Happy Birthday

Saturday was my birthday.
And it occurred to me that it's also close to the birthday of this blog. I've been blogging (journaling?) for over 2 years now. And still manage to post at least 2 to 3 messages a week.

On Thursday, the library staff presented me with one of my favorite cakes -- Strawberry Sparkle Cake. Yummy.

Saturday after work, my husband and the 9-year-old took me out to dinner. Now, my husband hates to go out to eat -- he prefers my cooking. On the other hand, I insist that on my birthday at least I get to eat something someone else has cooked.

Naturally, I had my traditional lobster tail. My husband had a salad, and the 9-year-old copped out and had a grilled cheese sandwich. On the other hand, she took several bites of my lobster tail and has decided she likes it. Oh dear -- she's developing expensive tastes.

Both my daughters called from California which was also nice.

When we got back home from the restaurant, we had presents and coconut cake. The 9-year-old had found a plaque that said nice things about grandmas and my husband presented me with some dark chocolate non-pariells -- which he immediately 'tested' to see if they were okay. They tested out fine.

Happy Birthday, belatedly!

Sounds like it was a yummy one.

Happy Birthday, Wendie! (Yes, it's dangerous when kids develop champagne tastes. Sometimes I wish we could turn back time to the grilled cheese days:>)
