Happy Birthday to Me


Today is my birthday.... My sister brought me a bunch of hydrangeas from her home in CT. She is here for a few days for a visit. Since she's home I invited her family for dinner tonight. So I spent the day cooking and preparing to feed everyone, there were 11 of us. Her youngest son who we often only get to see once a year came up to visit (1.5 hr drive for him). My daughter brought her laundry and new kitten and spent a few hours also so it was a happy day for me....and now since I have turned 55 I'm eligible for the sr. senior discount at my favorite department store.... Yikes...I just can't imagine being a sr. citizen... but isn't 55 the new 45? I sure don't feel 55!

Hi Kay,
Sorry to be wishing you Happy Birthday a day late...hope you had lots of fun with you sis! :-) Yes, 55 is the new 45 so really you haven't even hit the big 50 yet...your still a youngster!
Wanted to let you know that the lace chargers you ask about...I ordered those online from either Horchow or Neiman Marcus. NM owns Horchow or Horchow owns NM...can't remember which way that goes. But anyway, they carry the exact same stuff, so I can't remember which store I ordered them from. It's been almost a year so I'm not sure if they still have them, but who knows, they may be getting them back in since it was about this time that I ordered them last year. Thanks again for the visit...those hydrangeas are gorgeous! Susan

Oh my gosh Kay, I can't believe I forgot your birthday. I am so sorry. I didn't even get your card in the mail. I don't even have an excuse except I have not looked at my birthday book. I am so sorry!!!

With that said, I am sending you many, many Happy birthday wishes!!

Your flowers are beautiful and what a nice gift!

It sounds like you had a great birthday!

Happy Birthday (it's my husband's also). Hydrangeas are the prettiest flower, fresh or dried!
