Happy Birthday to Me

 Flowers for my birthday. We started celebrating a day early for my birthday with my two oldest grandsons. They started to school today. Yesterday was a beautiful day to be outside watching them ride. I got home at 11:30 and was going to sleep a little late, but then hubby called to wish me happy birthday, then my daughter, and then my daughter-in-law. I talked so much on my cell today that I had to put it on the charger twice. 
After lunch, I went window shopping or at least that is what I call it. I was trying to get ideas for a baby shower. It has been quite some time since I have been to one. Please pray for my niece, she still has 33 weeks left to go, but her blood pressure is causing problems along with some other issues. She was having to stay in the hospital over night today. They say the baby weighs 5-6 lbs, but I don't know if they will let it come early or not. I just want both to be o.k.
 My youngest grandson called to tell me Happy Birthday and about his first day of school. He told his momma that she could just drop him off that she didn't need to walk him to his room. He is getting grown up for only being in the 2nd grade. 
I have to learn how to set the date on my camera, still haven't managed that yet.The sun was going down as I was coming home.
I don't know if I showed you my butterfly and orange blossom table topper. I really like the way that it turned out. I have a craft show I am getting ready for this next month. I have never been there so it should prove interesting. 
 Taste of Home cooking school is coming to our city again this year in November. The girls and I are already planning on going again. We had so much fun last time and I was lucky enough to win one of the door prizes. 
Everybody had a good first day of school. The older two was getting ready for bed. They have to be on the bus at 6:45 A.M. in the morning. 
My birthday has been enjoyable and yesterday the weather was awesome so it was an enjoyable weekend. 
Hope all is well with you all. Have a great week.
