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.
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.
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.”
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.
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.
Birthdays should come around more often than once a year!
