It's been an extremely busy couple weeks for me and I haven't had time to do a blog lately, but I urge you all to read this one. Both Rob and I volunteer for a few different animal/wildlife/bird organizations, and it is so rewarding, we definitely get back more than we give.

|Happy Birthday to me!|
My birthday celebrations started Friday when I got home from work and found a lovely orchid and card waiting for me from our friend, Patty. She had given it to Rob that morning for me. That nice surprise was followed by dinner with a few girlfriends at Dr. Generosity in Bloor West Village.
|Dinner with a few girlfriends was a great way to start my birthday long weekend.|
|Our cake! It was strawberry and it was yummy.|
|They were delicious!|
|Happy Birthday to us!!!|

|I have now been to Margaritaville in Orlando, Las Vegas and Niagara Falls.|
|I may need help drinking this.|
|Party like a Pirate.|
My actual birthday, Monday, was a rainy, dreary day, maybe that was a hint of what was to come.
It started off nice enough, I woke up to cards and presents and opened them while I had my morning coffee.
|I nice way to start the day.|
What happens next can only be described as a comedy of errors, though none of it amused me at the time.
Our plan was to go to the Victorian Garden Tea Room. What a good hubby to take me to such a girlie place. We get there, it's closed on Mondays. Disappointed, I suggest Kingsway Fish & Chips, as it's close to where we need to pick up my cake and the food is good. We get there, they are closed on Monday too.
Not feeling the greatest anyway, I suggest just getting my cake and going home. We go to the bakery. They have no record of my order. I feel utterly defeated. I had placed the order and paid for it the same time I did mine and Andi's cake. I had asked them to write "Happy Birthday Mrs. Robert Mueller" as a surprise to Rob, as it was my first birthday married. I had to leave the bakery as my eyes filled with tears. They gave us another cake and some free goodies as they felt so bad about the error. We went home and I went back to bed for another hour.
Rob, the trooper, went out and picked us up some Chinese Food and tried to make me laugh, which was tough at this point. I guess in the big scheme of things, all these little things aren't a big deal, I know that. I had a great birthday weekend, and I got to spend my birthday with my sweetie. And he's promised to take me for High Tea before the end of the month.

Footnote: Meadow only goes out in our backyard on a leash and harness. She is always supervised and I am happy to report has never killed a bird.
