Look what I found....

when I walked into work this morning.

Yep, today is my birthday.....oh, happy day! I started celebrating yesterday with a cookout with my siblings, my nieces and nephews, and my son and his family. JV was helping me with a project last night and he wished me happy birthday. Now, I walk into work to find my desk completely decorated (thank you, Laura), I already received a birthday phone call on the way to work (thank you, Keith), I'm having dinner tonight with my best friend (thank you, Charlie), and we'll celebrate again this coming weekend when it's my kids, grandkids and me. I think I like this birthday week business. Wish I had known about this when I was a kid. *grins*

I hope your day is as wonderful as mine is starting out to be.


  1. happy birthday! it finally stopped raining in taiwan, mostly, and we're all back to normal. hope you have a great day.

  2. What a fun way to start the day.

  3. Happy Birthday. What an incredible surprise.

  4. yep, i wrote that. it's amazing what a sparkley pink pen can do for your chinese characters :P
    the fabric is part of the other side of a reversible quilt my grandma made for me a couple of years ago
    i think she bought the fabric at jo-anne. there's a whole line of it but i can't remember the name.
