Thanks everybody for the Birthday Wishes! Merman surprised me by starting that Happy Birthday thread. And nope, no cruise docs in the Birthday Card. Mother Nature did give me a show of strength though to remind everyone that it's not Spring yet.
I came home yesterday afternoon with little sunburn after a 78 degree day at the lake. This afternoon, the temperature dropped to 28 degrees, and an ice storm is still in progress. It took me 3 times as long to get home, 4 times if you count the minutes that I spent chopping the ice off the windows with a credit card. (Texans are ill prepared for freezing temperatures, let alone anything white that drops from the sky.)
So, instead of a nice birthday dinner with family, topped off with a huge slice of moist, rich Carrot Cake with Cream Cheese Icing I was forced to settle for Chocolate hostess cupcakes from the convenience store.
And NO, you can never miss eating cake on your Birthday! It's the BEST excuse EVER!
Chopping ice with a credit card!!?? ROTFL!! I agree about the never missing celebrating with birthday cake. In '98 the year of the infamous Montreal Ice Storm, it was my daughter's 14th birthday during the 8 day blackout. We managed to find a restaurant with power, and celebrated her birthday with a Jos Louis (Quebec version of a Hostess cupcake), and a sparkler candle. A memorable occasion!
Carrot Cake ???? ohhhhhhhhhh my favorite--- even for a chocolate lover. Especially for my birthday-- guess you will just have to celebrate another day-- or two or three
Cheers to you on your special day-----
I'm a firm believer in having a birthday "week" at the very least.....go out there and get that birthday cake! Happy belated birthday.
