HB to Me

I can’t sing the Beatles song quite yet, but I’m just one year short.  My birthday arrived quietly and found me sleeping in until awakened by a phone call at 9:30.  Did I ever even think I could sleep so late?
I was amazed to check my email and find it full of messages from people who use Facebook far more often than I do.  They were interspersed with greetings from people who just happen to know it is my birthday.  And there was an e-book gift from my daughter:  The Paris Wife: A Novel by Paula McLain.  A good way to start the day for sure.
Since it was so late, I figured I might as well eat brunch.  So I made the most delicious frittata -- eggs with shitake mushrooms, sweet red pepper, green onions, parsley, sour cream, and parmesan cheese.  
Tonight we will have dinner out with good friends and on Saturday a few more people will come help me blow out some candles.  But as with the recent holidays, this one is more about taking it easy than about setting off fireworks!

Thanks, everyone! I had a wonderful, relaxing day with a great dinner at Kushi-Sushi with good friends. No cake today, but some fantastic sorbet.

I will echo my Facebook comment and say "Happy Birthday" once again! (Even though it's technically over by now.) That frittata looks great!
