Happy Birthday to Me!  
It's been a lovely day! I took the day off, and HalfshellHusband and I went antiquing for a bit (mostly just looking at all the bizarre things for sale), and went to a coffee shop. Then I went for a bike ride (gorgeous weather), and we did presents and cake early so Lauren could run off to a school thing. The sounds of workers ripping the roof off punctuated everything, but it was alllll good.

My LJ birthday started yesterday, with greetings from legion11 in the Czech Republic to let me know that the calendar had reached the 19th in Europe already!

I've gotten birthday posts and messages from so many of you today- devon99, trinipedia, realpestilence, drvsilla, eponin10, roguebitch, digitalwave, tsuki_no_bara, tuesdaeschild, deadbeat_nymph, and heliokleia. ♥

Plus, lovely v-gifts (cupcakes! Balloons! Kittens, orchids, and presents!) from deirdre_c, maerhys, weesta, kebab1806, tuesdaeschild, heliokleia, dearpeterxoneal, and clair_de_lune. Thank you all for thinking of me, especially at such busy and sometimes difficult times in your lives. *hugs*

In the few hours left, I'm looking forward to reading the Michael/Lincoln story clair_de_lune wrote for me (!!! Whoohoo!!!), and possibly answering phone calls from my family that will probably start as soon as I get caught up in something else.

Thank you, everyone. You are the best! ~ ♥ ~

Thank you! Oh, that is a gorgeous autumn cake. Yummy!

Glad to hear you had a lovely day, sweetheart. A day off was more or less mandatory, I think, especially as you spent the day doing the things you enjoy. :)

And for my small contribution you're very welcome.
*hugs*

Oh, it was nice. And it's hard to get time off with HSH, now that we have kids, so even better.

Thanks so much for your gifts and remembrances. They were so sweet!

Re: Happy belated birthday!!
Hee! I get the notifications, but my follow-through is prone to lagtime (and it's always a day late for anyone on the other side of the world). Especially this year-- I R made of fail. *cringes*

Thanks for the beautiful and delicious-looking cupcakes. I want them allll!

Belated Birthday Greetings!

Thank you, Pheebs! It was a good day-- Octoberlike, even. It's been a long time since it actually felt like "Fall" on my birthday (stupid heatbox weather), so that was really nice.

♥ to you, hope things are going well. :D

Happy slightly belated birthday! *hugs!!!*
The Coalition For Disturbing Metaphors: Yay!halfshellvenus on October 20th, 2011 07:27 pm (UTC)
Thank you! And boy, do I know how that goes. I've been late for almost every birthday this year, and it's all preoccupation and not getting onto LJ as often as usual.

And I'm not buried under FT work and grad school all at once. :0

Have a nice weekend, my old friend!

I'm so sorry I missed saying happy birthday, sweetheart! I'm terrible with birthdays and ljs, BUT! I hope the day was beautiful and even though it's in the past, I say you remember yourself and do something special for yourself today, too! =D

It was really nice, and very Octoberish (which is rare-- often, it's over 90o on my birthday, in this stupid climate).

Thanks for the birthday wishes! :)
