My Birthday and Office Tree

Three short days after Christmas is my birthday. This year we went to Island Way Grill which is where I performed the wedding ceremony of my friend Christmas last 4th of July - a very rainy 4th of July. The food was awesome! I read this restaurant is partially owned by the ex-Buccaneer Mike Allstott.

My mom got the cake from publix and it was yummy with the whipped cream frosting (I am not a buttercream girl) and chocolate pudding filling between layers of yellow sponge cake.

The two photos above were taken on my phone because I forgot my camera. This is my first time of moving a photo from my phone to the internet. Feeling rather tech-ie this evening!

Final photo is the Christmas tree at work. I put it up shortly after Thanksgiving and took it down today. Felt like a Scrooge. It looks much better in person than the photo. It had red lights and then white lights that faded in and out - not flashing or blinking, slow fade. I already had grand ideas for next year so hopefully no one else will volunteer to do it, lol.

If your B-day is Dec. 28, it is the same day as my grandson, Donovan, who turned 6 this year!!! How cool is that? Your cake sounded yummy. Hey, I am a buttercream icing girl, and I just discovered it in a can the other day. I made a fresh banana cake with buttercream icing and it was such a hit!!! I had never seen it in a can before...but anyway...happy late B-Day!!!!! Your work tree sounded so pretty with those red and fading white better just beat them all to the punch next year...maybe I can remember to remind you like in October!!! Hehehehe...yeah, right.....

We ran an errand early this morning and saw this guy leaving the pond and making his way somewhere else. The Muscovy ducks, more about them ...
