Today I was delightfully surprised by a brief visit from Rachel of Sliding Through Life bearing flowers for my birthday. Of course my birthday was last month, but hey, who cares, I'll accept gifts anytime, hehehe. Aren't the mums pretty and I had just the right spot to put them in. Thank you Rachel, you are such a dear, sweet and thoughtful friend and I'm glad we met through blogging.
Rachel also gave me this birthday card, and I wonder where she got my picture from as I don't remember posting this picture of me on the internet. She also brought me a bag of assorted truffles and unlike JD's bag of truffles, my truffles arrived intact and all there...no empty wrappers for me, but of course they were hand delivered by Rachel herself, on a cool day. As I recall JD's truffles had to be sent by mail and since they wouldn't transport well, due to meltage by the hot summer sun, Rachel was kind enough to eat them so JD wouldn't get a gooey chocolaty mess in her mailbox, hehehe. It was the thought that counted, and of course Rachel is always very thoughtful. I hunted and hunted trying to find Jamie Dawn's post about her birthday surprise from Rachel, but I couldn't find it so I was unable to link to that particular post.
Rachel couldn't visit long today because she was on her way to a family reunion and was already running late. She did take the opportunity to tell me that she called and talked with our mutual friend Carole of PEA's Corner and wished her a Happy Birthday because today is Pea's Birthday. Happy Birthday Sweet Pea! You and I share birthdays...sort of.
