Well, I turned another year older today, not that I admit to the numbers these days.
And I am very happy to still be around to celebrate!
Started the day with a skype session with my new grandson, Little Bebe in Canada.
13 days old, and weighs over 11 lb. already.
His little chubby face is just the sweetest thing, and he rolled his eyes at the camera for us,
prompting squeals of delight (and that was just me!)
The little family have already hit the Mall.
I am most impressed with this double buggy arrangement, with big brother in front and little bebe up top. Petit Garcon made train noises, as they chugged along together.
I hit the Mall too with my sisters, for the usual celebratory lunch and shopping excursion.
I was very spoilt all day, with gifts from far and near: I love them all!
Look at my Peri Cutten ombre silk scarf, and arm party pile of bracelets.
And a white cardinal - both apt and unusual.
Everybody is doing pastels this year.
I love a paper doll book, and here is another for the collection.
Hits both spots with me: art and dress design.
I have always been intrigued by Frida Kahlo.
Made myself a good old-fashioned sponge cake birthday cake.
Very rustic presentation, but it's my birthday so I do it my way...
I'll see you all later ...
