Birthday Followup

My birthday was really nice, and thanks so much to all of you who remembered! I got messages and v-gifts and emails and comments, and it all made the day so very wonderful. ♥

I took the day off and just spent some time with my husband, going out for coffee and scones and doing this and that. His hip has gotten so bad that something like going out of town for wine-tasting or looking at antiques was out of the question (too much movement), and he has to be ready to pick up our son from school at 2:20. But we enjoyed the relaxation! I bicycled in the afternoon (great weather), and then the family went out for Chinese food. Sunday, we took a family birthday trip to Apple Hill. That's a local growers' area in the foothills, with crafts and lots of apple-based foods. I bought almost 10lbs of Gravensteins there, so I'll have a good supply to stretch out toward Xmas. :D

Aside from that, I've been trying to get my Zombie-fest story finished for the Undead Big-Bang, so I need to get back to that. It's due *bites nails like a cartoon typewriter* tomorrow, so... yeah. o_O

:D
