It's My Birthday!

I'm 52 today. I love birthdays! I got lots of nice gifts and cards at work. In the afternoon my daughter-in-law and granddaughter came to my office to help celebrate. That's my cake above. I asked the bakery to design a quilt with thread on it. It turned out differently than what I had in mind. I guess I've watched too many episodes of Ace of Cakes. But it's still cute and colorful. I shared it with my unit, about 2 dozen co-workers, daughter-in-law and granddaughter. I also sent a piece home for my son, who was busy working.

After work I stopped and had a quick dinner with my son, daughter-in-law and granddaughter. We had take-out from La Morenita, our favorite Mexican restaurant, and I got several lovely gifts. I didn't get to stay long, because I had to get to my Thursday night orchestra rehearsal at church, where I play the piano. At rehearsal I got a couple of cards and many mentions of my birthday.

During the day most of my siblings called to wish me happy birthday. By late evening I still hadn't heard from my daughter, who lives in another state. I text messaged her, asking her what the date was. She answered that she was pretty mad at herself for forgetting my birthday...again. (She's not good at remembering dates. I usually have to remind her about those things.) She'll make it up to me.

It was a great day. I love birthdays!
