"Happy Celebration"

Let us all celebrate whenever possible. My mom did at 85 and enjoyed every moment!
Her smile said it all! She was definitely the "Queen" for the day! She also looked like a million bucks and then some! We ate at mom's favorite restaurant and had a birthday cake back at the house. It was a lovely day, so we extended the celebration for as long as we could. SO mom had two desserts, one at the restaurant, so everyone could sing H.B. to her and then, again, back home. You can never sing and eat cake to many times!!!

Take a look at the "Queen Bee" on her Birthday!

                                                Just love this little lady.......always smiling!

                                       The hat was a gift and just perfect for the occasion.

                                    Delicious Strawberry creme cake with almonds and glaze.

Now I am back home and in the garden. I brought some outdoors in with these flowers from the garden. How nice to be able to cut flowers and enjoy the sweet aromas! I love this time of year.
Don't you?

Thanks for all the birthday wishes for my mom, she was thrilled that she was thought of!
Happy day to everyone, I will be back with some sewing and knitting WiP in my next post  :  )

Anyone reading any good summer books? I just finished "The Thirteenth Tale" by Diane Setterfield, it was good, a little unusual, bit of a mystery with twists and turns.



  1. *H*A*P*P*Y* * *B*I*R*T*H*D*A*Y*!*!*!* again to your Mom! It looks like she loved getting spoiled for the day -- and the cake looks YUMMO! Did you make it? A very fun post.. you're lucky to have your Mom still with you. ((hugs)), Teresa :-)

  2. Your Mom is adorable!! What a special day all of you had! And that dessert looks YUMMY!! xoxo Debbie

  3. She really had a royal celebration didn't she Robin, you very own Julibations! So glad you had a great day and the desert looks so good. I am taking Marcia Willet's The Prodigal Wife on holiday. I never get a chance to read fiction (too many medical articles to keep ahead of!) so on holiday I always take some books. This is the last of a trilogy she wrote. Enjoy the summer, it's fab isn't it.

  9. Hi Robin
    Love the photo of your pooch on your blog header ... that close up nose and biscuit - too cute!! I'm reading a good book at the moment "Fingersmith" by Sarah Waters. Love it when you can't put a book down : -)

  10. Happy Birthday to that wonderful lady, Robin! I read a while ago Rosamund Lupton's "Sister", it's sort of mystery-mixed with everything else, and I enjoyed it a lot. I actually read it almost on one sitting :)

    Wishing you a sunny June days, dear friend!
