Birthday recap

I'm happy to say that I've been treated with some good lovin' this weekend.
I suppose the older you get the more days the celebration goes on.
I've been treated to birthday lunches . .. .
My two sister in laws Mary and Heidi invited me to Earls . ..

Since sisters from birth never did arrive .. .
God blessed me with sisters by love.

On Friday we drove to Seattle with friends and indeed we were by the Space Needle.
We were at the Key Arena where we went to a Sonics Basketball game.

This was a first for me. I had never been to a NBA game before and I was amazed at the constant entertainment.

These two brothers were quite the amazing contortionists.
They've appeared in the cirque de solei before.

I was quite properly entertained all weekend.
Oh and on Saturday we went to a wedding of a couple in love in their autumn years.
It was very sweet.
In the evening we went to dinner with friends.
I have no pictures of me at my parties since I am the one that takes pictures.
It's not like you never get to see me. .
Yesterday we went to Terrence & Bea's and lil' farm hand's house for the afternoon and evening.
Stuart and Karlee and lil' miss N and also my mom by love came.
We ordered in Chinese and enjoyed the delicious cheesecake that mom made.
So, it's all good. The birthday is done for another year.
Thank you so much for all the wonderfully kind words on my birthday. .
you all make me feel incredibly special.
Today, I'm whipping up another batch of practice paska .. .
I'm going for a walk .. . .
I'm paying some bills. . .
Doing some laundry .. .
It is Monday after all.
Pedometers on everyone ..
Have a wonderful day my friends.


  1. What a beautiful rose! I'm so glad you had so much love and excitement for your birthday weekend!

  2. All I can say is that you were properly spoiled !!!
    I'm so glad you had a nice week-end, it sounded like it was filled with love and laughter..and tiny feet !! smile

  3. That's the kind of celebrating I like extended over days with lots of different loved ones. Sounds marvelous. My pedometer is on and I might try to catch some photos from monster waves that are suppose to come in today...
    we'll see...

  4. Sounds like a great weekend! enjoyed all the pictures!

  5. Glad you had such a great weekend. Hope your week is as good.

  6. A whole weekend of celebration - they just keep getting better and better as you get older!

    They will have to start planning #50 early!!

  7. You have been richly blessed! Isn't it wonderful to know that so many people love and care about you.

    I agree that our birthday celebrations should last longer every year...! It's more about celebrating life than the actual number of our years and the longer we live the more appreciative we may be come (older and wiser, as they say!)

    I'm doing laundry today too....

  8. Sounds like a wonderful, extended birthday celebration! Birthdays are a good excuse to celebrate life...and how wonderful to share the occasion with family and friends. Have a great 49th year & we look forward to the big festivities next Feb.23rd.

  9. What wonderful birthday celebrations, Lovella! Next year that has to be topped!
    I still haven't had a practise run of the paska. I must...
    My pedometer is on and I'm doing laundry as well, among many other things. Have to get in my steps as I am feeling much better.

  10. Happy Belated Birthday! I'm glad that you had an enjoyable birthday!

  11. I'm jealous that you got to go to an NBA game. Basketball is my favorite sport. I think I've seen those contortionist brothers on Oprah. They were pretty amazing. I'm glad you had such a great birthday. You definitely deserve it. Don't do too many pratice paskas that you'll be sick of it by the time Leana gets here. Save some for our little party. ;)

  12. My birthday continues. Another special gift this morning from a friend.
    Sound like you had a great weekend.
    I've been to a couple NBA games and actually we had booked to be in Phoenix for John's 60th, only the birds were going out that night.
    That's our favorite sport. I'm a total Steve Nash fan.

  13. sounds absolutely delightful, and i am sure your deserved every kind deed and all that extra lovin'........blessings for more contentment, more peace, more health, more joy, more........

  14. I wore my pedometer all morning, then forgot to put it on my workout clothes. Just as well, Zumba would have burned it out. I don't think the pedometer counts that high!

    I'm sorry you have to wait another year to wear your crown. You look so cute in it and celebrate so well!
