Birthday Reading

This week The Hunky Hubby was kind enough to get a book on my nook for me on my birthday. Even though the nook was itself an early birthday present. He also gave me a break to go read and I had a lovely time reading The Red Pyramid by Rick Riordan, fabulous author of the Percy Jackson books. It was all about Egyptian mythology as you might imagine and quite fun. I also got to eat soup and drink a mocha all by myself, just me and my nook, which was glorious. Except for the part where I lost our cell phone and our check book in two separate stores on the same day, but besides those early excursions into dementia, it was a good book and a wonderful birthday. Completed with cupcakes baked by 3 sweet little boys.

And what did my little boys get me for my birthday… Six crayons lovingly wrapped, a picture of the solar system, and a jar containing two living spiders and a couple of random legs that had been a spider the night before. They get hungry you know. Can you get much sweeter than that? I don’t think so.

I promise you a crazed animal, a concussion, and a kiss in every single book...you're welcome!

    Did you find your phone and check book? There are so many things to keep track of, a personal assistant would be very handy for those of us who have dementia lurking and ready to pounce at any moment (actually, I think we are in the majority but we try not to let on).

    I love the jar of spiders and spare parts. What a thoughtful gift to a woman who has an extraordinary care for the whole arachnid family.

    Love to you.

    Oh dear, the spider jar… I wonder if they are trying to help you or hurt you? 😉
