Birthdays . . .

A very Happy Birthday to [personal profile] ladyjax today and to [personal profile] benedict tomorrow!!!


This would have been Saki's 19th birthday/coming home day. I was so lucky to have such a clown and sweetheart in my life for 16 years--many were hard years that I am grateful for because she was in them for the brightest moments.

Happy birthday, [livejournal.com profile] ancalime8301!!!!

I don't know if you got out to Annapolis often, but here's a pic I took at the docks when I was down there for the Women's march the other week:

I know you're having to do a lot of traveling this year so I'm wishing you smooth sailing in getting through it all to some relaxing times, dear friend, and that you take some of that time when you need it. Maia and Hana will show you how because cats are experts in that. (-: *hugs*

Super Moon Birthday!!!

A very happy birthday to my dear exuberant friend [livejournal.com profile] ekaterin24 aka [personal profile] zlabya!!!! I'm so glad we've gotten to be friends the last year--having you nearby makes my life so much better and fuller. I hope you've had a great birthday. Here is a sparkler tree for you as a birthday candle on an earth cake:

DSCN5490
A tulip poplar pretending to be one of Gandalf's fireworks--the one behind the fire station I told you to look up at, but taken a week ago. And here's your birthday moon:

DSCN5902
The supermoon rising over Greenbelt Lake a quarter hour after sunset this evening. Not that I can tell if it's any bigger than a regular full moon. If you look really close, you can see a gray dot along the shoreline a half inch from the left side of the pic--that's a great blue heron who just landed.

I also want to wish a happy belated birthday to [livejournal.com profile] just_ann_now! I hope it was a good one and there's a closer supermoon pic below for you.

Today I went to a brunch and movie in DC with my Jewish Lesbian group--it wound up being just 2 of us. But kibitzing over brunch and seeing a good movie was just what I needed today. We saw Denial with Rachel Weisz. It's about the 1996 trial in the UK between historian Deborah Lipstadt and Holocaust denier David Irving who was claiming libel against her. Wonderfully paced and well done.

I listened to interviews with Bernie Sanders and Michael Moore about the election on the radio on the way home, and they were calming. Then I took a walk and snapped the above supermoon pic and the one below the cut. So a much better day than the rest of the post-election week (excepting a lovely walk with [profile] zblaya on Friday and talking with ya'll.)
