Yesterday was my birthday, leaving me under one year to complete my 40x40 list. It's an "accomplishable list," as my sister said, but I'm starting to fret a bit, asking myself, "When? When? When?" again and again. The good news is that I'm off Diet Coke, I've started the Couch to 5K program and I've pretty much figured out my new camera. I whipped up a chunky scarf, in green, with the expectation I could wear it on my birthday, but it turned out to be a beautiful, short-sleeves type of day, so I wore the scarf only long enough to take a photo. Kudos to all of you who can take your own photo using a mirror. I ended up with about 10 shots of the ceiling or moulding before my sister asked to end the misery and take the picture for me.
The scarf is longer than it looks. With all of the photo adjustments, it got pulled over to one side, making it look really short in the photo. Also, I forgot to wear makeup, so posting this marks a brave moment.
This cupcake has my name all over it. Literally.
From a birthday gift to myself, this makes me laugh:
For those keeping score, three and a half things down, 36.5 more to go before turning 40.
