that would be me :)
I celebrated my birthday on Sunday. Can't say it was as exciting as turning 40 last year, and next year's 42 will be a much cooler age, but it was all good. Pete and the kids gave me an Ipod Touch, which I am having a lot of fun with, and one of our friends who is a singer/songwriter conspired with other friends and family to record a song for me! Loretta, originally recorded by Townes Van Zandt - with a few lyric changes of course. It was simultaneously sweet, thoughtful, flattering, embarrassing and slightly annoying - as everyone kept abandoning me to go and conspire..lol..
Not being a country music fan, I had never heard the song before - and I must say that it's a lovely song, and also very nice to have lyrics to associate with my name that are not from the Beatle's Get Back:
Sweet loretta martin thought she was a woman
But she was another man
All the girls around her say she's got it coming
But she gets it while she can
Speaking of lyrics, if you are a fan of the soundtrack of the musical Hair, did you know that this
When the moon is in the Seventh House
And Jupiter aligns with Mars
will actually happen on Feb 14 this year? Let's hope that this bit goes along with it...
Then peace will guide the planets
And love will steer the stars
Ok, three red wines and a blog post might not be the best idea. See you in a couple of days :)
Oh, and happy back to school for tomorrow! Here's my highschooler, starting a new adventure tomorrow, but still not too old to snuggle with cats, fortunately.
