A very happy birthday indeed - my day began with breakfast prepared by K, wandered through small moments of pleasure in good wishes extended by family and friends (both online and off), included dinner prepared by J and K and ended with cake prepared by J and S.
Punctuated by flowers...
Presents...
Spinning (see any previous picture of spinning with pale Beast - it looks just the same and I'm about halfway through now), and Cake:Blackout cake with ganache icing. J swore it had to weigh 5 pounds, but as you can see, he exaggerates. We only make this once a decade, but it was my turn to get it this time. S complained (a tiny bit) over having to put the almond slices on, but he managed to steel himself to do it.

And a friend gave me a miniature rose. I think I'm going to try planting this one in the garden - the Tiger cat insists on trying to eat them no matter where I put them in the house.

Thanks for all the good wishes!

Thanks! I think I do - squeezed in and among the Tuesday dressed as Monday madness.

Happy Belated Birthday!

Sounds like you had a great day (and that cake looks amazing!).

Thanks, I did! The cake is amazing - the frosting has 3 cups of chips and 1.5 c of cream... There's a reason we only fix it once a decade!
