Birthday and a break!

It was my birthday on Sunday and I got kind of spoiled.


 It started on Friday when I found this box sitting at my spot during our morning meeting at work.  It was full of delicious muffins to treat everyone.

 At lunch that day we ordered out and someone treated me to a wonderful salad, and someone else brought in these cheesecake bites.  Yum!


Bob took me out for supper at our favorite restaurant that night.  (lots of eating that day...)


On Sunday, I was on call and we were short nurses.  I was scheduled to work and 2 of my co-workers agreed to work 12 hour days to split that shift so I didn't have to go in! I was able to go to church and got lots of greetings and hugs there.  I also got a few cards, and had gotten some in the mail too, including the card on top, which was from one of m blog friends - Arlene.  Thanks Arlene!
We had a quiet and peaceful day with greetings from each of the kids.  Perfect day!

I'm taking a little break!  I have too much to do and not enough time to do it.
I hope all my United States friends have a nice Thanksgiving and I will see you soon!

Happy Birthday Mari!! It certainly sounds like you had a wonderful day and it was so nice of your colleagues to take on your shift for you so you could have a day to enjoy. I love the photo of the cat. It really cracked me up. Enjoy your break and have a wonderful Thanksgiving.

Happy Birthday Mari! Why do I always get back to your blog just as you are taking a break! I've just returned from 11 days in Arizona.

Awww...I missed your birthday. I'm glad you had such a wonderful one with all of the cards, phone calls, goodies but my most favorite gift you received was from the two nurses who divided up your shift to give you the day off! That brought tears to my eyes. Happy Belated birthday and enjoy your break!

Belated Happy Birthday. Sounds like it was a good one.
Enjoy your break.
P.S. That cat in the last picture intrigues me. He (or she) looks humungous.
