Yes, today is my birthday! And I have been celebrating since Friday!! I had a wonderful old Great Aunt Frances who believed that special occasions should last longer than 1 day, so I took a page from her book this year!
Becky kicked the weekend off with her Martini Happy Hour on Friday. Just a few of my closest work friends - perfect. Then Saturday I had a long lunch with another 2 bff's - Terri and Charmaine. We spent the afternoon downtown at Duncan's Pub. Hours of good food, tons of gossip, and so much laughing my face hurt when I got home!
Sunday I woke up early and snuck out of the house alone for a few hours. I am a text-book "only-child" so I need to have a little quiet, personal time every once in awhile. I hopped in the car, cranked up the stereo, and went for a long drive along the Northumberland Shore - cottage country! I had the camera and stopped lots of different places along the way, happily snapping shots. I had some great shots..........or so I thought. But when I got home 3 hours later and downloaded them -------none of them turned out. They all were way over-exposed. I guess I had a setting wrong. There are too many darn buttons and dials on this camera. But even so, I had a great morning.
Then I grabbed the family and took them for a drive for the afternoon. I headed in the opposite direction and took them along the Bay of Fundy shore to Parrsboro and we had a seafood supper on the wharf.
Today was the BIG DAY. It really has been a perfect birthday weekend which ended with a family dinner and of course cake. I finally got the deck furniture re-built this morning, so I spent the afternoon sitting in the lounger with Millie and a book. I couldn't have asked for a better birthday weekend, or better friends!
