A Day in My Life

Today is my 51st birthday and Del is home from work all week so it was not a usual Thursday. It started with sleeping in and fresh donuts for breakfast (because I was not in the mood to bake myself a cake).


Then I opened my birthday mail, I got some nice cards and a lovely present from a friend - a handmade over the sofa arm sewing caddy, lots of little tools and some pretty green cotton yarn. From another friend I got an Amazon gift card. I checked my emails and FB account - more birthday wishes from friends and family.


Lunch was MSG free Chinese takeout, I had hot and sour soup, crab rangoon and vegetable lo mein, yummy and there is plenty left for tomorrow.


The afternoon was spent watching old James Bond movies, slurping iced coffee and finishing off the donuts.
The temperature was in the 70s all day which made for a nice cool house and I even had cold feet. The cats were livelier than they have been in a long time, enjoying the cooler temperatures as well.

Happy Happy Birthday! Sounds like a pretty nice day. Donuts instead of making your own cake was a brilliant move on your part.
