I baked a cake for my birthday, too! It ended up kind of messy, but the taste is what counts! It was the best I could do, as I was still dealing with double vision at the time and my hands weren’t working that well. πŸ™‚ My vision is back to normal now!! πŸ™‚

This post is just a little late (Chris’s birthday is July 19th), but here it is!

Happy Birthday!

Decorations were designed by me (Kim). Simple.

We had our friends and neighbors over to celebrate with food, drink, and cake!

I baked the cake – very easy, and it came out moist and delicious! πŸ™‚

My birthday was … days ago!

Let’s see … I had a birthday … it was very nice … what more can I say? πŸ˜‰

I had ordered some cookies for my birthday (not really supposed to have sugar much, but hey – it was my birthday!).

Then I opened some gifts:

 

Pajamas

 

Sweater

 

Looks like another sweater I own, but this one FITS!

Coat

 

A new coat! i have one that looks a little like this, but again, this one FITS! Oh – note that the time on the clock is just after 12 which means it is just after midnight and explains the exact same smile I have on my face in every picture. I must have been on automatic. Check it out:

 

Emile Zola books – Pot Luck and The Debacle

 

Fall decorations

 

Yearly Christmas ornament

 

Headphones

 

Good – no – GREAT headphones to replace the ones that broke.

 

Time for cupcake:

After that, we went to sleep.

 

A couple days later, I set up a photo shoot with my cards and gifts (they sat very well for me):

Did you see the shiny object on the table there? Chris took me to buy a new watch to replace the one he bought me in 2000 which I liked, but it had gotten cracked when I fell outside of Central Park one day and landed on it. The day we were going to look at watches, it stopped dead. Now I had no excuse not to get a new watch:

 

Skagen watch

 

Isn’t it beautiful? It came with it’s own pillow and everything. It has a stretch mesh band, which my other watch had (not as nice as this, but it was stretchy and easy to put on which I prefer).

 

Very, VERY nice birthday!! πŸ™‚

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Newburyport vacation – post 1 of maybe 3 or 4

Newburyport vacation – post 1 of maybe 3 or 4

Chris and I went on a short getaway to Newburyport, MA. We stayedΒ (click here to see pictures of the house and the opportunity to rent it) in a beautiful 200+ year old house (built in 1795!) and we’re still thinking fondly of our stay. So quaint, so quiet … just lovely! πŸ™‚

More pics of the town to come, later!
