Happy Birthday to Me….
Thank you all for your birthday wishes and virtual cakes! They really made my day special!
Since both GF Guy and I had to work today, we decided to move my birthday to tomorrow. That didn’t stop me from receiving 3, count ’em, 3 gorgeous bouquets of roses, lilies, and daisies. The first bouquet was a gorgeous fountain of 2 dozen red and yellow roses.
GF Guy must have set them up when he arrived home from the theater at 12:30 last night. (I was already asleep.) They were the first thing to great me as I stumbled out of bed.
Good start to the day? Check!
The second bouquet was delivered to me at work around 3:00 PM. This bouquet was from my amazing parents. Two dozen yellow roses
tethering a brightly colored Happy Birthday balloon in place
were placed in my arms by a portly little man sporting coke-bottle glasses, a skin tight t-shirt, and suspenders. He loudly declared “I hope you enjoy theesh flowersh!” with the most pronounced bi-lateral lisp I have every heard. It was a glorious moment….
Entertaining respite from work? Check!
Lastly, I stumbled into my in-law’s house around 8:45 PM to pick up Dickens where I was presented with a bright and bubbly purple and white bouquet of lilies, daisies, and amaryllises.
Am I spoiled or what?
End with a bang? Check!
(sorry the lighting is so bad… I live in an apt., ’nuff said!)
Seeing as I didn’t get to eat dinner until 9:30, I inhaled the last of the Chicken and Vegetable Sick-y Soup instead of bothering to cook something new and entertaining.
Then, since it is my birthday, I made a very “Me” birthday dessert:
Pumpkin Puree and a Kinnikinnick S’moreable (Graham Cracker)
Instead of blowing out candles, I crushed the graham cracker and made a **wish**! Dickens helped me celebrate GF/DF Bachelorette style!
I’m not sure what GF Guy has planned for tomorrow. Hopefully, it will be low key. I am still feeling rather weak. Can I just tell you how proud I was of myself for making it through work today?
Hopefully, the blog will return to the world of recipes soon. For now, I am focused on getting better. Would you rather I wait to post until I have a new recipe, or would you prefer I post more frequently even if it means no recipe?
Now, I am going to curl up in bed with a book and my puppy. Good night, friends!
