My passport has been renewed and should arrive within two weeks. I was able to keep my old one with all the cool stamps. Little thing but it makes me smile to remember the places I've been.
Had lunch with a good friend. We admired the hats I'd made for each of us. Mine needs a photo. You've already seen hers.
She helped me adjust to the fact that tomorrow I can no longer deny I'm middle-aged. Yes, women in my family live into their late nineties, one hundred years or older. So middle age. I thought my life would look so different than this so the last few days have been full of woe. I wasn't sure why, I actually like my life a lot. We concluded that I was trying on the expectations and perceptions the rest of society have about how I should look/act/feel at this age. I gave that back. It didn't fit, wasn't attractive and was a style that didn't suit. I was horribly uncomfortable. I feel much better now. Amazing what a good conversation can accomplish.
Hope your day met your own expectations, or better.
