Elaborate birthday

Celebrations have nothing on the

Likes of this one.

I get to blow out the sun, the

Perfect gift.

Satisfying a long held



This year I get to celebrate my 37th birthday in celestial style. The eclipse is on my birthday, the path of totality is crossing the town I was born in and totality starts at the time I was born. My hope is to blow out my candle when the sun goes out. I just have to pray for clear skies. Here's hoping!

My life is a little crazy. Four kids, homeschool, write, create and coffee. Coffee is a verb. Do you coffee? I aspire to blow glass and finish / publish my novel. I would like to have an impact. Also, coffee.

    May I ask when your birthday is? I am wondering if it is a challenge inspired ECLIPSE on your birthday or a total eclipse coming my way? I have read nothing about it in Sweden where I live. I loved your acrostic poem either way!
