Birthday Surprises

Opening the front door, there it was; a surprise, a birthday surprise. My birthday is tomorrow. It says not to open, right there in the corner. Do you see it? Only one person in the world who has handwriting like this is Auntie Mum. My Aunt from England. My Aunt oil paints, and she makes things, she does needlework and has always given me the coolest presents. Her's are always the best. My Aunt has also confessed to me that SHE never waits. She used to unwrap and re wrap all her Christmas gifts too. What would you do?

Two seconds and I began to tear open the box copious crushed papers to add suspense,oooooohhhhh,,...what is it?

It's round, a hatbox? A hat?








What's in the pretty blue box? A pajama gram! Cute nightie, cute do not disturb sign in nice language, "I'm relaxing," a little sachet, and a thank you note (they thought of everything,) but what's this? auntie slipped something extra in, a cute little nekkid cherub. Tigger said,"Good you have something else to pinch." sounds just like Grandma don't you think? ahh I feel special, I knew it would be a good present. I'll wait until my birthday to call her.

Happy HAPPY Birthday to YOUUUUUUUUU! (Tomorrow I wish you a Very Merry UN-Birthday, and the next, and ...) Celebrate with a SMILE, my precious friend. I wish I could be there to cook up something special for you! Tonight will be something special in your honor around here. (It will need to go with those yummy medallions on Noble P's blog -- Zowie, YUM!) I'm off to market and then to take a day of ease with a book. Too much blogging has cut into my reading time (this is part of my new "relaxed" blogger 'tude). I wish you a JOYful day. You are loved!!!! : ) XOXOXOXOXOXOX ... (forever)

HAVE FUN!!!!!!!

p.s. Going down nostalgia road with you the other day really made me miss our SC Days. I'm off to see The Sea on Thursday, but it won't be the same without something from Gayle's Bakery. I'm hankerin' for lunch on the wharf. You up to it??? Luv Ya!

I'm pretty sure if you copy and paste it will work this time.

OK, for some reason blogger totally cuts off the end of that. But, I will not be defeated!!

Hey, I like the color of your walls in the living room. When did you do that? I love the color of the candles with the walls. I would never have thought to put those colors together. You are so good at stuff like that!!!
