Happy Birthday to me!

The year I was born ...
  • Canada's population was 17, 815,100.
  • Milk was 25 cents a quart & bread was 20 cents a loaf.
  • The average cost of a new car was $1,822.
  • A new home cost $12,625.
It's my birthday today people. And that's me in the photo, on my first birthday. I'm closer to 50 than 40 now. Guess that means I'm getting close to Geezerhood, eh? Wow. I still can't believe it. I don't feel that old.
Yesterday my former neighbour bought me a beautiful birthday cake. I should have taken a photo of it, but we kinda ate it too fast. It was delicious. It had kiwis, mandarins, blackberries, slivered almonds and whipped cream on it. Delicious! We devoured it while we watched an episode of American Idol auditions.
This morning Adam (the guy I work for) actually remembered it was my birthday and said he plans to take me out to brunch sometime in the next little while as a birthday gift. Think we may go to the New Asian Village (9308-34 Avenue, Edmonton) because he hasn't tried their buffet and I've been telling him about how yummy their authentic Indian cuisine is.
Well I'm off to put start a hamburger stew in the slow cooker. Then I have a couple of projects that I want to get working on for my sister's wedding which is coming up on February 16th. Yikes! It's just around the corner ~ I better get busy.
