Belated Birthday Musings

We celebrated my (ahem) birthday a couple of weeks ago. On Friday night, Himself took me and Miss Priss out for dinner (Tiny Girl attended another birthday sleepover) and bought me a lovely cake. Another day, friends threw me a little tea party with homemade lemon scones. I received several books, including One Thousand Gifts, by Ann Voskamp, and The Unbearable Lightness of Scones, by Alexander McCall Smith, and FOUR Amazon gift cards. I've used about half the value on Kindle downloads. Yay! We also went out to eat with my folks and my sister and brother-in-law.

By Sunday evening, Himself asked me, "Are we done celebrating your birthday now?"

My absolute favorite gift came from my daughters: a handmade certificate, which read:

This certificate is for Mama
for an Amozon (sic) Gift Card
for $20 $25
and you don't have to pay!

First, I love it that I was deemed worthy of another five bucks. Second, I am supremely happy that I don't have to pay.


  1. Happy Belated Birthday! Sounds like it was a grand day :)

  2. So how do you like Anne's book? Just curious...

  3. Jeanne, I am not that far into the book, but I am intrigued thus far.


I love reading comments! And I appreciate the time you take to leave them. Thanks!
