Thank you my sweet friends for the emails wishing me a happy birthday. Thank you to the lovely ladies on MMP who posted birthday wishes as well. It's true that I am leaving MMP ...but I will miss the friends that I have made there, so don't be a stranger and blog with me!
The day was a quiet one, which was nice. I had to do some of this yesterday:
and will hopefully finish all of the website listings TODAY.
Mr Shabbyfufu came home early for a change, and we went out to a lovely dinner at a favorite restaurant called Papichi. If you can guess what Papichi stands for, I will seriously send you a prize....seriously! Hint....it's an acronym of sorts. In any event, the food is great and the service excellent. We took Fifi and crew there when she was in town and they all loved it as well.
UPDATE: I just wanted to update that someone indeed did guess what PAPICHI stands for, and will be the recipient of a lovely surprise that was mailed out today! I don't believe that LISA has a blog:
I never expect much on my b'day, as my needs are simple and when I do need something I usually buy it for myself. I got lotsa cards, some $$$ from Mom and my F.I.L., phone calls from my darling daughters, and from Mr. Shabbyfufu, these simple pleasures:
I did get this sweet gift from my sister, who had us over on Sunday along with some family members:
And a friend just stopped by unexpectedly on her way to work and brought me this:
My dining room table looks like this today:
So I had better get back to my website listings, as I am in the middle of a bunch of projects and need to finish up!
P.S.........This AMAZING and ever so GENEROUS gift just arrived from my dear Aussie friend Gail McCormack. You are a naughty girl Gail sending me all of those goodies and I will treasure them always! For those who don't know Gail....she is such a talented painter as well as a kind soul.....so please pop in and pay her a visit. You Aussie girls are truly the sweetest, and you make my day when I hear from you.
