Last week Mike and I both had birthdays, but our celebrations were muted because he had to be in Seattle overnight for a medical procedure. Happy Birthday Mike! The procedure went very well, which was a gift of course, but on Friday my sisters and mother decided more of a party was in order. They brought the food and presents and I set the table. It was fun to play with my pretty dishes without having to worry about the food, which was absolutely delicious, including my favorite, angel food cake. The weather, which has been swinging between rain, snow, hail and sun, cleared for the whole afternoon so the low winter sun lit up the pink things I chose for a ladies luncheon.
There was even a sunset, which is not guaranteed in the glumness of winter.. It was so nice to be the birthday girl for the 65th time.
