Couldn't Wait!

Birthdays or any other special occasion is always a reason for me to celebrate with my family and friends. Because my birthday falls on September 11, I have been less than celebratory since 2001. So I thought my day would pass with the usual feelings of sadness. MVBF who knows this met me for café last Monday and presented me with this rhubarb strawberry pie. Friendship! Friendship! Such a perfect Friendship!

  4. Yes, Meg, it's a Canon Powershot S31S. I debated between that and a Canon Powershot 700. Hope I made the right decision. Still in the box, tho; haven't had time yet to look it over and try it out: taking Spanish at Univ.St.Thomas and tutoring, too.

  5. Um, yum, happy birthday and I hope that pie means all things sweet and delicious comes your way this year.

    Today is the birthday of a VGF of mine. I think I'll take the lead from your friend and make her a pie today.

  7. Happy Birthday to youuuu...look, I even have my party hat on! Saw a red pie and immediately thought it was cherry. I've never had rhubarb strawberry, hope it was delish.

    No, that was a bad camera choice. You should ship it to me immediately! :) I've been drooling over the S3IS! That's going to be my next camera. Enjoy!

  11. Oh Very Happy Belated Birthday Kate!!!! Having it on a day with some horrible memories is pretty depressing I’m sure. What a great friend. Don’t you just love those little things our friends do for us? Sure does make life a little bit better. I hope the rest of your day turned out wonderful!
