Happy Birthday to me, Part 6

The Mail Edition. My aunt sent me a box filled with organic teas to keep me warm as the winds grow cold. SnarkyPants proved she reads this humble blog by coming through with one of my recently lusted after items -- the Body Shop Vitamin C capsules.

I love getting mail. Now, more than ever, because receiving packages is so rare. And both gifts were such a surprise, and so thoughtful. I am really very lucky.

Happy Birthday to me, Part 5

Dinner with my friend Mindy. It was nice to see her, and I was happy to receive her gifts -- a pair of DVDs (Friday Night Lights and Springteen and I). I'm a little sorry I had a Moscow Mule. I feel a headache coming on ...

Since Hanukkah is early this year, I'm proud that I had her gifts ready -- a pair of shirts for her and her husband from ShopHeart.org. His mom died a few months ago and in lieu of flowers, the family asked for contributions to the American Heart Association. I think these shirts are a nice, proactive way to continue honoring the lady.
