I recently won a give-a-way from Brenda AtThe Rusty Thimble I just love my
sooo cute and a great way to start my birthday.
On Friday my husband picked flowers from my garden and delivered them to work.
which I thought was sooo sweet. That night we had Chinese which we never get because husband
doesn't like it that much but for my birthday he was happy to eat it.
On Sat my actual birthday I went to a sale and got
a couple of great things that have some age. Then I went to stay at my daughters to spend the night with my grand daughter and the grand dog. It was very hot so Miss B and I spent the day in her kiddy pool.
when she took a nap so did I! Every one kept saying are you sure you want to babysit on your birthday? I can't think of a better way to spend my day then with my favorite girl.
My daughter made me a cake and gave me a big stack of ones with instructions in the card of
all the things I couldn't spend it on. In other words just for me! I also had a gift card from mother's day so today when I got home husband and I went shopping.
Some good smelling soap and powder among other things. We are having very high humidity and in
Northern NH there are not many people who have whole house air. (So this will come in handy. I was looking for powder with the powder puff but no luck.)
usually we have one or two days of it and it's over but there has been a lot of it this year.
I really don't want to complain because I have seen on the news the horror the rest of the country
has had from this summer's weather.We have
had plenty of rain and everything is lush and great just
We hit a antiques mall and I found a piece of my pottery it is large and lovely and cheap.
I told husband with my money that was left I would treat him to an ice cream.
we went to a little place on the lake. They were having customer appreciation.
So we got a free hot dog and drink sat on the deck and watched the storm come in over the lake
the boats were going for all they could to get out of the storm.
We got our ice cream and ran for the truck.
Just as I was telling husband what a great birthday I had, in drives one of my
great friends who I haven't seen since new years day. She jumps out of the car and said I
heard it was your birthday and passes me some vintage Christmas ornaments!
Be still my heart. She lives in Maine and our paths just don't pass as much as it use to
when she lived in my town. Such a great ending to a great weekend.
you know we had to go to the dump during our trips this weekend.
I pulled this out of the metal pile. Hand painted and just great.
I also got miss B some sides to go on a bed so when she gets to a big girl bed she
will not fall out.
Life is good!
I finally figured out the only reason to be alive is to enjoy it.
