I had a lovely birthday yesterday. A sweet card and gift from my boys, an insane number of good wishes from friends on Facebook, phone calls and cards from friends and family.
And a visit to the eye doctor, where I learned that, while not necessary because my vision is near perfect, a pair of reading glasses would probably help ease eyestrain at the computer. Optometrist: “When they were handing out eyesight, you were clearly at the front of the line!”
Since I had the day off, I spent lunchtime doing some leisurely shopping, picking out pieces for a super-secret stealth home decor project. Ssh! Don’t tell Dave!
And then spent the afternoon at one of my favorite local spas for a soak and massage, with warmed blankets, flickering candles and gentle sounds. In the evening, we feasted on bone-warming soup, fresh bread and pasta because — brrrrr! — it’s been cold!
The wine for the evening? I picked out this classy bottle in the beverage aisle at Target (say no more) because how can you NOT buy a bottle of wine called Purple Cowboy on your birthday?
