And Then We Had Cake!
As I mentioned in the last post, my birthday was this past Saturday. We had a scrumptious cake made by a downtown bakery. They specialize in specialty cakes. My husband asked me to check the cake I wanted and so I did. However, I didn't get it. When he placed the order, the lady said, "Why don't you get her this one? It's even better than the one she ordered." With this helpful hint, the other cake was ordered. It was a chocolate-orange cake. I have always liked those two flavors together. The candle was lit, I made my wish and didn't blow out the candle on the first try. No, it's not that I was short of breath, as my nephew surmised, it was because my chair was at an awkward angle for the task. That's my story and I'm sticking with it! I reckon that means I don't get my wish. We shall see. I think the idea is that the wish has the whole year to come true.
The day after my birthday was Mother's Day and since I'm a mother, I got more cake! No,not a different cake, just more of my birthday cake. I do love having birthday/Mother's Day celebrations. When I was a teacher,it was always Teacher Appreciation Week the week of my birthday. Then, it seemed the festivities never ended.
Next year, my birthday and Mother's Day fall on the same day. I think this will make it even easier for my family! You're welcome:)
