A Happy 85th

We celebrated mom's 85th birthday today. We got balloons and cupcakes and some little things I thought she would like.

She got cards, which I read to her, little presents and a sweet bear from my brother Joe. So sweet. She loves little things like that.

I'm not quite sure she understood what it was all about. But she was happy just the same. So therefore, we're happy.

She blew her candles out with a little coaxing. Another wish to come true.

It's hard to believe another year has passed. It was a nice, gentle celebration.

In other news, our honeybells finally arrived. They were supposed to be in last week. Geesh. I'm dying to have one but I'm not supposed to. Oh, they look so good.

And with all the rush of being away last week and posting my 1,000th post mixed with all kinds of other stuff, I never did announce who won the "first" comment. I said it would be the second commenting after the first correct guess of where I was. How confusing is that?? I had to go back and read what I wrote to make sure I got it right. So, without further tardiness, I'm announcing that Thrifty Miss Priss was the first to comment! Wooooot! So Miss Priss, you'll need to send me your mailing addy. I have some goodies collected for you. And speaking of tardiness, I have yet to send out the prize for the OWOH winnings. Oooof.

Rainy and getting colder here. Yuk.

My Dad is going to be 86 this year. Hard to believe. Except for Parkinson's he seems to be going along strongly.

I hope to get to that age and still feel in the prime of my life! Somehow, for some reason, I keep thinking, "I'm going to live until I'm 88" -- no idea why that number, but sounds good to me!

Happy Birthday to her!
