I started out the day with homemade coffee cake. A client brought it in, still warm, for me to share with the office. It was delicious. At lunchtime off we went to lunch to celebrate me and a co-worker's birthdays. My son, R, had called right before to take me to lunch, but sadly I had to tell him I had plans! When I got home from work P and R were waiting with cake and gifts...and hungry stomachs! Phew....so I opened my gifts from them and off to dinner we went. Can I just say that both P & R enjoyed MY birthday dinner a lot!!!! When we got home I called my dad to thank him for my card & $ (aren't I too old for that?). R left to go back home to Buffalo and P & I waited for our daughter to get home to "sing". In the meantime I watered my plants and tried to figure out what the two HUGE bags of garbage were next to our garbage tote. My dad stopped over to his office (in our barn) and solved the mystery. Turns out his girlfriend "A" came over during the day and weeded my entire pool patio area!!!! WOO HOO - GO "A" GO!!! She is a treasure for sure. She is 73(?) and has way more energy than a lot of young people I know! I called her right up with a hearty thank-you you shouldn't have! We all, including the Pugs had some cake and called it a day. Need I say that I woke up during the night with horrible acid reflux and a stomach ache...blah, all that eatting!
I have been asking for binoculars for YEARS. Finally, P believed me and got them for me along with some perfume..sorry, I already forgot the name! The bottle is very cool and it came with a wooden base to sit on. My daughter bought me all the gardening stuff, a book and the sun hat. She knows how I worry about the sun! My son got me the Pug book with a dog training cd (is it too late????) I also got a cute greeting card from AM...see it in there? I got money from my dad and step-dad. Certainly not necessary, but appreciated!
My SIL got me these goodies. I always wanted one of those laser paperweights. She told me to wear the earrings to work! LOL Pug playing cards....well, you can never have enough cards, especially with cute Pugs on them! Still haven't hooked up with my BF and my sister... more surprises to come.
S - I only have one sister. The boys in my pics yesterday are two of my cousins. We were together all the time growing up!
