Happy birthday to me.

.

Yes, I took another trip around the sun this month. Nothing to celebrate at this point in my life, but I woke up to a (not so) subtle gift reminder all the same.

.

.

The large box was a present from my husband, from my very favorite store. They sell high quality handmade jewelry, pottery, art, crafts etc. and every trip we take there includes a round of oohing and ahhing . I rarely buy anything for myself as the prices make me swoon, but the husband makes a yearly pilgrimage… and who am I to complain? 😉

This year’s gift was a fabulous mesquite wood lamp with hazed copper cut out shade.

.

.

Both sides are inlaid with turquoise veins and it really is a lovely piece.

(If you’re wondering just how lovely? Here’s a similar lamp from the same company with much less turquoise on their website.)

.

.

Yeah. That lovely.

😳

.

.

Needless to say I love it, and shall enjoy its light for many years to come.

The original birthday plan was to hit my favorite restaurant for dinner, but Mother Nature said no by melting the snow and dropping a solid afternoon’s worth of sleet and ice.

Alternate plan?

.

.

Pizza and beer in the man cave…

.

.

With a stellar game of whip your husband’s ass with a double letter Q in ‘quay’, a triple score ‘quiz’ and an almost superfluous ‘zeal’ for a total of 102 points Scrabble.

A very happy birthday indeed.

🤣

  1. Best word I ever made was SCRABBLE, from centre bottom to bottom corner, double on the B. 153 points. But that was years ago, when I still had a memory. Now I look at a Scrabble board, and D-O-G looks like it is misspelled. Some days I just can’t win.

      1. You despise the first letter of both our names? How sad! At least you got to make QUIZ. I do not believe I ever got that chance, though my memory is not what it was. I did make a JOCULAR once, but it was not on a prize spot. JINX was another word I always wanted to make, but did not succeed to do.
