My Birthday Celebration

Eldest daughter, Dana, and I drove to Ventura to the home of a cousin I haven't seen for years. His wife had invited me to speak to her women's group at a luncheon. Once we got there, I learned I was the speaker for their monthly "cultural event." That made me chuckle a bit.

After a delicious lunch, I spoke about my writing from the days of childhood when my imagination led to some pretty big stories (lies), to the writing I did back then and when I was raising my family, the books I've written, and what the adventures and experiences I've had because I'm a writer.

That evening, hubby and I, Dana and her hubby all drove to Camarillo to youngest daughter's home. She and her hubby made a delicious dinner of salmon and steak, corn on the cob, mashed potatoes, veggie platter, and of course, chocolate cake and ice cream. My youngest granddaughter, Alyssa, who is 17 and very much on the go, actually stayed home to help her grandma celebrate. It was the perfect ending to a wonderful day.

And that's how I celebrated my birthday!
