Saying Goodbye to February

February is one of my favorite months---how could you not like a month filled with hearts and love.  Oh and it also just happens to be my birthday month.  I turned 45 on February 8.  (Yikes) 
From the time I was a little girl, my mom would prepare us a birthday dinner of our choice.  I was really looking forward to my choice this year---Halusky, Kielbasa, and Pirohies--A  real Slovak dinner.  I woke feeling just a little achy but it was my birthday and I refused to be sick.  As the day went on I began to realize that I was indeed sick--Rats!!! the flu for my birthday.  My mom promised to keep my dinner until I was feeling better and I snuggled in my bed waiting for my fever to break.  I had to be better before Saturday.  My mom and I planned to spend the whole day together and then meet my best friend Heidi and her daughter, Jenna for dinner.  I also planned on spending the night at my parents--my Mom was going to teach me to quilt.  Thankfully by the time Saturday arrived I was feeling like myself again.  Mom and I got an early start and headed to the most amazing quilt shop.  I chose the fabric for my quilt lesson and then it was on to the local farm market--which just happens to have the most amazing gift shop.......






After a wonderful afternoon, it was time to meet Heidi and Jenna.  We did a little shopping....

had a little dinner, and then went back to my Moms for muffins and chi tea.


Mom gave me my quilt lesson--Heidi and Jenna headed home--and I got into my pj's and headed off to bed in my childhood room.  I know they say you can't go home again but I must say it was really nice for at least one night.  I slept so well--until 10:00am--that never happens.  Dad and I had muffins and coffee for breakfast.  Then later that afternoon finally my birthday dinner--YUMMY!!!
So goodbye to February and welcome to March--looking forward  to all this next month will bring.

I hate to say good bye to the month of Feb. too, it is such a delightful month, inspite of winter storms and such. For you it is even more special since it is your birthday month. Happy Belated Birthday! I loved hearing about your special day out. And one can go home again, even if just for a day or two. You can never go back for good, but you can be someone's little girl again for just a moment in time!

Sounds like such a fun weekend, Mimi. So glad you got better in time to enjoy it! My mom no longer lives in my childhood house, but when I go to visit we revert to the mother-child relationship -- she does (almost) all the work and all I do (almost) is play, play, play. Gotta love that!

Glad you were able to have a great birthday.
Spending time with your Mom probably helped too.
I'm ready for this next month--it's alwasy nice to have a clean slate to start with.

Have a good one.
