B is for Birthdays #atozchallenge


It’s the first Monday in April – how are you doing? We finally have slightly warmer weather in Maine, above freezing at least. The sun has been out most of the day, and the snow is melting … again … after our April Fool’s Day snowstorm.

As I mentioned in my last post, I am participating in the A to Z Blog Challenge this month, posting on a topic each day except Sundays (excluding the final Sunday this month) for each letter of the alphabet.

Today’s topic is


If you follow my blog and are subscribed to receive blog posts, you may have noticed I missed posting the last few days of March. Here’s what happened: I had multiple deadlines with freelance work, and after not having work or income for about four months, I was quite happy to invest the necessary time into my work! (B is also for BUSINESS!) 😉  I also celebrated my 59th birthday on March 29th.

Then TODAY is my middle daughter Jen’s 30th birthday!

So What About You?


Do you or someone you know celebrate a birthday this month? If so, Happy Birthday! 🙂

    Happy belated birthday! Good for you in taking the A-Z Challenge. I did it last year but was too late this year to think about a theme. I’m 60 in August so looking forward to that. Look forward to reading the rest of your A-Z. Have a great day!
