HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO ME! TURNING THE BIG 6-2


Today is my birthday and it is pouring rain!  I guess that's a good thing because it is washing all the allergens out of the air that have been bothering me so much this past week.  Even with my medication there are some things that just will not leave me alone.

This morning Joe gave me a beautiful card that brought tears to my eyes.  He then proceeded to make me scrambled eggs for breakfast.  No one makes scrambled eggs as good as my Joe.  Yum!

After we got showered and dressed Joe said he had to go out for a minute.  He came back from the store with a bouquet of a dozen red roses for me!





I wore one of the new tops my sister Elaine gave me for my birthday.  What else would you wear on your birthday except a birthday top?  It fit perfectly.  Thank you, Elaine!


Joe took me out for dinner tonight.  Here is Pumpkin in the window as we drove away.  He loves to sit in the window and watch what is going on.  I really will miss him, but I know it will be better for both him and us.  And Snowy especially.


We went to East Coast Wings and Grill for dinner.  The food there is always wonderful.


The flavor of the month was Kamikaze.  Neither of us were brave enough to try it.


Our server was Shandia.  She was terrific!  So pleasant and funny and couldn't do enough for us.  I hope we get her again.  I ordered the fish and chips.  It came with ketchup, cheese sauce, and tartar sauce with jalapeno.  I said, "This isn't bad" until I swallowed.  Then it kicked in.  Whew!  Joe got chili and fried pickles with Russian dressing for his appetizer and a burger and fries for his entree.



Joe had told our server that it was my birthday.  At the end of our meal three servers came to the table with a dish with two scoops of ice cream, a candle and two spoons.  They all sang happy birthday to me.  It was so funny when they came to the line, "Happy Birthday dear..."  They all then pointed at me and Joe said, "Kathy".  Thanks said one of them.  "... dear Kathy, Happy Birthday to you!"  It was hysterical.


For my birthday Joe gave me two coloring books, colored pencils, and a holiday collection of five of my favorite perfumes.


I also want to show you the four necklaces Joe gave me for Christmas.  So pretty!  I can't decide which I like more.  I think I like them all equally.


My friend, Chrissy, cane over later tonight.  She came bearing a gift for me.  It's a solar powered snowflake light for the yard.  So pretty.  I can't wait to see it lit.


It's been a long day but a good one.  Now I have to go to bed to get ready for my last full day at work.

2 days until retirement

  41. Happy, Happy Birthday, Sweetpea!! What a wonderful day you had! I've always sympathized with those of you born so close to Christmas, but your Santa/Joe knows how to treat a lady.

    And Happy One More Day---I guess you're in midst of it right now, and the scent of books and paper and wet shoes and damp coats and happy patrons is mingling around you like a hug. Very best wishes of BOTH days!
