A Bit of This, A Bit of That

Oh Sunday evening
how I usually dread you.
But not this Sunday as I have tomorrow off!
Woot woot!

It's my birthday!
I booked it as a holiday.
I'm a strong believer that
one should not work on their birthday.

A photo of Banjo.
No rhyme no reason.
Just because.

Friday was spent in Medicine Hat,
shopping with my friend Michele.
(Thank you again for lunch my friend!)

 A visit to Teaopia resulted
in a purchase of 4 sample teas.
Chocolate tea?

Now that sounds enjoyable!
(haven't made any yet ~ I will tomorrow)

There were some terrific sales on.
I was in need of a new house coat.
Michele was trying to talk me into
this 'sexy' little number... I don't think so Michele...

Saturday was spent puttering around the house all day.
I planted some sunflower seeds.
I hope they grow!

Saturday night was spent at Wayne's hockey tournament supper/dance
and being the designated driver for my son and his friend
and for Wayne as well.
I did not get to sleep until 2:30 am.

Needless to say, I was very tired this morning.
But somehow I got a second wind and cleaned my house.
No snoozing for me today.

Not like someone I know...

Tomorrow's birthday plans?
A lazy morning in bed,
watching a movie and 
drinking a cup or two of tea.
Birthday supper at Original Joe's with my boys.

And perhaps a tiny slice of birthday cake???

  37. A very Happy Snowy Birthday to you!! That shirt is perfect for Michelle. Green and butterflies! So innovative.

  38. Happy Belated Birthday, Catherine... a good friend is worth gold so glad you had a good time. Chocolate tea...?? I splurge once in a blue moon and buy some tea from Murchies in Vancouver... with shipping to the US its a bit expensive but SO delish!

  39. I hope your birthday was a great one! I don't like working on my birthday either...I learned that the hard way a few years ago!

  40. Happy belated birthday (although because of your next post, I'm worried!) But I hope at least your birthday was wonderful!

  41. Happy belated birthday, Catherine. I hope your day was wonderful and relaxing, and yes full of cake. :)

  42. Awe, sounds like a wonderful adventure. Hope your birthday was fabulous.

  43. Happy belated, my friend!
    I hope it was wonderful... and I also hope that that slice of cake wasn't too tiny...where's the fun in that!??

    How was the chocolate tea? Did it taste chocolatey? Kind of like a mix between tea and hot chocolate?
    I had a chocolate chai not too long ago at a favourite cafe ... it was a mix of the two and it was absolutely divine!
