The handbag pictured above is my first give-away on this blog.
This was my birthday weekend. The weather was marvelous -- a high of 82, which is almost unheard of this time of year. We took advantage of being outside most of the day. I pottered around and husband installed my garden fence to keep the dogs and rabbits out.
Saturday night we had dinner in the gazebo. Husband grilled ribs and I made mushrooms and caramelized onions, stuffed and baked tomatoes and garlic bread. Here's a picture he made as we prepared to feast.
So, I got a garden fence and unlimited purchases for my Kindle e-reader. I received several phone calls--from my sister, father-in-law and both children, Patrick and Melissa. I got several cards in the mail and numerous Happy Birthday wishes from Facebook friends. But the gift I received that I can't get off my mind today is a raging summer cold! Headaches, sore throat, the works. I caught it from my husband, who had had one going a few days. It'll run it's course soon, but summer colds are so inconvenient! So today I stayed home and drank tea, ate soup and napped throughout the day.
Hoping you'll have a great week!
