Birthday Last Week!

Hey neighbors!

Well last Thursday, the 5th was my birthday.  My husband took me out to lunch for ribs!  We had cake at lunch, but didn't open gifts until 10:00 pm when my son got home.  We had a late evening birthday party!

My youngest found me a really pretty dress by Appleseeds.  It is so nice!  Then my other daughter (16) gave me a blouse from the same company.  They are both  very pretty.  I also received a nice ceramic water fountain from my 26 year old daughter.  It is a log cabin with a water wheel.  My 28 year old daughter gave me fudge.  My son (18) found a new bedspread for my bed.  Love it!  And my oldest son purchased a new treadmill.  Then they all went together and bid on a Chautauqua desk on eBay.  I had one several years ago and had to sell it when we went on the road.  They found one in really good shape and bought it for me.  So far I have only seen a picture of it because the auction ended on my birthday.  It is on it's way now.

The Chautauqua Desk is really neat because we have visited Chautauqua.  It started out as a Christian retreat.  I first heard about it in a Pansy book.  She is my favorite author from the late 1800's early 1900's.  She actually went to Chautauqua and wrote about it in her fiction stories.  So, when I found one of their desks years ago, I purchased one.  Now, I am going to have one again.

Aren't my children GREAT!

See you soon At the Fence!

Sounds like you had a delightful birthday. My theory is that celebrating a birthday in style should take at least one week - so, happy birthday week!
