{SUNSHINE as a Perfect Birthday Gift}

My Birthday was a very happy day and it was full of SUNSHINE. That made it already a Perfect Birthday Gift, considering the dreary, cold and rainy day that followed... Our foster-daughter Anita in Indonesia did Skype us via video call before breakfast time; that was a nice gift to see her beautiful face and smile in front of us. When we were reading our mail and had a cup of coffee with chocolate, our Liz called from Rotterdam in The Netherlands. With the iPhone in front of us, we could again chat via Skype video call. How times have changed for the better in communication! Lots of phone calls from family and friends. We also did go outside and I did snip off our only two Ehrlicheer daffodils that were blooming. We have almost no daffodil blooms this year; very sad... only leaves but no buds. But at least one Baccarat  perfume bottle could be filled with them, together with the two from a previous day. 
Happy at the dinner table with friends...
Happy with daughter Anita calling via Skype video before breakfast...
Happy with daughter Liz making a Skype video call and her singing happy birthday together with her Dad...
We started off with some Fog in the early morning but the forecast was excellent.
By 2:29 PM it was 78°F or 25°C Real Feel ~ what a Birthday gift with lots of SUNSHINE...
See the BLUE SKY? Smelling my two stems of Ehrlicheer daffodils; they are so fragrant!
Wearing my Escada jeans and Escada cotton cropped black sweater.
Also Escada shoes...
Frontal view of 62 year old me...
Happy day!
In-between telephone calls and such, I did manage to make some Tom Yam Koeng Thai soup with fresh Georgia shrimps and served with brown rice as a full meal.
Tiramisu for dessert with coffee...
Using my French Le Jacquard Français placemats and napkins and Baccarat crystal.
French Gien Rose soup bowls with Alvin Bridal Rose gumbo spoons...
Happily eating some of my tiramisu... sugar for a Birthday is allowed!
It felt great to be with dear friends at table...
Grateful for another year being added!

    1. Lieve Ger,
      Heel hartelijk dank voor je lieve wensen en die Thaise soep had ik graag met je gedeeld. Ik maak altijd een gróte pot vol met vier pond grote Georgia garnalen; vers van zee. Zelfs mijn Thaise vriendin vindt ze erg lekker. Heb het recept uit de nederlandse Nouveau en ik stuur het je graag toe als je wilt.
      Ja, tòch staan die cijfers goed... Maar ik kon menigeen een loer draaien!
      Liefs,
      Mariette

    Terima kasih banyak atas komentar manis, yang membuat saya bahagia. Aku bisa membaca Bahasa Indonesia cukup baik. Ini membuat saya bahagia dan memberikan perasaan menjadi kembali di Bali dan Jawa. Ya, kadang-kadang saya rindu dan terutama selama musim dingin kita kehilangan itu sangat banyak. Juga buah-buahan segar dan begitu banyak hal...
    Hugs to you,

  31. Dear Mariette, Oh, I missed your birthday! Please accept my apologies and I want to wish you a belated Happy Birthday! You make a lovely birthday girl and don't look your age at all, still so pretty with those long beautiful legs that go on forever. So wonderful that you did spend the day with friends and had some birthday wishes via Skype. Isn't it wonderful to see the faces of your loved ones so far away? Those daffodils bloomed just for you, I am sure. A big hug for you and so sorry I am late. xoxo
