It is that time of year again!
Birthday's are always a time of celebration and children always
celebrate best with cake, balloons, games and lots of presents.
As I get older, I still celebrate, but it takes on a different look.
Here is how I celebrated my birthday this year.
Around the Table with my Husband, Daughter and Son-in-law.
Shannon cooked a delicious jambalaya and
we had blackberry cobbler with ice cream instead of birthday cake.
With a gift for the spirit when a quiet time is needed.
Peach Apricot Tea and Key Lime & White Chocolate Cookies.
(this one I am looking forward to enjoying)
With a gift for the bling in every girl.
A Bit of Jewelry in the Form of a New Watch.
And a gift to use when drinking the Peach Apricot Tea and Eating Cookies
on those days when I don't have to keep up with the time on that new Watch.
New Front Porch Rockers.
David and I don't usually exchange gifts these days.
We find we have few wants and fewer needs.
We usually opt instead to just enjoy a special dinner out.
But this year I requested these rockers.
I have lots of seating on the back porch, but none in the front.
After David cut the big oak tree down that was directly
in front of the porch, I now have a great view of the large front
yard and street. I can sit out here with my tea (or coffee) and
enjoy the birds and butterflies and watch the world go by.
And I can't think of anyone I would rather sit on the
porch and rock with than my hubby!
(I think we look little like ma & pa Kettle,
I guess having birthdays really does make you old!)
