Birthday Bonanza

Scooter Inspects My Gifts

Yes, another birthday has come and gone. The celebration lasted 2 weeks, and I enjoyed all the food, gifts, and fun company. I am feeling very spoiled and very blessed. Lucky me.
With Bill and Sue at La Gare

The festivities began with  cocktails, followed by a superb dinner and champagne.  A giant piece of carrot cake completed the meal.


A couple of days later, the party was an outing with Jane and the boys.
After a stop at the Jelly Belly Store, we enjoyed a picnic in the park. The weather was perfect: not too hot, not too cold.

Her surprise visit from Washington was my good fortune...lunch at one of my favorite restaurants and shopping. I redeemed my gift certificate from Bill and Sue at Urban Gardens, a wonderful store full of treasures. I had no problem treating myself to a fun gift, and I even had a little $$$ left over for future spending.

Pineapple Upside Down Cake

At the final birthday gathering, I was feted with more  wonderful  presents, a delicious meal, and this scrumptious dessert.  I am a fan of butter cream frosting, but this cake, with its crusty sides and bottom,  topped that by a wide margin. Big yum!

So another birthday bites the dust and I look forward to the next one, a biggie with a zero in the one's column. Ouch.


  1. Aww happy belated birthday (although I think I may have caught you in time on Facebook) I'm terrible with remembering. Looks like a good time was had. You are indeed very elegant.

  3. It sounds like a wonderful birthday! How lovely to have a surprise visit! And you do look very elegant in your picture.

  4. It was so special to be a part of this on-going, never-ending birthday celebration! It's going to be hard to top this with the Big Seven-O, but somehow I think you're up to the challenge! It'll be fun trying. Love, Baird
