A lovely birthday gift arrived from Edgar yesterday. Aren't these just amazing looking chocolates. They taste twice as good as they look! Luckily I snapped this photo immediately after I opened the box because several of these beauties are long gone by now. Thanks Edgar for a wonderful surprise.
Pet snap today is of Alix "helping" us with the vinyl siding for the house. She loves to be up on anything. She seemed to have a rough start to the day yesterday. I think a lot of it has to do with the excessive heat and humidity we've had this week. She's doing better today, eating more and jumping around in her usual way. One day at a time, I suppose.
Couldn't have asked for a better birthday. A nice chat on the phone with my mom and dad. A chat the previous day with my friend Jean in NC. I am thinking of you my dear friend. I know you're having some hard times lately and this is not the public forum to discuss them. I just want you to know that I pray that things get better for you very soon. Many, many lovely cards, letters and e-mails from friends around the world.
Overall, being surrounded by the people and animals I love in the comfort and security of my own home was much better then any shopping spree.
