So my birthday was last Friday, but I've been too busy to post about my fabulous 36th! I woke up to cards from each of my sweeties. I went into work late because I was so tired from the trip and got home so late from the airport. It was raining, but I didn't think much of it. After working for a bit and grabbing some lunch from the cafe, I found out from my co-workers that it was starting to get icy and the freezing rain was starting to pile up into piles of slush. They sent us home at 3 PM. I left about 3:30 and I didn't get home until 5:30 PM. My usual commute is only about a 1/2 hour. Some parts of the drive home I wasn't even going 5 MPH! I didn't mind though, just took my time. DH made me a great dinner. Since it's Lent and my birthday fell on a Friday, I told DH that I didn't want to go out for dinner, because we wouldn't be able to eat most of the menu. DH read my mind and bought my favorite Mediteranean crusted salmon fillets from the grocery store. We also had brown rice and roasted brocolli with garlic. Also when I got home, DH had bought me yellow Gerbera daisies in a ceramic orangish-red pitcher. It was wonderful. What was so funny was that DD asked me last week what kind of flowers I like and I remember saying, "I like daisies, I like mums, I like daisy-mums." Gerbera daisies remind me of daisy mums. I also was sent a bouquet of miniture roses from friends. Both my parents called to wish me a happy birthday. For dessert we had a carrot cake birthday cake! I love carrot cake the most!!! Even with the bad weather and the long drive home, I really couldn't have asked for a better birthday!
