Happy Birthday to Me!

Well, it’s been a lovely day so far. Sweet William was awakened at 4 AM by the LA Fire Department apparently doing a drill in front of our building (his theory is that they punish us because someone in our building has pulled the fire alarms several times as a prank), so he got up and baked me brownies. He took them out, waited for them to cool, and then tried one. Gooey inside. He put them back in the oven and rebaked. Still no good:

Because he loves me beyond all reason, he then threw on some clothes and went out to the store and bought me a cake. When I got up at about 6:30 and went out into the dining area, this is what greeted me:

(The picture is a little dark. If you can't see, there's a small cake, two mugs, a carafe of coffee, roses, and a card. The roses are from a couple of days ago. Since he is flying out to day and won’t return until Sunday, he has been doing birthday things for me all week.) He is the sweetest.

And just because, here is a gratuitous shot of Princess Viva:

Many happy returns of the day.

Thanks, everyone. It ended up being a really nice day. I had three different cakes. And flan!

Time to hit the gym. Well, maybe tomorrow.
