Another Year Older

Yesterday was my birthday. Yup, I feel older. That's not necessarily a bad thing, right? Getting older sure beats the alternative. Although the original plans for the day fell through because of the chilly weather, I was treated to a very nice day. I woke up to a table full of presents.I love how Pickle always customizes her envelopes.
Bear treated me to breakfast at a really cool place - Hash House a Gogo. They have awesome food and crazy big portions. This was there version of chicken fried chicken and eggs. It was WAY too much for one person to eat.
After breakfast we did a little shopping and then spent a little time at Valley View, my favorite local casino. I didn't hit any big jackpot, but a couple of little hits here and there always keeps it fun.
For dinner we went to Red Tracton's, a cozy restaurant in the Del Mar area. The food was fantastic, the atmosphere was cozy, and the company was great. They treated me to a little birthday dessert to share with the table.
Speaking of desserts, once we got home, there was another cake waiting for me. It was a triple chocolate mousse cake and it was incredible!
I was spoiled with all sorts of wonderful birthday gifts - a new Golden calendar, some beautiful clothes, a laminator that I've had my eye on, a big box of Sees candy (back to the gym I'll go...) and the topper offer was a beautiful 27" computer monitor. Talk about COOL! Apparently someone knows I spend a lot of time on the computer and will get a TON of use out of that.
Yes, it was a very nice day indeed, and I am looking foward to see what the next year brings my way.
