Nick came by a little after noon with two cakes, a card, lovely espresso cups, and good conversation. Nick cooks. Nick bakes. Nick has the right equipment. Check out these cakes.
Then later in the afternoon, Ms M and Roscoe came by bearing gifts and flowers. While she was here, Esther, Marsha, Rachel and David came. At the end of the day there were two Davids in my house. Both lovely men. My friend and neighbor supplied and cooked for the party. And the food was great. There were five dogs visiting my two, so it was a wonderful dog party as well.
I woke late to cold and rain. I don't remember ever having bad weather for my birthday. It's one of the nicest things about having an early June birthday. I began the day cursing the weather until I found my glasses. Then Nick called and nothing could ruin the day. It was perfect in every way.
To those of you on twitter and facebook, thank you for the lovely birthday wishes. I have never had so many people wish me happy birthday.
