Birthdays and Celebrations

Chris and Birthday Flowers
Tequesta, FL
October 15, 2022

 Chris celebrated her birthday yesterday and was amazed and humbled at the outpouring of love for her. 

The day began with the unexpected arrival of a large and beautiful bouquet of flowers from our children. It was a total surprise and really brightened her day. 

The day ended with dinner at a local restaurant with friends, one of whom was also celebrating a birthday yesterday, and then coming home for a piece of cheesecake. Yes, for those of you in the know, I actually made her favorite cheesecake to celebrate the day. Sadly, however, it was my first true baking experience using the oven here in Florida. What did I learn? It bakes a few degrees too hot and so the cheesecake was too brown because it was a bit overcooked and because of that is had a crack the size of the Grand Canyon in the middle. 

But it tasted great!

And so, it was a Happy Birthday for Chris!

BTW, I received the secret for longevity in a birthday card--celebrate more birthdays! People who live longer have more birthdays. (duh?)
