Me. Glorious me.

Today is my 38th Birthday.

Below, self portrait of the artist as a newly minted middle-aged woman:




Enjoy, and happy January 23rd.

Happy birthday! Be kind to yourself, today.

Mik said...

Happy birthday to you, here via Avitable's blog.

Happy Birthday! You best be either eating lots of cake or drinking lots of wine (or both? How about both?)

And really, who needs feet? :)

Em said...

Have a lovely birthday, Nina.

Avitable said...

Happy birthday! I'm having prosthetic feet made for myself so when I turn 38 and my feet disappear, I have a spare set.

Interesting self-portrait. Let me suggest you are nowhere NEAR middle-aged, however ... for we women can live wonderful lives well beyond 76 (twice your current age). Fifty MIGHT be middle-aged (or even older?) so you have YEARS to go before you claim THAT milestone! I hope your birthday is a happy one indeed.
Hugs and blessings,

HAPPY BIRTHDAY!

Miss Britt said...

Happy Birthday!

Aren't boobs always inconvenient?

Wait. Um, no. No. Not always.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY!

Maggie said...

Happy Birthday gorgeous!

You know, feet are rather convenient if you want to wear pretty shoes. Best that you get a spare set from Avitable...

country roads said...

happy birthday! :-)

today's my best friend's birthday too. We're going out in a couple of hours (yes, in the afternoon :-))

P said...

Happy birthday, Nina. I think you're looking pretty fine.

Marlee said...

Yep, you look pretty YOUNG and THIN to me!!! :)

Happy 38th!

Tracy Lynn said...

HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO US!

Sarah is Ok said...

Happy Birthday, from one dissertation-avoider-with-a-blog to another!

bred said...

Happy Birthday!!!!! So glad you were born (so I can read your blog), and I hope this is your best year yet. I am soooooo looking forward to being 38--my youngest (who is almost 1) will be 7 years old, and my oldest will be 13... I'll be home free!!!

Have a wonderful day. :)

Nina said...

All, thanks!

Avitable, yes, grow the feet. As Maggie points out, I have nowhere to put all these cute shoes.

Storyteller, I will be fortunate indeed if I can double my age. I confess that I am not nearly as young looking or as thin as the drawing suggests (Marlee call me out on that one).

Tracy Lynn, Happy Birthday to us! I had a sammich, too!

Sarah is OK, Glad to hear from you. Stop by again with more news if you have it.

Many Happy Returns for the Day ;)

Beg pardon, but there's no such think as "inconvenient boobs." To me, anyway.

Still, if you're having problems, feel free to let me hang onto them for a while.

heh

jen said...

I'm sending you the best boxed wine available.

utenzi said...

Happy birthday, Nina. I hope you find your feet, they're very handy to have--so to speak.

Sandy said...

You look marvelous! :) Happy Birthday! Enjoy! (Just think, next year you won't have to blog on your birthday unless you want to!) (OR. Maybe you'll do the 365 blog thing forever and ever. The end.)

Woodrow said...

Happy Birthday, Nina. Have a Chimay with your cake for me.

LizB said...

A very happy birthday to you, bloggirl. :) Do something great!

sybil law said...

My first time here, but Happy Birthday! (I came over from Avitable's blog!)
I love your blog!

Liz said...

Happy birthday! Let's have midlife crises!

Kate P said...

Happy Birthday, Nina! I like your hair.

imaginary binky said...

As they would sing on "The Simpsons,"

You're the birthday,
You're the birthday,
You're the birthday...
Boy or girl!

Now go climb some rock.
