Happy me…

I am celebrating my birthday that was yesterday…today.

This was delivered to me at work today!
Too cute and delicious.
Pineapple, melons, grapes
and chocolate covered strawberries!
Of course, the strawberries were the first to go.

I also had other things on my desk;
a box  from a wonderful bakery filled with
brownies, honey nut cranberry shortbread and
carrot cake cupcakes, a monogrammed bag, a change purse,
and gift cards for a donut shop and a gourmet olive oil
shop that also has gourmet pasta and other goodies.
The day before my birthday I was surprised with a flower pot and
homemade oatmeal cranberry bread pudding.

I have the best friends and I celebrate every one of them!

Birthday wheels…

This weeks Five Sentence Fiction prompt



Today is his birthday and finally it’s happening.
He has waited his whole life for this day.
He is getting his very own wheels.
At last he can explore the world.
He can hardly wait to ride down the driveway,
all the way down the street to the corner, and
someday around the block!

Tuesday, N is for nobody better…


Okay people, this letter of the A to Z Challenge is a stretch. But with good reason so bear with me.

I am a kid sister which means I have a big brother.
When it comes to big brothers I lucked out big time!
And today is his birthday!

He is 8 years older than me which when you are kids is a lot of years.
From what I have heard a lot of big brothers out there pretty much ignore their kid sisters.
How sad.

My big brother never ignored me.  Sometimes he took with him when he went places.
Like when we would sometimes go to this soda shop kinda place on Saturdays.
It was sort of like Arnold’s on Happy Days.  A place where the big kids went.  And sometimes me.

It was very exciting and lots of fun sitting in the booth having a coke or milkshake with my big brother and his friends.
Even though I usually didn’t have a clue what they were talking about it was great being with the big kids.
They were so grown up, you know!

I don’t know if big brother knew just how special those “dates” were.
But I am going to send this to him so now he will know.
There is nobody better than my big brother.

Happy Birthday, Bobby!
I love you.
Yes, you are still Bobby to me.

me and bobby

Today, I think everybody will understand that N is for Nobody’s better than my Big Brudder, Bobby.
