Okay… I wouldn’t ordinarily make a big deal about my own birthday, but Kelly’s visiting family this weekend and so she’s not here to do it for me!!
Happy Birthday to Victoria! :-)
And what are we having?
Pizza Hut Pan Pizzas, Supreme & Hawaiian!
It’ll be scrumptious!
Did I go to a spa for a facial? Did I meet some girl-friends for lunch and great conversation?
Nope. Brian and I worked (yet again) on the soon-to-be paving stone walkway in our front yard! I hauled rock dust up the stairs and helped to move and re-stack some Allan Blocks so that they’re out of the way of our working area.
And get this… come 2:30 this afternoon all worked STOPPED so that Brian could come in to watch a BC Lion’s (football) game, followed closely by a Vancouver Canucks (hockey) game. What about me?!
Are you feeling sorry for me yet? Do you feel crummy that I’m ONLY having Pizza for my birthday dinner? Are you shaking your head at the fact the I’ve spent my day trudging in the yard and then being forced to watch sports all afternoon & evening?!
Well… take a look at this:
While Brian (and – okay – ME out of the corner of my eye) watch and enjoy a Canucks victory over the Toronto Maple Leafs (Go Canucks!) I’m busy playing on the internet, doing a little blogging, putting together an “Interior Ideas & Inspiration Sheet” for one of my clients’ bedroom and writing this post.
The fireplace is blazing… the critters are asleep around us…
We have some potato chips and dip to nibble on…
All and all… it’s a pretty darned terrific day!
And that’s not all!
Yesterday, Brian and I bought a beautiful Bloodgood Japanese Maple for our front yard! It’s still at the nursery, but we hope to have a spot ready for it next weekend… here’s what it will look like in a few years ~
An absolutely beautiful tree that’s red all year long!
I’ll take some pics and share when I can… while the tree we purchased is covered with fantastically vibrant red leaves right now, they may have all dropped by next weekend :-( I might not be able to show you how FANTABULOUS this tree will look against our Gloucester Sage (Benny Moore) house until next spring!! Oh well… I’m still happy!
Last night… we went for my REAL birthday dinner… a fabulous steak dinner at The Keg! Love it!! We had an absolutely wonderful evening!
And last weekend… Brian surprised me with the purchase of a NEW CAMERA!
Perhaps you can see the difference… the photo of my New Camera was (obviously) taken with my “Old” Camera. When compared with the photo – taken with my New Camera – of my “Old” Camera (confused?!) the background is somewhat blurry and my hand is darker. Okay… maybe you can’t see the difference, but I can!
I love my hubby!!!
Pizza has arrived… we each have a glass of red wine for my Birthday Toast - “Skol!” - I’m about to ask Brian to change the channel away from sports (enough for one day, don’t you think?!) and soon we’ll be cutting into my Birthday Cake…
So as you can see… things are JUST RIGHT here!
