Two in One

Today is Liberation Day in Kuwait and a day off from school and work.  It's also my 46th birthday.  This year we have a 4-day weekend, then back to school on Tuesday for a short 3-day week.  That's like two gifts in one.
It's been a quiet day. I got my wish for better weather, so hubby and I were able to walk for an hour this afternoon, and Jingles was able to do some exploring on the balcony.
Rather than having birthday cake, I baked up some sugar cookies with sprinkles.  So yummy!
My 13-year old son downloaded sheet music and played the birthday song for me on his saxophone.  He did pretty good for his first try.

Thanks to everyone who sent birthday wishes my way.

Wishing you a wonderful day.

I didn't know it was your birthday until I read this. Happy Birthday!! I would have liked to have held at 46, but it will be my 48th this November. :)

Hope you have a wonderful day of celebration. Birthdays are big deals at our house.

Wishing you many blessings,

Dearest Tammy,
Hah, a serenade by your youngest on his saxophone!
Bet that made both parents happy & proud...
The son of my best friend in the Netherlands plays also the sax. Not professionally but as a passionate hobby.
Glad you could walk!
We will do that now too...
Love to you,
Mariette

PS My best friend and I are Friends as long as you live... More than a ruby anniversary...
