HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO ME!

Aren't these just yummy? I would take any one of them for my birthday cake! 62 years old today. It is what it is. I'm above ground and this is good.



Power was out all this morning. We have unbelievable HIGH WINDS today and they say tomorrow. It's tornado weather around here, right now. Big tree fell over in the driveway, most of it still in the high grasses so I was able to drag the top as close to the edge of the driveway as I could. Got to make room for that delivery truck. Of course, that's sometime between 9:00am and 12:00 noon. sigh..........waiting is very hard, sometimes.



What leaves that are left on the trees are the Oak trees, This wind has taken care of everything else. I'm watching the tree trunks, in the woods swaying violently right and left. The whole picture makes me uneasy. I've never really like wind. A gentle breeze is one thing, this, nope.



Zeus took me to breakfast this morning. What a sweetiepie. I'm not sure but I think that was my birthday present. The kids all chipped in and bought me a Kindle which I love. I used it on my trip and had no complaints about it. It's the newest model with the glare resistant screen and it looks smaller than the original one. Very easy to use.

OK....The furniture just arrived. OMG, it's so pretty. I'll take pictures as soon as it is all set up. We are still missing two pieces for the sectional and the TV BUT, I'm am such a happy camper. The room looks wonderful. When the entire family is here at Christmas time it's going to be so nice, everybody can fill that room with laughter and talking. NOW, THAT thought really makes me smile.

Ok, I'm off to do errands. The power is back on, the furniture has arrived, the wind is still blowing everything not nailed down around, BUT, I HAVE A RED SOFA. WHOOOHOOO!

:)Bea Who loves all the crayons in her crayon box.

  14. Happy birthday, Bea. I hope I'm not too late to the party, although I'm sure I'm a bit late to help christen the red couch.

    I heard about the power being out in several states today. I'm glad it is back on now, though. Sorry I'm late getting here, but I've not been able to sit for any length of time. Happy nearly belated Tea Tuesday, too.

  19. Ooh I am so sorry I missed your birthday. I am wishing you many happy days and lots and lots of candles to blow out.
    It was my third son's birthday the 26th. I was eating birthday cake and singing, does that count? I am so glad you had a wonderful day and your family made you feel special.

  20. We have had those strong winds too Bea. What wonderful cakes you picture there. You had 2 bunches of flowers? And a cake and some wine? I'm so glad most of your furniture has come. How lovely it'll look at Christmas. We are doing up our snug and it's looking better every day. I need 2 new 2 seater settees but they'll have to wait I think!
