"To Me"

Today is my birthday.
I think I'll make a cake.
Mix and stir, stir and mix,
Then into the oven to bake.
Here's the cake so nice and round,
I'll put icing on so white (chocolate).
I'll put on all the candles
To make my birthday bright!
Happy birthday to me!

My loving Daughter #1 asked me what I wanted and today they came in the mail....... 

I'm in love with my new boots!
Now I can get down and dirty around the creek area of my yard.. the snakes will have a hard time getting to my ankles.

  Mr N. asked me what I wanted for my birthday also, several times this past month.   I'm not one to want diamonds or pearls but a 6ft ladder would really make me happy.  I'm so tired of using a step ladder or a dining room chair to reach high places.  He brought this wonderful ladder home for me.
A few weeks after the ladder he said, "I have to get you something nice for your birthday".. what else do you want?
A Pink Rose bush, a live rose, not a bouquet of roses!
Then he bought home this lovely Rose bush and it has taken the place of honor in my new "Rose Garden". ( I do have three rose bushes there already)
But now I can call it my "Rose Garden"

Then one day he came home with a new cell phone.
The AT&T iPhone.   After using it for about a week I found I really love using this phone. I can download books to read, play games, the apps are too many to mention, It has iPod included and can bring in radio stations from across the   globe. I have the internet and can bring up my email, my blog and facebook.  The best part, "Face Time".  I can dial my daughter or sister around the world and we can talk "Face to Face"!  It's really a wonderful little gadget!

 I also now use my iPhone4  to take photos.. have not taken my camera out of the drawer for several weeks now.  All the photos I post on my blog are from my iPhone.... it's not the same as the expensive cameras some of the bloggers use, but I can't afford such a camera anyway.  The nice thing is my iphone is always with me so I don't miss a shot.
Here is the birthday bouquet  my girl Gina sent this week.  Photo taken with my I phone.
(I think they need to find a new name for these new phones.. because their more than a phone. They  more like toys)

Birthdays have never been special to me but this year I feel wonderful.  God has given me 6 more years than the doctors predicted and I'm thrilled.
 Blogging has given me another way to make some  new friends. Although we have never met face to face.. we are enjoying our new found friendship. Thank you to all the bloggers out there who read my blog and leave such sweet comments.
Thank you Mr. N. for always being there.  Thank you new and old friends. Thank you to my girls for all they do for me and my grandsons who I adore, and to their dad who takes such good care of his family.  To my son who is always in my heart.
My new daughter-in-law and new granddaughter, I'm so happy you joined our family.  
To all who have never left me no matter my quirks.
A BIG thank you to my sister, my friend since birth.
You all have kept my smile glowing.
Thank you Lord!
I love you all
It's been a good year

Sandy, Happy Happy Birthday to you! I'm so glad you're feeling well! Your dear husband is such a sweetheart, love your ladder (you and I are alike that way, give me something practical) your rosebush (for continued blooms) and your IPhone (the gift that keeps giving--by the way, it takes amazing photos!)

I also love your CAKE. Yum. Here's to many, many MANY more years!

What an amazing birthday you had. My response is always to celebrate and it looks like you did. Thanks for stopping by and yes, the rv on the header is the one that we travel in. We've been rver's for over 30 years. It was always fun when the kids were little and now the grandchildren enjoy it too.
