What, again? I did this, like, a YEAR ago...



Scent of the day: Guerlain Attrape-Coeur (many thanks to dear Daisy!)

Review of DSH Tubereuse to be posted later in the day.

The CEO gave me this very cool book by Alton Brown, my favorite Food Network Dude.  The kids gave me hugs.

Sara the calf is better.  We've taken her out to the little barn lot to hang with Davy and Beth.

It's supposed to hit 40 degrees today.

I'm wearing my new, very soft, tomato-red sweater.

I'm making cheesecake this afternoon.  Tilapia for dinner, mmm.

I've made it this far - might as well go a little longer, right?  Kidding.  I'm having fun these days.

My favorite cut flowers: yellow roses, deep burgundy roses, pale pink peonies, gardenias, tiny starlike daffodils, bells of Ireland, blue delphiniums, and lily of the valley.  I'm forgetting something, I know.  Oh, yes - carnations.  Love them.  Of the florist-available, only the white ones have a scent, and it's wonderful - spicy and floral and green all at once.

Am I reading this right and can say Happy birthday!

Why, thank you, Miss Redhead!

(My sister got the red hair in our family, and hers is gorgeous: a bronzy-coppery shade. Sigh. My daughter has beautiful blonde hair with a good bit of red in it, what we call "strawberry blonde," and I'm just ever-so-slightly jealous.)

Happy birthday, fellow Capricorn! (Mine was the 8th).

Mals86 said...

And happy birthday to you, Patty!

What did you wear?

I see I also inferred correctly...

This month is positively bristling with Capricorns, including Mr Bonkers (6th) and an elderly cousin who is 92 today!

Have a great day! : - )

Hey Mals, don't be even a little bit jealous (I'm not a natural - although I feel like one). ;) I have the right coloring for red hair so I'm enjoying the benefits.
Hope you had a great birthday!

You know something, I didn't wear any fragrance on my birthday! I was busy running around, preparing for a party with friends & family the following night. But on Sunday I wore some of my new Mitsy - and I'm liking it!

Ooops! Happy belated birthday! And I don't know the calf personally, but I'm glad to get the update... ;)

Mals86 said...

Thanks, all!

(I mentioned the sick calf in the Giorgio pseudo-review.)

Happy (belated) birthday!
