausible scenarios using the space and I think we can make it work, if it comes to that and I think it will. No one wants to see a shivering bride and bridesmaids in little strapless dresses with goosepimples. I swear it was a hundred degrees just the day before yesterday. Oh, and the chance of rain keeps increasing. I think they just need to call the whole outdoor ceremony and move the whole deal into the reception space. But, it's not my pig roast - I'm just the unpaid labor round here.
But tonight, the weather is perfect for being out-of-doors. I've been invited by Christine, one of my new biking buddies, to attend an event (fund-raiser) where her husband is playing lead guitar in the band! It's at a newish venue in town, so if my NY friend Rhoda, doesn't call me, then I'll go - and hell, maybe if Rhoda can get away from the business that brought her to town, we'll both go. Could be fun. Flexible like Gumby, I am. If I don't do that, then my plan is to do some flower arranging. One of my dear friends left a bunch of birthday gerbera daisies on my doorstep, so I think I'll create some floral arrangements using greenery from my yard and those daisies, along with some mums that are blooming, for a few pops of color. Now that is a fun way to spend an evening!
Take good care of yourself. Be kind to others. Transform yourself.
