the question was asked ...

What do I want for my birthday ?

I don't know .. I don't need anything .. Can't think of a thing

A new camera so that my photos aren't blurry

There .. that's what I want

Do I need it ? No

I want Peace for my Birthday

For the year actually

I want to go on a Wine Tasting mini trip

A long weekend of tasting and driving through the warm part of my state

Maybe staying at the cute hotel .. that I found ... overlooking the river

Even though it's way out there in the middle of no where and not close

to any winery but its own

I'd like to go shopping without buying anything

And, if I do buy, it's something that I don't need

Something cute ...

For breakfast, I would like chocolate eclairs from Safeway.

Without the flowery stuff on top. Or, a cute bakery.

Mr. Boatman is taking me to the Ocean.

On my actually birthday ... that doesn't happen too often.

Rain or Shine ... I'll be there looking at those waves.

Maybe go to a good movie .. the week of.

Oh, and what kind of cake do I want ?

Something Chocolate but just a slice.

Not much else, that I need ...

I'll keep thinking .... I have a few days left

definitely you need chocolate for your birthday. definitely.

and yes, that hot seattle weather.... my sister lives in seattle and she suffered. and now it is here, instead, where we know how to cope. (she refused to follow my suggestion of shutting the windows and pulling the shades, but it works.)

happy birthday!

Happy birthday! I just had mine 2 days ago. I saw the ocean then. I'd also like a full year of peace. I guess after I retire would be a good year.

At my age, I just want to have Peace & Quiet with some chocoate, wine, cats and dogs by my side, the ocean roaring nearby ... not asking for too much am I ...

Oh and that new camera would be nice ...

I will see ... B Day is next Monday

I can't ever think of anything when asked that. I'll just borrow your list for next time.

Happy Birthday.

JC said...

It's the day before my 53rd Birthday.

I haven't thought of anything else I want .. or need

Just Peace ...

I like your birthday wishes, especially an eclair from Safeway. Simple, yet says it all.

Bee said...

Oh, I like your list! I'm already hinting for a new camera for Christmas . . . as my birthday is in January. I'm always appreciative of chocolate cake, too.

And... yay, I can post to your blog again. Thanks for changing it. :-)

There comes a time in your life when you walk away from all of the drama and the people who create it. You surround yourself with people who make you laugh. Forget the bad and focus on the good. Love the people who treat you right and pray for those who don’t. Life is too short to be anything but happy. Falling down is part of life, getting back up is living.
