It seems like I have been celebrating my 70th birthday for weeks – what with visiting grandchildren and a big cake at the Family Reunion for all the Zero babies, but yesterday was my actual birthday, which I share with several friends, making it a joyous day indeed.
All day long I collected email birthday wishes – a virtual birthday party – arranged by my friend Peter. He always has something up his sleeve! A delightful gift!
Our favorite restaurant, the Gypsy Apple, is not open on Mondays so my husband stopped at the China Gourmet for my favorite meal, General Tso’s Chicken (yes, I know it’s not really Chinese) and stringbeans with garlic sauce, and he brought me a lemon cake with lemon buttercream and blueberries. Everyone at Green Fields sent their birthday wishes along with the cake.
I felt the blessings raining down on me all day. Thank you all.
