…apart from binging on the absolutely HUMONGOUS fruit basket I got… goodness me… I have never seen so much work.. no scratch that… so much artwork done with fruit before in my life! Those chocolate covered strawberries were just THE BOMB!
Taken from a friend’s BB display picture 😀
Yup! I sure am! Just check out my pictures and tell me I’m lying… hahaha.
Yes! It’s now 3 minutes past my birthday, 26 Feb [just so you know :-D] and I guess I can officially say I had an EXCELLENT DAY! What did I do?! ABSOLUTELY NOTHING! 😀 😀 😀 Well…
And let us not forget the absolutely amazing cheesecake with blueberry topping! Goodness me, the only sad thing about today was putting on all that weight I spent the last week or two trying to lose. But I’m sure I’ll get over it. I take solace in the fact that it was for a good cause 😀 From later today, I’m back to the early morning and late night glass of hot water. I hear it works wonders. 😉 I’ll stick with that till I summon up enough courage to start jogging on the streets in the wee hours of the morning.
So anywayz, I decided to postpone my meetings, my movie (yes I promised myself I’d watch The Life of Pi) and dinner (someone was not too happy with this decision) and stay indoors throughout… well except for the quick stopover at my mom’s. But yes… today was a great day! I think the only thing I did apart from sleep was sew myself a dress… Ok I haven’t finished it yet but at least I started and boy was it highly therapeutic. I had almost forgotten how much I enjoyed sewing for pleasure (yes I had to emphasize that).
So now I’m taking a break from my sewing… Hopefully when I’m done with this post, my batteries would be fully charged and then I can get back to responding to my BB messages. And then start on my Facebook messages later today (insert-scary-look-emoticon-in-here)…
So what was the best part of my day you ask? …apart from doing diddly squat?! Well… I would say the food (definitely the food!) and catching up with people I hadn’t heard from in ages…(yes, I have people who call me just once a year haha…). But top of the list would definitely be, of course the many many prayers and kind words I received. Here’s just one of the many I have read so far…
“This is the start of great things for you God-willing. Please remember not to shane who you are as a person. Like I always tell you, you are a dying breed amongst our women. Stay strong and remain thankful for what you have and the positive people around you. Wishing you many many more years filled with good health, love and happiness”.
Haha! My head is just swelling! But he is right… not about the dying breed bit haha… but about being thankful. And I really am… thankful that I am surrounded by lots of people who spared a lot more than 5 seconds to share my day with me… You guys made my day! And seeing my picture on many people’s updates was just the icing on the cake! 😀
Here are some of the popular ones…
And one from wayyy back… 😀
So yes yes! That was how my day went!
Thank you so much everyone!!! As you have shown me kindness, may you always receive favor wherever you go. God bless you loads!
Of course before I sign off, I always have to wish my other mates a happy birthday as well… Abayomi Sadiku, Omoba Joe, Patrick Fovie, Tracy, Toyosi, Aya Musty & Omakin… and many others lucky enough to share this special day with me. For those who do not know, the 26 February is a very special day! The 26th day of February of every year (leap year or not) always falls on both New Year’s Day and Christmas Day! Yup! Check it out! I told you I was special! 😉 As someone else said in his update, “I am a Seed from the Lineage of GRACE“! 😀
I hope you all had a great day as well! Do have a great night’s rest and have a fab week!
