8/2 Happy Birthday to Me!

I had such a wonderful day. This morning I arrived at work to find my office festooned with pink crepe paper streamers and the office full of balloons. What fun! My boss gave me a beautiful African violet plant, and colleagues brought all the ingredients for sundaes. We had brownies, vanilla ice cream, hot fudge, pecans, strawberries and whipped cream. Yum.

I left work at 4 to drive down to CSz to prepare for a 5:30 meeting with the volunteers. That was fun, especially showing off the new arena to Milwaukee folks. Afterwards we adjourned to Slim's where Jen paid for drinks and food. What a nice b'day gift. As well, she gave me a Parisian journal and some Parisian stickers that were made to go on steamer trunks. How cool! Bron, Pij, and Jools gave me some Cadbury chocolates. Cool again. Some folks from Milwaukee joined us. And two early arrivals from LA.

On the way home I spoke to Jill and the kids on the phone. I miss them so much.

But all in all it was a super birthday.
