As I write this I'm sitting outside Starbucks enjoying the free birthday beverage they offer up. Today it's a peppermint mocha.
I have a stop to make at the Goodwill to drop off some household goods from my recent downsizing and move underground.
Family lunch today promises lasagna and haggis - the haggis in celebration of cousins visiting from Ontario - from the Scottish side of the family.
I'm meeting 42 with a degree of uncertainty, to be honest. Financial commitments surpass my income at present and that weighs heavily on my soul.
Perhaps 42 will bring with it some unforeseen prosperity.
