    What a pleasant Saturday with friends and family

    Today was to be the family celebration of my birthday-love being queen for a day, or as long as I can stretch it. So (because I've wanted it done for months and this was his gift for my BD) last night DH & I shampood carpet in great room. Overnight it dried. Today I vacumned it and we put all the furniture back. Arranged room for my BD dinner. I cut flowers for the table-roses smelled great. Then friends and family started arriving. We laughed over our hand work for about 3 hours(I was tying and cutting threads from quilting). DH & DD fixed dinner. Very enjoyable dinner and conversation. All have gone home & I'm just about ready for bed. Great day

    Glad you had a happy birthday doing what pleased you. I really do "get it" about being thrilled about what other people may not. I am "celebrating" my husband repairing our woodburning stove in the winter living room. Now I can clean the smoke/sooty stained walls and ceiling and repaint before winter sets in. May your roses continue to bloom and smell sweet...and may you have many more "happy birthdays" with your family and friends.

    Happy Birthday - it is nice that you were able to do what you wanted rather than having to do what others may think you should do! Little things in life are the important things.

    Happy belated birthday! Sounds like you worked hard for your birthday! You should've been Queen for a Day! Don't know if you're close to my age but does anyone remember the show "QUEEN FOR A DAY"?

    Now you have done the carpet so Denai and Sherry and Daisy can play in there and smell all the good smells and chase the cats as soon as they come out. I was at that dinner and it was WONDERFUL
