Happy Birthday, B!

I know, I know.  I'm interrupting my train of thought, once again.  There is a good reason for it!

Today, is my eldest daughter's birthday!  Happy Birthday, B!

Last evening, I prepared for today's celebration.  Once again, I baked a birthday cake, iced it, and decorated it.  Of course, I had presents to deal with, too!

This morning, I had trouble reaching my daughter, as she had a busy day planned, too.  Still, after leaving her a message, where I sang Happy Birthday to her, she returned my call.  We had a short, but nice conversation.

After doing some exercise, and other work stuff, I picked up a couple of Tim Horton's New French Vanilla Cappuccino Supreme cups of coffee and made my way to my real estate partner's home.  We needed to meet to review some paperwork.

Boy, is that delicious!  If you haven't yet tried one, don't wait!  Of course, the calorie content may restrict how many of these I purchase.  Maybe.  Hmmm...  I think I need to rethink my strategy!

Being near the cemetary, I visited Gordon's grave.  I stood there, wind blowing, talking with him and God.  After a few minutes, I had to leave.  The wind nearly blew me away!

It was time for me to head to work out at my friend's basement gym, anyway. 

After exercising, I stopped for gas and did an errand.  Then, it was time to head to my daughter's home.

Arriving at B's, two (2) of my grandsons came out to greet me and help me bring into the house, all that I had in tow.  Including the cake.

While we enjoyed our meal together, it was rather disappointing to me that all my grandchildren weren't home, this evening.  Oh well.  Such is life.

When we lit the candles and sang Happy Birthday, I took a pic with my daughter's cell phone.

At first, she thought the pic was blurry due to a camera problem.  At first, I thought it was a problem with the photographer, possibly shaking too much, since it was my first time using her camera phone.

After the moment, when B blew out her birthday candles, I realized that neither of us were correct.  It was simply a case, where there was so much fire and smoke, from having so many candles on the cake, that the pic wasn't blurry, but rather, it was smoky.

Here's B, along with two (2) of her sons, my grandsons, J and A!


Happy Birthday, B!

Believe it or not, even the smoke alarm went off!  lol  Next time, maybe I should bring a fire extinguisher with me! 

Oops.  Sorry, B!  I guess I shouldn't tease like that.  Just know that I love you and always will, no matter how old you become.


Until next time...
