Birthday Report

I had a wonderful birthday. Thank you to everyone one who left good wishes in the comments here or emailed. Your generous kindness never ceases to amaze me.

Now, check out this gigantic coconut cake I baked.

(Don't tell me that I should have let Lefty and The Kid bake a cake for me. I looove to bake. I spent hours pouring over recipes before deciding on this one and I was looking forward to the baking for at least a week.) It is fabulously moist and scrumptious. It was also a huge amount of work and I think I got every single mixing bowl I own dirty in the process. But, oh, it is yummy!

I also received thoughtful gifts and all-around wonderfulness from my family. Best of all, this card from The Kid.

I think this is going to be a very good year!


  1. What a beautiful card.

    Coconut cake is my all time favorite cake in the entire world. My family hates coconut so I haven't had a slice since my grandmother died...she made the best!

  2. That cake looks yummy and the card is very yummy too.

  3. Did you make the family cleanup the mess you made?

    I "despratley" hope that you enjoyed your birthday.
