Birthday Celebration

I am happy to report that Mike got over his disappointment over the duplicate shopping trip for a birthday present and decided to congratulate himself for knowing exactly what I would want for myself. We celebrated my birthday by going out for a fancy dinner at a restaurant right here in Jericho, Vermont.

Mike ordered a beef filet after an appetizer of prosciutto wrapped asparagus with blue cheese. I ordered a duck breast in pastry that was served with mashed parsnips and broccolini. Our waiter suggested a Plungerhead zinfandel that worked beautifully with both meals. The meal was exquisite.

I don’t feel a day older either.

I have a theory that after a certain year you start going backwards...works for me.

Well, it all sounds just heartily satisfying and enjoyable! I'm glad Mike's feelings healed . . . he DID do SO well!

Not feeling older is pretty good! Wonder if it's the parsnips and broccolini?

Good to hear all is peaceful again in Vermont.

Well done! SOunds delicious!
I like being older and wiser. That's the theory, anyway!
Always surprises me when my kids know about stuff that is new to me!

Greetings from Cottage Country!

Happy belated B-day, Olga! Which one is it? I only hope you're older than I am! I had to laugh about poor Mike's squelched b-day surprise. I think it's a gift that he actually knows you so well.

Happy Belated Birthday. Glad Mike's feeling better. The duplication was a sign that he really knows you. Nothing bad about that.

Happy Birthday! I have to tell you I loved our four days in Vermont.

Happy Birthday! So glad you had a nice evening together.
One year, my husband gave me a gorgeous suit for my birthday. Three months later, he gave me the exact same suit for Christmas! We laughed a lot about that one. (After that he stayed with gift cards!)
Peace,
Muff
