It’s my birthday on Sunday, and we’re in the middle of the Great Storm of 2010.
Esala, my fiance, made a point of finding a local florist who would deliver in the Great Storm. At 7:30 this evening, I received a surprise gift basket of hydrangeas, and the best part of it is that it’s a real plant! Now I can replace my quite dead palm tree!!
I also got a package from my parents, and since I have not taken down my Christmas decorations, I made a “Happy birthday tree”. My little Christmas tree didn’t get any Christmas gift love on the real Christmas, but I put all my wrapped gifts under the tree, so I can open them bright and early on my birthday morning.
Silly, I know. But considering there’s NO ONE around for my birthday this year, the small things mean a lot.
