I have had a magnificent birthday! It goes without saying how special y'all made me feel - thank you! A friend took me out for a late and long lunch - she didn't know it was my birthday and I didn't tell her - but we had a 2 hour Mexican lunch. The Ogre picked up Chinese take out and somehow arranged for all the kids to be there for dinner which is a rarity. The cake was stupid though. It was a very bad strawberry shortcake. So I'm going to get myself some Muddy's cupcakes tomorrow. I got a terrarium from our oldest - it has a little gnome in it - I named him Bellis in honor of the fornit from Flexible Bullet - we had some fun looking up the name of the other fornit - do you remember
it's Rackne
.

I got a Timex from the Ogre - I hate having to fish my phone out to find the time - so now I have a sassy watch - it lights up in the dark if you press a button - very retro. Ben got me chocolate covered strawberries - yum. Elly got me a very pretty rose gold hummingbird necklace. All very thoughtful. Everyone has their own jobs, their own money. They grew up so fast. I'm blessed. I have a very nice bottle of sipping vodka. I think I'm on my 3rd drink. But I'm 50 today, I can handle it.

We got a visit from MadamMack !! It was a good day.

Oh - it's storming here!! Thanks be to God because it was 107 degrees here today. Horrendous heat. I saw a katydid and a praying mantis. All the guinea pigs let me cuddle them this morning. It was magical day.

My birthday also happens to be Left Handers days - which is appropriate, because I'm left handed.

Probably more than you ever wanted to know about my day, but that's how important you all are to me. I wish I could be around more. Most evenings I have to cook, go to the gym, blahdy blah.

Ugh! I missed your birthday, I'm so sorry Holly-Polly! I've just read your post above, it sounds like the perfect day except for your cake, let me find you some chocolatey goodness right now.

Mucho love and belated birthday blessings to you my friend.


:biglove:

Oooh lala! You found Prozac! I didn't make it down there today - it was way to busy at work. But tomorrow is an HDO (that's a Holy Day of Obligation) and the office is closed. So I'll go for breakfast. They are amazing. That's buttercream frosting there.

Send me a description of the Prozac deconstruction. (on second-thought, maybe not... that's sounding very fetish-territory-ish. :Oo: )
Also, I read that as a: "Holly Day of Obligation" :a11:
