Birthday Surprise

Yesterday was my birthday. It was a nice lazy day, just the kind I like. We usually meet friends for breakfast on Sunday mornings and I was surprised when my daughter and her husband, and my son and his girlfriend joined us as well. Yeah, they're not known for getting up early on Sunday mornings. So it was a treat to have us all together and we had a great time.

I was able to get a little writing done on my current work-in-progress after breakfast. The weather warmed up and I even got to curl up on the swing on my back porch with one of my free books from RWA National. Then hubby took me out to dinner. Nice birthday all the way around.

Then I got the rest of my birthday surprise.

Okay, it's on order because right now they are sold out, but hubby has heard me talking about Kindles and other e-readers, and he's been checking them out. I think hubby has iPad envy myself, but I want a reader small enough to slip in my purse and with a screen I can read outside. So...I'm getting a Kindle!

I guess I'll get another suprise when the box shows up at my door.

So anyone want to share their birthday surprises?

Congrats on the lovely birthday, and the neat gift! I hope to get something like that from Santa.

My birthday is so close to Christmas, it can get lost. But we go away every year at about that time, so I usually find a souvenir of our trip for my birthday gift.

Happy Birthday, Natasha! Enjoy your gift when it arrives! (I'm sure you will.) :) An ebook reader is also on my wishlist.

Thanks, Nicole! I'm sure my bank account will feel it when I begin to enjoy my gift. :)
