My birthday stretched out for five days this year. To read about it, you need to click on the photos to read the captions.
June 29: Brad made his famous Caesar salad and he and Kate came over with Blue to celebrate an early Birthday. And yes, there was cake.
July 2: Then I celebrated with Harriet and Blue over Italian food complete with tiramisu with birthday candle,
and Harriet gave me this Magnetic Poetry Kit. Here is the poetry kit installed on my fridge. It took about 2 hours to do so!
Appropriate for a ?th birthday???
Later I went for a walk on the SJC Malecon
I love this tree. A certain beauty to the graffiti.
July 3: And this morning I had some special visitors.Yolanda, who escaped the camera, and Yoli, her daughter
Emilia, Yolanda’s pretty new daughter-in-law,
and Emilia’s sister Jenny,
They came bearing gifts. First, these gorgeous flowers,
and second, a very special guest, Emilia and Juan Carlo’s son, Santiago, who in spite of being suspicious of strangers, cuddled up to me immediately and remained in my arms for their entire visit. Holding a baby is the best gift I could have received as a birthday present.
Then this afternoon, I was served a wonderful Cuban meal of avocado, onion and tomato salad, roast pork, rice with black beans and fried plantains.
This was at Sergio and David’s house next door.
And yes, there was a third birthday cake with a very subtle candle.How old am I? No one mentioned it.
David always makes his own recycled birthday cards. Here is this year’s:
