Hello, friends.  I started this post yesterday, but I am having so much trouble with my computer.  It kept crashing over and over and finally locked me out.  I had to wait until today to get in.  And even then I had problems.  But I am here now and I want to tell you about my birthday the end of December.  I promise you I will catch up soon!

It really wasn't much of a birthday.  I wasn't feeling all that great and slept most of the day.  Joe and I were going to go out to Yamato's for lunch, but I was just so tired that I couldn't do it.  Instead, we called out for lunch to our local Chinese food delivery.  I opted to have Egg Foo Yung.  I have not had it in so long.  Years probably.  But I just had a yen for it.  And I'm glad I did.  It was so good!  A great choice.  And here is what my fortune in my cookie said.

In the afternoon there was a knock at the door and a guy handed me a box.  In it was the most adorable bouquet I think I have ever seen.  It was white carnations in the shape of a cat with other colored flowers around it.  It looked just like a cat in a garden.  The holder it was in looked like a wicker cat bed.  So cute!  It lasted a long time too.  Almost two weeks.  Joe certainly got his money out of that.

He also gave me a bottle of Gloria Vanderbilt perfume (my favorite) and two pair of jeans.  Oh, and a new square griddle pan which is wonderful.  Nothing sticks to it.  Also a 9 x 13 pan with a snap on lid, and a set of measuring cups and spoons.  I think he wants me to cook. (ha, ha)

The rest of the day?  Well...  I fell asleep and slept all afternoon.  I didn't feel like cooking dinner, either, so we called out to Dominos and got a pizza for Joe and chicken wings for me.  We also got garlic bread and brownies.  Yum!

Not much of a birthday, huh?  Well, not every year is great.  But hopefully this year will be better because I have a big birthday in 2023.  But you will have to wait a year to hear about that.

I have a video on YouTube about my birthday.  Here's a link to it if you want to see more.

And now it's time for me to make dinner.  Bible study night so I have to have it earlier than we usually do.  Besides, I'm hungry.  Talk to you all later and thanks so much for stopping by.
