In lieu of a video....

Today I tried to share a video I took of all the pretty blooming flowers and trees in my neighborhood, and it wouldn't work. I was really disappointed.  So in lieu of that, I'll just show you a couple of pictures I took on my birthday this week.

First off, here is where I had lunch. This is a seafood restaurant close to my house that has great food.


They make a wonderful, spicy version of my favorite meal--shrimp and grits.


I did a bit of shopping after lunch. I wanted to find a new purse, but nothing appealed to me. I did end up splurging on a bottle of perfume..."Happy in Bloom".

Then I went and had my car washed and waxed and vacuumed out. It really needed it, and it's so nice to have a shiny car again!

I had a good birthday, despite the fact that Gregg had to work until late in the evening. We had just taken a week off together, so I couldn't complain. And once he got home we had a good dinner and a nice evening together.

Oh, and I took a birthday selfie! Just because.
Forty-one. 

Thank you all for all the wonderful birthday greetings! They made me so happy!

    1. Tubbs has great seafood. It's very fresh--the brothers who own it are fishermen who used to sell fresh seafood at our local market. The restaurant has been a huge success in the two years it's been open.

    1. They have wonderful food, and a very relaxed atmosphere. The last time I was there (before my birthday) I had an oyster Rockefeller po' boy sandwich that was delicious.
