Day After Birthday..

I had an unexpected surprise or two:
At S&B Jean presented me with a gift: Knotted Tree "Spring Floral Sampler" to go along with my Fall Floral Sampler! I was so surprised! Thanks Jean! Plus, she baked a loaf of Strawberry bread which was very delicious!
I woke up yesterday morning to find an envelope marked "Mom", and inside, a cute kitty card & a gift certificate to Cranberry Cross Stitch (Deb's store, aka: the weekly venue for S&B).
I was floored by that! Em & I have been having "issues", shall we say, but she has been making a monumental effort to comport herself in a pleasant manner, and I greatly appreciate it. The pains she has been taking are truly a gift of their own, but a card & a certificate on top of that are more than I expected.
Greg took me out for lunch and let me go home after, so I was even able to take a nap.
We had grilled chicken Caesar salads. After my nap, I went grocery shopping, and Em had just taken a cake out of the oven: strawberry with funfetti frosting. yummy!
I made a bit of progress on Bittersweet Moon, but not enough to warrant a picture just yet.
I've been reading 'The Horse that God Built", and picked up "Mystic River" at the beginning of the week, and just received "Without Reservation" (about the Conn. casinos) and now 2-3 chapters in. I REALLY want to re-read Harry Potter start to finish, in preparation for the finale. (As I'm sure every one else has done!)
OH what's a girl to do???!!!
