Birthdays to me are ususally, like whatever, no big deal.
But I had the nicest most low key b-day yesterday, I thought I'd share.
While being served coffee in bed by my Honey, I was greeted to birthday hugs and kisses from my daughter Emily. She made me a treasure!
I wonder who inspired this creation in her?
A tiny teacup is filled with aqua crystals.
Then we headed out to breakfast at a local Mom & Pop eatery called Corkys.
There is always a line there, especially on a Sunday morning.
I asked the manager how many eggs they go through in one week and she said between two restaurants, her last count was 69,000 eggs in one week.
Can you believe that?
Then we were off to the Nursery and Pond store.
I got this beautiful water lily and two new fish for my pond.
There is one of them, the spotted guy!
Emily helped me garden, until she got bored and went to play with friends.
My sweet Dusty Dog helped though. He is my shadow.
So, I cranked up the tunes and gardened all afternoon.
Isn't this the coolest Zinnia?
Rob bought me a Fuschia. I LOVE fuschias and do have a pretty good green thumb, but always seem to kill these. I hope this one lives. Such a whimsical flower!
I made this sign forever ago, like 15 years ago.
Still love it as Ralph Waldo Emerson is one of my favorite poets.
They had such pretty pots at the nursery for sale, full of mixes of flowers. So, I made my own mixed flower pots and added little statues, birds, etc.
These are the neighbor girl Pixies, oh except for the guy in the middle...LOL.
They came and brought me some hand made gifts...so sweet.
As my kids have always said, "Mom, you are everyone's Mom."
and I am.
As tiring as parenting can be, I adore my kids and overall like kids
and animals more than many adults.
Sweet art by three of my favorite little girls!
What a better way to end a b-day than to be sitting enjoying a glass of wine,
while watching your Man cook you dinner.
After all, isn't that a Man's place, in the kitchen???
Thank you everyone that called, emailed or Facebooked me Happy b-day wishes.
It was a lovely day!
