My birthday 我的生日

Today is my birthday.

No big celebration, because we have celebrated the birth of Jesus yesterday.

No big feast, we have eaten too much. Christmas Eve dinner. Menu : turkey, chicken, pig wrapped in blanket.....

Then dinner invitation to friend's house on Christmas....

This evening attended a pre-wedding buffet at my friend's house. Her son is getting married tomorrow follow by a grand wedding dinner in the evening.

Too much of eating.

My children prepared "birthday cake" for me tonight, two delicious muffin with a big candle...

But I have marked my birthday in the afternoon by washing my car, a physical chore to remind myself to be grateful to God that I am healthy, active and enjoying life, especially physical activities.

How old am I ? feeling not a day older than 50!



今天是我的生日。

没有大事庆祝,因为昨天刚庆祝了耶稣的生日。

没有大餐庆祝,因为我们吃的太多。圣诞前夕吃了个家庭大餐。 菜单: 烤火鸡,大肥鸡,被单包猪猪。。。。。

圣诞节晚上受邀到朋友家欢庆圣诞晚餐。

今晚去了朋友家,参加他儿子结婚前自由晚餐。明天还有正式的隆重婚宴。

太多的餐食了。

所以,孩子今晚准备了简单的生日“蛋糕”, 两个 muffin 加上一支大蜡烛。

不过,我在今天下午以洗车来标志我的生日。我以这项劳力工作,提醒自己要感恩我现在所拥有的健康,活力及享受生活,特别是一些体力的活动。

我今年几岁了? 感觉上,还未老过五十岁 !
