A Day to Celebrate

I always enjoy finding ephemera with my birth date on it.
It sounds as if a bit of celebrating may have occurred almost 100 years ago.

I plan on celebrating with a bonfire and a big pot of moose chili
with dozens of friends that are going to brave the 100 mile trip to our place. (and just a spot of Irish whiskey may be figured in  just so I can honor this lovely ephemera) Breakfast tomorrow will be homemade crumpets that my son's girlfriend has perfected.
Yesterday we discovered that there was enough snow to cross country ski.
A perfect day for it.

And I started off my birthday soaking in the jacuzzi with epsom salts.
My dear husband just felt he HAD to document it.
Along with buying the satellite dish that allows me to enjoy internet out here now  he also found a really nice antique book from 1893 with loads of wonderful images and writings
I guess can forgive him for disturbing my relaxation in the tub!
He really is a sweetie!


  1. Happy Birthday Dear Kim! May your birthday be bountiful in every way. Thank you for calling by and your kind words. pen x
