Happy heart, raspberry elegance and good things

- It was my birthday on Wednesday.  I think it's lovely to have your own special day, but I resist special attention to it usually.  However, on Wednesday - I was greeted with this printed out message on both computers (I have two cubicles at the printing company), the welcome sign up front and inside the restroom door.  :)  Friend and coworker Bren did that - it made me start out the day with a happy heart.

- And then there was cake!  A "Raspberry Elegance" cake - so good that I had two pieces.

- And there was much needed laughter with friend Leisa, who went with me to dinner to celebrate.  I had filet of regionally caught trout, sauteed, and topped with pesto butter and sugared pecans.  Served with white cheddar grits and roasted brussel sprouts.  YUM.

AND my sister Jo has come to visit and will be with me until Sunday for sister time.  I'm so happy.  (For someone resisting attention to her birthday, I sure have called more attention to it now, I guess.)  

Bonus good thing:  the beautiful "Snow moon" this week that was still beautiful Thursday morning on my drive to work.  Incredibly beautiful.

Have a great weekend, y'all!

Happy Birthday a bit late.

BTW Birthdays should always be celebrated!!!!

Remind me not to visit your site when I'm hungry. I think I've said this stomach was growling at your description of the birthday meal. YUMMY.

Ahhh, so nice.

And happy belated birthday, Lynnie.

I see you keep hand sanitizer by your computer, as I do. Good idea!
