I'm older!! And I'm lucky!!

Well, my 57th birthday is almost over!  And I survived!  haha!  I had a nice day and a lovely lunch with a friend today and another tomorrow!  It really seems like these birthdays are coming faster than they used to!!!

Marly let me know that I was no-reply YET AGAIN!  I haven't checked for a while, so I guess I will have to check more often!  It just flips to no-reply for no particular reason...I've read comments about the same thing happening to others.  What a pain, but I think I have it fixed again now!

I have fun news to share!!!  I won Edgar's Blogaversary Gift Away!  I was so thrilled to win and it came at a time that I desperately needed a "pick me up"!!!  I was thrilled when I stepped on my front porch and there was a box waiting for me!!!  I quickly opened it and couldn't believe my eyes!  Oh wow!!  It was a fabulous box of San Francisco treats!!!!



There was a box of cookies, biscotti, etc from Dianda's!!  I've heard of Dianda's!  Then I opened that box--look at the gorgeous contents!!!  They were so beautiful and tasted even better than they looked!!!  (yes, I used past tense--they're gone and they were good!!!)   My husband did help me eat them, though! hahaha


Then, I found a bag of Ghirardelli chocolates!!  So yummy!!!  A lovely bag of Blue Bottle coffee beans that smelled so fabulous when I picked them up!!!  It's wonderful coffee!!  Also, a package of California poppy seeds--I hope to have my own little sample of beautiful California poppies right here in MS!  Finally, a precious little fuzzy black sheep!!!!  How perfect to receive from Edgar!!!  I feel so lucky  (and a little bit fatter! ha!)


Thank you for stopping by, and please come visit again soon!

Happy, happy birthday. Frances! The older I get, the longer I celebrate. Sometimes, I can get my birthday to last all week! And those cookies look amazing. Makes me want to do a weekend trip to the Bay...snacks! LOL

Happy Birthday Frances, what a lovely gift to receive. You are right that birthdays seem to come round quicker when you are older. I had the same problem with the 'no reply' issue and my settings would change automatically every 34 days.
