Birthdays

Again, thanks to all.

Just so you know, since so many hoped it was good:

My best work friend Donna took me to a lunch of chicken soup, Insalata Caprese, and conversation. Since it was at Cafe CaNole, she insisted I pick out two pastries for Duchezz and me to have for "birthday cake." Raspberry Napoleons.

I had a late meeting on campus--and yes, the chair brought cake, and birthday napkins, and they sang (which was not the usual trial since 3 of them on the committee are musicians/singers) [chocolate oreo cake, if you care]. I gave the leftover cake to the campus photographer to share with friends, which made her day. :-)

Duchezz got home late, but since requested dinner was French toast and sausages with a green salad with strawberries and kiwi, we were still done by 8. I then got completely absorbed in the DS game she bought me for a prezzie, so only half paid attention to Hell's Kitchen.

I'm not sure when I'll get a chance to try out the new Calaphon cake pans!

Then to bed. Where I had a dream with a certain guy in it. Who I haven't seen in what feels like a long time, feels like yesterday. (This is a rare thing for me--I dream often, but my dreams seldom include people I know.) Not an entirely good dream, but he was real, and present. And alive. At least in the dream.

And the strangest thing of the day was that I went through the entire day making myself a year older than I actually am. How did I find out? Well, the Duchezz bought me Brain Age for Christmas, and when I turned it on (after putting the little purple dragon to bed), the game said "Hey, Happy Birthday! You're___ today!"

So, a little animated Japanese guy hit me with a digital butter knife and I realized how old I actually was. I thought it was a little funny.

I am very pleased to hear that you got a birthday dream visit. I would have expected no less. :-)

I'm sure he was "real and present" in the dream. He had to be with you on your birthday.

I am glad you had a good birthday. I have often dreamed about my mom on major occasions. Gone in body is not the same as gone in spirit and dreams are a good way to let the spirit be seen clearly and heard and touched. I am glad you him with you too.

You told everyone 30 when in fact you are 29, silly.
Glad you had good day.
Hugs.
