It is a special day for me and I am in a cheerful way. Glad for the little things in life which brings happiness. Another anniversary is here and birthdays and anniversaries make me feel very good and I am sure you feel the same. It's an occasion to cook specials, do spring clean ups, pretty up the place with flowers and bust out the prettiest sheets to spread. I even gave my little champ here a bear hug and big smoochie. He is behaving quite well you know. Letting me sit here and chat with you while he plays with his toy 'Thomas.'
You have a wonderful time until we come back with another recipe for you.
