Birthday Doings

Many thanks for the Birthday wishes, fellow bloggers!

As Grenville (aka Froggie) posted, yesterday was my birthday and  the love of my life, friend and special someone made it special.

HOW?

Simply by spending it together sans gifts, cake, or candles, BUT with a LOT of birthday cards.  Seems that Grenville forgot to lock windows and doors; the card fairies distributed them everywhere !

My birthday began with a trip to the local “Y” as most of our mornings start.

YMCA (1)YMCA (2)

breakfast (2)Of course, after all that exercise and no breakfast beforehand, we were hungry. Luckily the local diner is only a few minutes drive from the YMCA. We had the breakfast special shown on the sign – the “2-2-2.” 

It was delicious with a cup of coffee. breakfast (3)Who says you can’t have dessert for breakfast?breakfast (1) 

Or AFTER – this complimentary cherry cheesecake came with a chorus of Happy Birthday singing from the staff of waitresses and busboys.
Thanks Sage Diner!

Later in the afternoon, Grenville showed me a special project he has been researching, gravesites dating to the 1700s. He will most likely post about this project in a future blog; it’s quite interesting.

Annies (3)The day was capped by an early dinner at our favorite restaurant, Annie’s, which we last visited for Christmas Day dinner.

The holiday trees and lights were gone, but it was brightly decorated although the light strings don’t display well here.

We made a reservation to return for Valentine’s Day dinner.

Annies (4)Dinner was capped off by another complimentary dessert – apple pie a la mode. Thanks Matt & Annie!

You sure had a perfect day and thank you for sharing it with us. Nothing like cheesecake in the morning and ending it with apple pie. Your day WAS good.

Will be looking for Mr.B's post.

Hi All, yes it was a wonderful day.

Yes, Elaine, we ARE getting better and not older (thankfully)!

Thanks JP.

Larry, those card fairies worked overtime!

Thanks Steve, Daisy, Christer, & Tammy. Hope that Grenville blogs soon about his special cemetary project.

Oh Sweetie! Please bite your tongue! Birthdays should come around even less than a year. Cake and ice cream or lovely deserts came come any day of the week..but birthdays for me are coming fast and furious!
Such a sweet birthday picture of Princess Beatrice.. :)
Now Christmas...Jesus probably wouldn't mind his birthday coming around quickly so lets celebrate his a couple of times a year! :) Works for me! :)

Beatrice P. Boyd said...

Mona, whether or not we want them to come, birthdays do each year and thankfully we can celebrate them. Thanks for the compliment too. The idea about Christmas is a good one!
