Happy Birthday to me!!!

Is that rude to wish myself a happy birthday? It's actually the day after my birthday and I just wanted to comment on it. It was a nice, quiet day. Hubby had his first day back at work since his return from the desert. People felt bad for me that he went back on my birthday, but really, it's fine. We had a great time with him off, he got a lot done, and it was nice to be able to finally get back to a normal routine of waking up while it's still dark, having coffee and breakfast with my Beloved, sending him off and then spending time reading the Bible. Actually, because we haven't been in a routine, I had LOST my Bible!!!! Yesterday I was nearly frantic trying to find it and my journal. I had other Bibles, but wanted mine that I had notes in and my journal to jot down in!! So last night I checked in the car and thankfully (oh so very thankfully) there it was!!! So this morning was even better than yesterday! Anyway, back to my birthday......nothing earth shattering happened, I did lots of baking, homeschooled the kids and got some cleaning done. I even managed to get in a snuggle nap with my youngest son!! (don'cha love those moments???) My Pink Princess even helped me bake a carrot cake without realizing it was my birthday cake! Hee hee!! It was 4:30 in the afternoon before they figured out it was my birthday....fine by me, I was enjoying the quiet! We had a nice dinner of Chickpea Stuffed Shells and broccoli, and then we had a DELICIOUS carrot cake made by my little girl and decorated by my oldest! My Sweetie bought me sweets! Yum!!!! And then, after the kids were in bed, he and I played a game together (which I LOVE to do!!). So, all in all it was a very nice day! The kinda day I like, not too much fuss, but just enough so I know I'm loved! :) What a blessing!! Amazes me how very well God really does know me! :)

Count your blessings!

Happy Thanksgiving!
