Thank You for your Birthday Greetings....I am a Proud 62

Hello my friends, I had the most marvellous day today, and yes it was my birthday. My friend Terry arrived around 10 this morning and it was wonderful to see her. She screwed the straps on my deck box, then she put up the pot hangars for my hanging baskets and hung one by the front door and one on my deck by the patio doors. We then went to pick up some more Topsoil, Miracle grow, Round Up and everything else she said I needed and didn't have. We had so many laughs.

We went to Tim Horton's for lunch then headed into the city. We shopped at Costco, The Bay, 2 Health Food Stores, Home Depot, Garden Centers and a cute little shop we found downtown Jasper Avenue. Terry treated me to Dinner at an Italian Restaurant called Famosa. I have never ate a more delicious pizza, we each ordered our own and they packed up doggy bags to bring home. I enjoyed white wine with mine, I wasn't driving. LOL Terry had desert but I was too full to take another bite. We had a few stops to make on the way home for Terry's husband so it was close to 7:30 before we arrived. I managed to take a few pictures and will post them tomorrow.

I have had the most wonderful day today, full of fun, laughter and well being. Just to be able to share it all with one of my very best friends was magical. Thank you God for all my Blessings.

Terry leaves around 11 tomorrow morning as she is meeting her daughter for lunch before she drives back to Bonnyville. I have a Hair Appointment at noon to have my hair cut and streaked. Friday is doctor day and Saturday my friends are having a get together for my friend Karen whose birthday was the 25 of May and myself. That will be fun to see all the girls together again.

Our weather was wonderful for driving in the car and for shopping. Not really hot but comfortable.

I am very happy tonight and want to thank you all for your Birthday Greetings. Both of my brothers called tonight and my sister called yesterday. I had so many calls this morning and you know it's such a good feeling knowing people care and are thinking about me. Oh Life is Good.

Good night everyone and God Bless......:-) Hugs

Sounds like you had a lovely day with Terry. Belated birthday wishes for yesterday.
Might take that telephone wire some time to cool down!!! lol.
We had rain all yesterday, but today looks more promising, so we are off to the next coastal town to meet friends for coffee.
Friends are very dear.
Love Granny

Your "magical day" yesterday sounds like one I would have loved to share with you! Add my happy birthday wishes to all you received yesterdayl. And yes, my nails are painted red! Actually they were before I put that down on my list. Is that fair?? I will keep them looking good though instead of just letting the polish chip away. How's that? We had lots of rain, too! Our 57 gallon rain barrels filled up quickly! I guess we have rain for sale now :)

Happy Belated Birthday Bernie! Your birthday is the same as my husband's father (who passed away a few years ago) and also the same as my nephew's wedding anniversary.
I am so glad you had a wonderful and happy day! Best of luck and health in the upcoming year!!
