They Say It's Her Birthdaaaay...

And she doesn't look a day over fifty(ish). :grin:

I had planned on saying something insightful, but I was bowled over by phone calls and visits today.

I received some lovely cards and e-cards (thanks, Mike!) and then some friends called and said, "We're coming over!"

There went my quiet weekend. LOL. We had a great visit though and it's all the more thoughtful because it was such a very long drive for them.

(right) A few of the presents my friends brought. I got six pots full of different herbs and this adorable cast iron duck /sprinkler.
I'll take a better picture of it later. It's really cute.

My finished manuscript is with my CPs, the house is clean, the dogs have been angels and my husband has doted on my every whim. It's been a great birthday!

Oh, and I think I have a title for the sequel to Touch Of Fire. I am calling it: Apocalypse Rising. I thought of it 30 seconds before I turned it over to my CPs. The more I roll it on my tongue, the more I like it.

And I love this story! It's inspired me with so much energy to write sequels and maybe a few short stories along the way.

I'll catch up on everyone's blog later tonight. Right now, I think I feel like having sushi with my favorite guy.

The birthday girl is hitting the road.
