May 2011 Archives

5/31/11 -- With my computer finally up and running, I was able to put together the Birthday Toasts and send them to Lucy.  She was delighted and you can read her note above.  Thanks so much for taking Lucy's suggestion to "do something out of the usual that nourishes them in some way."  What a great idea Lucy had to celebrate her birthday and what fun and novel ideas you all came up with. 

Thought I'd post them here so you could see what made her so happy :)


I toast Lucy with the container of scrap metal I have collected for months to turn into cash for Unity for Life Transplant Tucson.

I raise a toast to Lucy with flour as I baked traditional Finnish bread with good friends and lots of laughter.

I toast Lucy by spending a peaceful hour or two down at Wantagh Park on the south shore of Long Island feeding the ducks, geese & fish as I sit and look out over the Great South Bay & breathing in the salty sea air.  I'll be drinking a thermos full of herbal tea & listening to LL's Roxy CD while feeding the wildlife.  Oops...forgot about the sea gulls swooping in...will have to wear a hat.

I toast Lucy with the "supermoon" as I went out to watch the moon, which is the closest that it has been to the earth in 18 years,  with a dear friend and thinking of peace for the world.

I toasted Lucy with a Texas Margarita in my hand, a cat on my lap, and 5 other cats sitting around me, gazing at me adoringly. The fact that I had a slice of pizza in my other hand had nothing to do with their devotion. Nope, not a bit.

I raise a toast to Lucy with Maple Syrup as I run from tree to tree collecting sap.

As a 60yr old this June(!) and a long ago Catholic school gal who always stayed in line, I will light up in a toast to Lucy, one of these flavored cigarillos I bought, to remind me of simple desires. Having never been a smoker, I'll find it a lovely, overdue indulgence as I sit on my back deck, stare at the horizon over Campobello Island, and reflect back on all the years as the smoke disappears in the breeze; much like these fast moving years. My toast will include a well-aware laugh, and maybe a Hail Mary for good measure. ;)

I toast Lucy with storybooks as today I read to my daughter’s class.

I toast Lucy with a motivation video I made, while out running, for my fellow Xenites on the 'To a Strong Amazon Nation' group on Facebook that we set up to encourage one another to keep healthy and stay fit!

I've had a bad back for years after a car accident and regular PT just didn't help. But, recently I took up Poi Spinning... And blow me over with a happy feather but THAT actually worked wonders!! No one was more surprised than my physical therapist!
So in short - I'll raise a toast to Lucy with a pair of spinning poi, as that seems to be all I want to do these days! Such amazing fun! (and with origins in NZ too - double woot!!)
