It started out, on the day, with a cake baked by a co-worker - birthday people always get a cake where I work - and it was a good one: chocolate, with pudding and sour cream in the batter, plus chocolate chips. And cream cheese frosting! Yes, that was a big hit. Later, my brother got out of work early and picked up our dinners from a favorite deli in the next town. I got their mac 'n cheese, which is excellent.
The next day Debra treated me to lunch at our favorite brunch place. So much charm there
and even outside the place.
I had crab cakes! Deb had fancy French toast, with white chocolate and raspberries!
Later, two consignment shops - one with prices more like a tag sale, and I saw a metal angel with great personality.
One dollar. And a handful of linen napkins for three.
On Sunday, my generous brother picked up Nancy and Eileen and the four of us went to the city, to the art museum, which has recently re-opened their cafe. So, a nice dinner there, and then a wander around the place to see the paintings, and their annual Christmas tree festival.
That's Nancy in the plaid skirt. She was stopped twice and complimented on her attire. (red tights, too!) She looked so festive.
I wanted my picture taken with Vincent.
This is a modern art area on a higher floor. Looking down, we were able to see a concert by a local black church choir. Such singing! It seemed like each one did a solo - they were all that good.
We so enjoyed the day! And, I was successfully distracted from thinking about turning sixty. ;-)
