Changes are afoot in the cafe! Oooh, I sure miss seeing my pretty books up there on top but maybe the page will load faster for all our visitors, now. Half the time I can't really see the food, so I'm just commenting blind. But I today DID see that Ruthy and the Seekers (who run this blog, too) have a collection out.
Happy release day! I'll just post that below, with a link, in case anybody hasn't ordered it yet. I know I did, and probably all of us working here in the cafe. But maybe there's a visitor today who didn't? Raise your hands! I know you're out there. 2.99... really, what is that? A latte? And look at all the book goodness you get! I'm sure the stories are fabulous!
I blogged about Impossible Pie here.Anyway, on to the meat of this post. (Actually, not meat. Just pie.) I'd completely lost track of the days and thought it was Thursday. Which, really, is pretty much like Wednesday and very much like Friday... except it's hubby's birthday!!
So, at ten this morning, my beautiful friend Barbara came over with a pie for my husband. I was a little confused. I'll always accept pie, no question, but why today? Why Thursday? Until I saw the card and realized...
With some strawberry sauce.OH MY WORD. The love of my life is turning forty seven! He's survived almost twenty years with me and keeps his sanity with six kids running through the house. (Ignore the fact he doesn't actually like to celebrate his birthday. It's not a custom he grew up with and thinks it's a little weird how Americans love birthdays. Just ignore all that. We love birthdays!!)
So, my friend saved me from completely forgetting my beloved's birthday even though we're all packed for a family reunion tomorrow, have baseball games scheduled in the morning, and hit all the dental appointments this week AND got the puppy neutered. Hubby wouldn't have been offended at being forgotten but I'm so tickled that Barbara reminded me... and she did it with pie! I can't think of a better or sweeter reminder. That's what friends are for!
Okay, we're off to celebrate with a fancy dinner. And maybe a movie, if he can find something he wants to see. He's like me, sort of a picky movie watcher, but we'll see what happens.
Until next time! (And don't forget to order those Seeker books!!)
