Guess what day it is??

Come on...guess..
Give up?


I'll give you a hint.....there are some magical numbers in your life..


...16..21..30..50..then...60??


No...59. Yep. Me. Today. 59.


Yeah me!


So here's a run down of a really great birthday...


Got up early and went to the dentist....for the temporary crown..was dum {again} fwom by mout to by nobse....


But since I was out anyway......I stopped by the bookstore to spend my birthday money from Mr. B v2.0 and his lovely wife, Colette. Got this...





Yeah! A great tote bag, 2 to-scream-for books and a great magazine!
(and I still have money left over!)

Mother-in-Law Evie gave me a gift card to....


This is one of my very favorite plus-sized store. GREAT sales! (and, I still have some gift card left over!)

Jeff & Rachael got me cultured pearls...I have practally drooled over hers since Jeff got them for her, but I never expected...

Yeah. Me. Pearls. Ain't that...classy!

Kathy (who's birthday is ToMOrrOw!)..uh..she's older..teehee had this adorable small quilt made for my table..

Red! Ah, my favorite color! And it was wrapped up with this cute "Happy Birthday" ribbon with the heart button...I LOVE details!

So, anyway, I get to work...almost lunch time..and find this on my desk along with some of the sweetest garden-fresh roses from my boss, Sacha..

I opened the bag and..........................

Does she know me or what??? The hankie is from the 50's...just like ME..

She buys me lunch (WW Qusadilla from Applebee's) AND lets me off at 3pm!!

Sacha, you ROCK!

OK, I get home and I have a package from Betty from http://www.joyinourlives.blogspot.com/ ....she sent me this DaRLinG apron!

How did she know! I'm am TOTALLY "into" aprons lately! So, I put it on right away..modeled for Mr. B (that lucky guy) and, well, judge for yourself...

Mom-in-law Evie made these ScrUmpTioUs "corn-flake" macaroons..Hmmmmm....

would you like some??

OK..maybe just one......

Brother Larry called me (not brother link in a monk.. brother, like the Kindergarten Cowboy brother..)

He's feeling better after the 2nd. chemo and to hear him laugh was the BEST birthday present of all! My sisters were visiting him and having my birthday party..(hmm..without me..hey..)

So, off to bed am I..and NO MORE COOKIES!!...I am strong...I will not eat one more...

"Waff coffie? I'm nooot eatin' a coofie..."

Happiest birthday wishes to you, sweet Colleen!! I think your gifts are wonderful. You know, you need to put on those pearls, tie on your apron and do a little June Cleaver-type housework! hee hee What a perfect ensemble for a child of the Fifties. Oh, wait, I'm one too. Guess I'll put mine on and join you.
Sending you a big birthday hug from Georgia.

love-
Karin

Oh, I am SO happy you had a wonderful day...especially the call from Larry. Good news!

Wow, it must be fate! For my upcoming birthday, my friend in Idaho sent me a subscription to Mary Janes Farm...the same Mary Jane who publishes Outpost!! That is almost Twilight Zonish...nene, nene.

Your pearls are beautiful as were all your other goodies. Again, happy, happy! Love you.
