I’m Taking the Day Off!

Today is my birthday and I’m taking this rainy, stormy day off!  There will be no cooking today.  I’m not saying how old I am but let’s just say I’ve reached a milestone with lots of papers to sign. 

I’ll be celebrating the day ~  wrapping it up with Bill taking me for dinner at one of our favorite restaurants. 

Happy Day to all of you and I wish you all the good that is wished for me on this day!

And remember, birthdays are nature’s way of telling us to eat more cake, so I’m off to eat cake…
