I had a wonderful birthday today. Had lunch at the Palm Lounge at the Hotel Fort Garry and it was great. I've always loved this historical building which celebrated its 100 year birthday last year. I had my high school graduation ball at this hotel so it is apropos that I should be here for my birthday today. I had a nice salad with grilled chicken and Robin must have told the server it was my birthday so I had a choice of desserts. I chose crème brûlée and it was the richest, creamiest and tastiest crème brûlée I've had in some time. See for yourself. Isn't that so cute? Complete with "Happy Birthday" written in chocolate on the plate!! Asking for more would just be too greedy. But there was more to come.
I went home and about an hour later, the door bell rang and it was a delivery person from +Edible Arrangements with this lovely basket below which I took over to Sharm's and shared with my grandbabies.
Not much longer after that, the doorbell rang again and it was Sophie, delivering my birthday present from her, Bena, Mom and Karran - a 14K gold necklace with diamonds.
And of course I have to mention the mini iPad from Sharm, Sunita and Subhadra and their respective families (which I'll exchange for a unit unit with a USB drive) because I prefer that.
I looked in the mirror this morning and said to myself: If this is what 60 looks like, I'm perfectly happy with it! I don't want another 60; I'll be happy with another 20 healthy years.
So again, happy birthday to ME and thank you to everyone who emailed, called and sent cards. Much appreciated.
