since you asked

Thank you all for the birthday wishes. They were much appreciated. Since some of you asked how I spent the day I thought I would tell you.
First off for those that wanted to know how you missed that post, there is a simple explanation. I wrote it on Sunday and it said it was scheduled. My posts are always scheduled for 7 p.m. (have no idea why I picked that time) Any way, around 8:00 last night for some reason I went in and checked and it had changed to a draft. Needless to say it went up late. Oh well.
Well, how I spent my day. I had to work so that's how most of it was spent. My son came to see me at work and brought me a rose.

Wade asked me what I wanted and I had absolutely no idea. I remembered some time ago I had put a few small items on my amazon wish list. I sent him the wish list and he bought me all 5 things that were on there. It included a game for the wii, a quilling kit and 3 different camera accessories. Now I'm just waiting for those to arrive.
On Sunday Wade had asked me what I wanted for dinner on my birthday. I told him I didn't care, whatever he wanted to cook was fine. It was my birthday and I wasn't going to cook. I decided on chicken stir fry but then we didn't have all the ingredients so my birthday dinner ended up being a fried ham sandwich. Worked for me so long as I didn't have to cook.
And that sums up the exciting day. Yeah I know not very exciting but it was a good day any way.
This last picture is one I took of my rose sitting in front of the sliding glass door in my dining room. There was already a ton of light behind the rose so I adjusted the levels around it so that you couldn't see any of the door. I upped the contrast on the rose a bit and I have to say I think it looks pretty good.

OK this is two days in a row now. This was scheduled to go up at 7:00. Now at 8:00 it's listed as a draft. Is anyone else having this problem?


  1. I think you had a great day. I'm sure one of those five things you wanted from Amazon is from Duke. I'm sure of it.

    I love the rose. How very thoughtful of your son.

    I'm not having a problem with things saving to draft. I hope this doesn't last long for you.

    Have a terrific day. My best to Duke. :)

  2. Happy birthday--it sounds like a nice day. How sweet of your son to take you a flower:)

    I did have the draft problem the other day. It was the first time for that to happen for me.

  3. so glad you had a great day. these picture are amazing!!!!

  4. It sounds like a wonderful birthday and the rose is beautiful! Maybe the draft thing is what happened to my post last night but it didn't hit at midnight last night. I'll have to check to make sure tomorrow's post is okay. Anyway, glad you had a nice birthday!

  5. It sounds like you had a perfect birthday to me Ann! And a rose from your son ~ how sweet! Hopefully your Amazon purchases will arrive soon.

    I haven't had that problem with blogger before but lately I've had where you click on the 'comment' and a blogger page comes up as 'unavailable' so you click out and back on and it works. it just did it a moment ago when I wanted to put a comment here.

    Oh those blogger bugs.... :(

    xo Catherine

  6. Sounds like a great day to me! How nice that your son remembered.

  7. A gorgeous rose from from your son ~ precious! Sounds like you had a very happy day!

    ps what did Duke give you :) I know, lots of puppy dog love!

  8. The photo came out a "Wow".

    I don't schedule posts any more so can't say much about your glitch...

  9. We are sorry we missed your post on your birthday... but Happy Belated Birthday Ann... even though it might not be exciting, it was a good day when everything went well :) and you didn't have to cook... and you got a beautiful rose! That would have been a perfect day in my eyes.

  10. A beautiful rose for a beautiful lady .... it sounds as though you had a lovely day. :)

  11. Hi Ann, Looks like you had a great birthday... Getting that rose from your son had to be very very special....

    AND the Amazon gifts are going to be wonderful.... AND--you didn't have to cook.. Yeah Rah!!!!!

    If you make changes to your post, be sure to republish it. I have had things left in draft also--and it is always because I had made corrections and forgot to re-publish.....

    Mine publishes every morning at 4 a.m. I always check it right before I go to bed to make sure it is published..


  12. Your pictures are breathtaking, a symbol of your son's love for you. Your day rocked!!!! You got a rose from your son, you got everything on your wish list, not just one, and you had someone cook for you! A year or so ago, I pre-scheduled some posts. And this is what they started doing. I could never count on them. So now even if I have to stay up half the night, I write and post them all at once, no more pre-scheduling.

  13. Well I think it sounds like you had a wonderful day Ann...I'm not big on plans and going out and stuff so your birthday is pretty much reminiscent of mine each year!!

  14. Belated Happy Birthday Ann! :)
    I just had my chance to stop by today. Wishing you more blessings for the years to come. Cheers! :D

  15. That sounds like a great birthday. Glad you got all your Amazon goodies on the way. That will be fun. Your birthday all over again. Love the rose. Roses are my favorite.
    Have a great day.

  16. well i feel a little better since it posted after my bed time. love the rose, both photos. that is really nice with the white light in front of the door. did you do the adjustments in your camera? or with software. sounds like you had a great birthday to me. what kind of accessory's did you get and what kind of camera do you have? i like the white like you did with duke in the header.

  17. What a gorgeous rose! I look forward to reading about your quilling kit when it comes. I'm glad you got everything you wanted.

  18. Well, that sounds like a nice enough birthday. Any day that your family is nice to you and you don't have to cook is just fine with me. :)

    Not having probs with Blogger--sorry you are. :(

  19. As long as you had a day you enjoy that is a good birthday in my opinion. It is not like we are little anymore and need balloons and a cake ... well at least I could care less anymore lol. I love the rose Brad brought you, that was sweet of him!

  20. Sounded like a good day to me. No cooking,a wonderful Rose and some goodies coming in the mail. Can't get much better. Except maybe some chocolate cake.

  21. Well, glad you figured that post problem out! I have no idea why Blogger is doing that...
    That rose is GORGEOUS ANN!!!!
    Love the lighting!! What a SWEET Son!

  22. Your birthday sounds wonderful to me. No cooking! And the rose is beautiful :)

  23. I'm glad you had a nice Birthday, Ann - it doesn't always have to be fireworks and a big hoop-la. Anymore, any day that I wake up pain free not in imminent danger or fear of losing my life, it's a good day and a perfect gift...My motto is:

    "Enjoy the little things, for one day you may find that those were the big things"

    Also, you won a door prize during my Oz Celebration and since it's a surprise I can't tell you what it is, but if you leave me your address on my e-mail, I'd be happy to send it to you:



  24. Oh I missed your birthday. Happy belated birthday to you! You are the same age as my Mommeh!
