So it’s my birthday today (Saturday), and we had a little bit of fun. My work posse had a little dinner for me on Thursday, complete with broccolini, chocolate cake, amaretto, and black & white candles. (They managed to refrain from the singing, though.) A friend took me out to the Pub at Wegman’s for dinner last night (chocolate cheesecake & more amaretto). Tonight, I had dinner at the 401 Diner with my parents, the BFF & her husband. (BTW, ask for the roast beef sandwich to be served hot—super yummy!).
Giftwise, my niece gave me herb pots to grown my own (little does this poor child know that I have a black thumb, but I’m willing to give it a shot). Additionally, a stepladder from the BFF’s husband, a collage with a lovely poem (including the line “When you are blue, I will try to dislodge what’s choking you”) from the BFF, and earrings from their daughter. And fishy dishtowels and a tape measure from my friend & her hubby. Plus, lots of good food, good company, and good liquor all the way around. Happy Birthday to me, indeed!
