Quite the Day...
Well, we've had a bit of sunshine, a little snow, even more rain, plus a touch of hail, but I'm having a wonderful birthday in spite of the crazy weather! The day is half over, and I'm still sitting around in my PJ's, relaxing. My sons are both here. They got me some fun gifts, a holiday favorite of ours, the Home Alone Blu-ray movies; Unnatural Creatures, a book of short shorties chosen by Neil Gaiman, including one of his own; and just for laughs, a Lord of the Rings Lego set, for the kid in me! It really did make me laugh, and I'm going to put it together and display it near my Lord of the Rings movie collection!
My husband cooked us all a delicious breakfast of fluffy scrambled eggs, bacon, and sourdough toast! He's the best! He got me a vintage Coronet magazine from the month I was born, and there's a great story in it by Billy Holiday about her life. He also got me some favorite DVD's! The original British Miss Marple series starring Margaret Rutherford; a Katharine Hepburn collection Morning Glory, Stage Door, The Philadelphia Story, and an all time favorite, Little Women; and finally, the Blu-ray Extended Edition of The Hobbit! I'm movie rich, and I can see a lot of cozy, winter evenings ahead of us. He's now in the kitchen preparing to bake a couple of birthday desserts. One of them is definitely Gooseberry Pie! I feel so fortunate to have my husband and sons at home with me on my birthday! I am blessed!
