Another year old!

Well, it's Happy Birthday to ME! Yes, I am a Halloween birthday gal. I was born 65 years ago today, except it was on a Saturday and I was born at 12 noon. I always told my mom I was born in time for lunch!

We had a guiet day. I had a meeting at church with our pastor this morning, home for lunch, then to Joplin to have my eyes examined and set up cataract surgeries in January for myself. We ate dinner at a place in Joplin, called The Red Onion, a very nice place and excellent food. We shared a great dessert, Pumpkin Cheesecake, very rich, but very tasty. We did stop at a book store between the doctor's office and dinner, but neither one of us found anything we wanted to purchase. Then home for cups of pumpkin spice International coffee before a cozy fire in the fireplace.

I heard from our son in Germany. He called while we were having lunch to say Happy Birthday and see how we were doing. I had received a package from them on Monday, and waited until today to open it. I will post a photo tomorrow. The grandchildren called this evening with wishes for "grannie" and to tell me of their fun and games tonight. So my day was complete.

We have to be back in Joplin in the morning at 9 a.m. for DH to see the urologist and hopefully get a good report.

I hope everyone's day was as good as mine,
