Another Candle on My Cake

It's rather dark, but shows the photos hanging from the ceiling - photos of Alaska.

One of two inflated boats hung from my ceiling.

Dog sled photo hanging in my cube.

Yes, I added another candle on my cake yesterday. Wow! Where does the time go? My life is full and overflowing. I have no complaints.

Yesterday I celebrated with friends from my choir. They decorated my choir chair - but of course the decorations had to be removed prior to the worship service. :-) After services, they took me out to eat at one of my favorite restaurants. I ordered cranberry/walnut pancakes and Hormel bacon. It was delicious! The waitress brought a huge piece of carrot cake, which we shared.

Today I was surprised to find my cube decorated wonderfully in an Alaskan cruise theme, complete with two ferry boats. The greeting at the entrance is:


which is Happy Birthday in Inuit, the language of one of the Indian tribes living in Alaska. This afternoon we'll be having my party - with home-made chocolate layer cake from LaVonne. I work with fantastic people - more of my friends.

Thursday I fly to Seattle to Heidi and Chad's. On Friday, 20 of us will board the Rhapsody of the Seas and be on our voyage to Alaska. I'll be celebrating more while on the cruise. I sure hope I'll be able to fit in my office chair when I return!
