Awoke to a birthday greeting text. Got quite a few calls from long-time friends, a couple of Facebook posts from surprising quarters of the earth.
Spent the morning with a 2-hour massage in my house. Massage was from a friend at a birthday gift price of only $40!! Then we went swimming.
Afterwards, I went to spend my birthday money at Mama's Minerals, a fav hangout of mine. You'd be surprised how long I can spend time there. And this time I had money to spend! Yay!
Spent rest of afternoon buying things for a party that I'm throwing this Saturday in celebration of my birthday. Evening was spent beginning to polish rocks with my newly purchased tumbler and preparing gifts to give to people at the party.
