The Birthmonth Continues
Yesterday my division at work gave me a birthday breakfast with lots of homemade baked goods and yummy treats and my boss gave me this cool-looking pink scarf that she crocheted with confetti yarn.
But today is the ACTUAL day. I am (she covers her mouth to muffle the sound of her age) years old. Gee time flies when you're blogging. I don't really care for odd years. They just SOUND older, don't you think?
Having had my party last weekend we decided to commemorate today with lunch at
...home of the best dessert EVER. If you ever have a chance, order the apple walnut cobbler with cinnamon ice cream, but plan to split it. You could probably eat the whole thing, but then they would have to fly you to Houston for immediate quadruple bypass, because this thing is not ashamed of it's most popular ingredient... real butter. My mom and I split the club salad with grilled chicken (instead of fried) so maybe just an extra baby aspirin will help keep the old veins flowing tonight.
I took a separate car because I had my monthly writer's critique group (as opposed to my weekly Wednesday critique group) at 2 at one of the critiquer's homes. That's always fun. They hadn't heard about the contest finaling (can you believe they don't read my blog???) and were appropriately impressed, encouraging me to go to Reno. And I had another chapter for them to critique. 7 pages of the 18 were written last night and this morning. (I work well under pressure.)
Then after that Torsoman and I took a nap. Now, I know this isn't Freaky Friday, so remind me next Friday to tell you what NAP stands for. Until then, feel free to guess.
So here I am now...blogging on my birthday. Birthmonth continues tomorrow with Torsoman's mom and aunt celebrating at where they have EXCELLENT bleu cheese dressing...mmmm...
