Birthday Week

This week I celebrated my 67th birthday.

I got another year older, a pound or so heavier, and wiser - well maybe on some things. All in all it has been a great year - the one thing that is great each and every day is that Leon has retired. I do enjoy him being around all the time. On some days I don't get much accomplished in the house because I am piddling around watching or helping him with his various projects. If he needs to go into town most all of the time I ride along.

Back to the events of my birthday week. I got a lot of cards from family and friends, plus best wishes via email from my blogging buddies, several phone calls and eating out. Leon took me out on my birthday . Then on Friday night Howard and Joan took us out to a great steakhouse for steak (naturally). Wow, it was great tasting and so tender. Then on Saturday we went to Holly and Tony's house. She fixed us lunch, plus had birthday cake and ice cream.

I had told Holly not to get me anything for my birthday - did she pay any attention to what I said - no, she did not! Well, she said she did think about what I said, but when they saw this frog with his arms folded it reminded them of me. Do you suppose they think I am "stubborn" or "determined"?

So glad you had a good birthday week. Birthdays can be fun if you just let them happen. It's great to celebrate with family and friends whatever the occasion.

That's a real cute frog, and I'm sure they weren't thinking you were anything of the kind :P

Happy Birthday, Amelia!
