Celebrations.

Today has been a day of Celebrations.
I made my sandwiches,


 sorted my hat, picked my flower, washed my china cup saucer and plate. wrote my card and wrapped my gift.
One of my "Quilting friends," was being given a surprise 80th Birthday party. Her actual  birthday is the 26th so she didn't suspect a thing.
 Here are the 8 other guest including the party girl.( difficult to tell which one might be 80.  2 others here are 79. ) All quilting ladies. Sorry I am not in this photo as I am taking it. I will get one from someone else with me in it.
 The combined age of these ladies is 600 years!
 It was a lovely celebration and remained a surprise for her till she arrived.

Today also happens to be our 46th Wedding Anniversary, so we are off out for late dinner...as if I need it after all that eating but Today is an exception.

Happy anniversary! What a lovely surprise for your friend's birthday, people whose birthday is so close to Christmas must often feel that they have been forgotten
