Birthday Flowers / Evening Yogurt

     My 65th Birthday began at 830am at Louie's in Kenai with dear friends Edna and Jaci. Edna said I couldn't complain about my age because she is 85! Edna is an avid reader and gave me "At Home on the Range" written in 1947 (the year of my birth) by Elizabeth Gilbert's Great-Grandmother Margaret Yardley Potter, who was a cooking columnist for the Wilmington Star. It is going to be a fascinating read with great recipes.
     Then off to work for several hours and 1pm lunch with Daedra - I still have a half sandwich left for tomorrow.
     When I returned to the office flowers were awaiting my arrival from Nadine and Owen (my sister and brother-in-law in Canada) - Dae had done the footwork and ordered them from Tammy's. You can see from the photos how beautiful they are.
     After work I had a little respite and then an enjoyable evening with the granddaughters who came over to visit while Dae did some practice rowing for a competition this Saturday in Seward. The girls and I took a two mile walk and had a treat at the Beary Yogurt.
     Many thanks to all my dear friends and family for the well wishes and greetings on this special milestone birthday.
     Love and hugs to all.
