Storm and I visited the ROM, my gift from him (a fantastic day) but I didn't want to celebrate my birthday other than that for several reasons.
My age was not one of them, I'm 53 and 'amazed' to be here - lol.
My bodies looking good - I've been focusing on peace, I feel as though I'm getting stronger, mind & body EVERY DAY!
I was surprised by 2 - on the actual day. First 'Chuck, I've mentioned him before- my American pal- he is the one responsible for me TRYING to figure out why anyone would vote for Don - he sent me an e mail - 'for my sexy Canadian friend...'- he never fails to flirt my pal Chuck, :) - I swear- it's 10 years - we have been e mailing back and forth. It was really nice to get.\ the simple message from.. a stranger I've never met yet- never forgets.
Next 'Dawn sent me a comment here... I met Dawn at the first EXPO- she came with her hubby and all her dogs! I think she had 9 pets that she travelled with from B.C.! I liked her, a woman after my own heart with her animal appreciation, I liked her husband too- quite & gentle comes to mind when I think of him. How did she remember and how lovely she took the time. - it thew me.. I became emotional reading her message.
Thank you Universe & Dawn for the message.
No celebrating, no gifts and on my birthday that is what happened - until Tim Hortons decided to give me a free coffee. lol Yeeeee!!!
Storm left for Spain the next day- it was e a quite birthday week. .. I missed him the moment he left. That too was a gift from the Universe - my son away on an adventure with friends does a mom's heart good! I am beyond thrilled for him, as always.
The next day a friend showed up for a business meeting (**I am helping with a new product that will change the world for Dogs! REALLY!! I'm beyond excited-but I've signed a legal disclosure - I am NOT allowed to speak of it until hits the market!!) and she brought me a mug' with a logo I designed on it a few years back! Gift 2 from Rachael & the universe... even though I was determined NOT to tell anyone.
Next, I visited Kat- who's gallery has sold!! A friend of 30 years.. is moving to Montreal to be with her love. She will still do my framing she has assured me! I spied a 'Silver Bird while there, Kat insisted on it being a gift & is framing my favourite bears- for me! I told her 'after' it was my birthday week' lol & YOU can all thank Kat - as she gives me my matts to paint on & a gift of matts was waiting too!
I came home to hear a message on my machine from a friend:
"Georgia, watch your mail box- I've sent you a small gift"... there is NO way in hell he knew it's my birthday week.
I received a postcard in the mail form a woman 1/2 across the globe thanking me for my inspiration! & the Sugru- I ordered came in the mail!! Yeee- lol I already Sugru'd Storms apt while away! hahahaha It was a week full of tiny gifts that made me feel huge.
or 'Yuge'... lol (poor Don- he is a cartoonist dream)
Thank you for your little gifts that have my heart & mind looking past all those I wouldn't be hearing from & reminding me to listen to all who do want to wish me a Happy birthday, Happy Day and Happy Life.
Time to paint... That little fox was a fun afterthought' .. something was just missing. I recorded him being born' with time-lapse- you can watch it on my IG account: https://www.instagram.com/p/BRj_ZiJAaPG/?taken-by=georgia.toonswww.instagram.com/p/BRj_ZiJAaPG/?taken-by=georgia.toons
I almost forgot! I was treated to a gift from my lovely girlfriend in Norway!!
Today- after I entered this blog- I went to the mail to find a tiny purple octopus too!!

The Universe keeps giving! Good - I Am READY to Receive!
