Having a belated birthday dinner with some friends yielded some very nice gifts, an "Espresso" orchid (hope it lives!) and a bottle of Middle Sister wine. I'm a middle sister, as is friend Janice, so it's OK to be called a "drama queen." :) I think.
The plants are hanging in there - the temps have been mostly above 32 degrees, so I'm thrilled they are surviving the winter and will be able to grace the front porch in the spring. I loved the cardinal who visited the feeder and whistled a happy tune.
A friend who has been very ill left this belated birthday gift of kitchen candle and birthday cake chocolate bar at my front door on Valentine's Day. So thoughtful! It had been a long day of work, and then volunteer work. I was very weary and this perked me right up.
Hope you have a great weekend, my friends!
