I had one of the best if not the best birthdays in memory yesterday. Perhaps some of it was just the perspective you associate with it but, all in all it was Great! One of the highlights was all the birthday greetings from my friends. They truly made my day! Friends and their friendship is one of the most important parts of life for me. Thank you all.
The first thing to greet me when I came to the kitchen for breakfast were these flowers. Jeanne had set them up the night before complete with a foil Happy Birthday balloon. Great start to the day.
Since this was a momentous birthday for me (70th) I decided it was only proper to treat myself to a new camera, which just happened to arrive yesterday. 🙂
More about the camera in a later post but it was a momentous one to match the day.
Cloudy and gray skies yesterday morning and the eagles sitting on the frozen pond were pretty far away but I had to grab a shot of them with the new camera. It really wasn’t configured yet but I had to take the shot. All things considered they are passable images.
Then I had a wonderful lunch with my Daughter, Gabby, and Austin. It was so much fun. I have to tell you that trying to eat with a 18 month old is no easy chore. Austin is such a sweet young man and a total delight to be with.
Then after a good nap, which is always important, Jeanne and I went to Josh’s hockey practice, which lasted for an hour. After that we went to Texas Road House for dinner. I wanted to stay up and finish configuring my camera but hey, I’m old and I needed to get to bed. 🙂
Anyway it was a fantastic day filled with family and friends. Three of my friends even called me, which was really special. The only thing that would have made the day any better was if Mark could have been home. The good news is that we will all be getting together to officially celebrate the momentous birthday with episode 6 of Star Wars at Angie and Ben’s home.
Sorry to be so much about my day but it was fun.
Thanks for stopping by. Enjoy your day and be careful.
