A birthday ritual to remember

9 01 2011

Just a bit of silliness here. Today’s my birthday. Some girlfriends toasted me last night, and this morning some other girlfriends took me out for brunch and a movie. My car is in the repair shop, so they picked me up in a yellow Mustang convertible and whisked me to Boots & Kimo’s restaurant in Kailua. Gorgeous day in paradise, no clouds in the sky. Lots of presents—things I wouldn’t get for myself—like these very cool birthday glasses.

Boots & Kimo’s Homestyle Kitchen is very popular with local people and visitors alike; we waited an hour for a table. But the wait staff made up for it by bringing the banana macadamia nut pancakes with a birthday candle and singing Happy Birthday!

After stuffing ourselves with omelets we went to see the movie “Country Strong.” It had good songs, some new acting-and-singing talent and parts that made me cry. Checked in with my Facebook news feed to see many birthday wishes sent my way. 😉

This evening DH and I ate hamburgers with Miss Marvelous and her mom. Miss Marvelous, now 20-months, surprised us by saying “Alice Brown” instead of just “Brown,” referring to the mutt on the masthead of Rebekah’s Studio. No complaints on this very fine birthday. Thanks, everybody, for celebrating with me.
