It Was HIS Birthday

And I squeezed orange juice to go with the breakfast eggs and sausage (two proteins in one meal - it's definitely a celebration!).

And we had Albanian walnut cake with lemon glaze and whipped cream after our Thai rice and salad.

And I got him a present from the thrift store, which I have never done before. 

But, serendipitously, he had gotten me a secondhand present too:  a camera!!!!!!  Stars! Fireworks! Wow!

I am the proud owner of A Real Camera, a Canon EOS 10D.  My husband did his research and some sleuthing and oh my word, it feels so good and real in my hand.  Not that I have taken any good photos with it yet - I just got it a few hours ago.  I have a manual to read. 

What a memorable birthday!

Whoa duuuuude! He got you something on HIS birthday?! Is that a tradition? I think he deserves at least 3 proteins in his breakfasts...for the next MONTH.

JJ, not a tradition, although the Germans give gifts to others on their birthdays and our ancient ethnicity is German. But maybe it does truly illustrate that it's fun to give presents to other people. He certainly enjoyed my shock and delight!
