Birthday surprises!

Nothing to report regarding NaNo, but I have added one more idea to my PiBoIdMo list of ideas now totalling 22 on day 16.

Today when I got up I walked into the living-room and there were … um …  many…  pink balloons tied up by pink cord and strung in the living-room and dining-room. My husband got them put up as a birthday surprise for me.

My sister and I went to a wonderful craft fair this morning where I bought a few Christmas presents. Then later my family had a birthday supper for me at Dad’s … thirteen of us there … and lots of special birthday balloons, bouquets of flowers, cards and gifts. The one they all contributed to is an album full of pictures and memories. They had me crying from the start when I first opened the album. There were pictures of Mum and me; Mum passed away five days after Christmas of 1997. Each page was for a member of my family .. and me. So sweet and special. I love them all! Plus, we face-timed with my daughter who lives in Alberta, so she was part of it with us.

Today was a special birthday and a very special day. 🙂

Do you have special days like that?

Thanks for reading, and … Creative Musings!
