The Birthday Rundown

Since so many a couple of you asked, here’s how I celebrated my birthday last week:

Breakfast with Motor Man and Marshall at Bojangles, and roses from the two of them.

Later that day, beachcombing with my friend, Bev. We found shells and a couple of pieces of sea glass.

Dinner that night at a local restaurant with Motor Man and members of his family, including Motor Mum.

Lunch and laughs on Thursday with my good friends, Linda and Donna.

And, last but not least, a two-hour “catch up” lunch with my friend, Doris, on Friday. It had been way too long since we’d seen each other.

I have a bit more celebrating to do (soon) with my sister and niece.  This year, I made a rule that, with every birthday, I’m going to stretch the celebration out a bit longer. It was a week filled with family, friends, fun, love and good times. Oh, and did someone mention food? I don’t even want to think about all the birthday desserts I ate…..

And I promise: no more about my birthday for, oh, about the next 51 weeks.

    What a great idea. If I have another birthday, I think I’ll celebrate the whole week. Hard to squeeze everything into just one day.

  2. You had a really GREAT “looooooong” birthday! It’s fun to read about because it reminds me of when I used to do that myself. These days it’s “oh it’s my birthday” and off I go on errands or cleaning the house…HAHAHA

    Hugs, Pam
