Another red-letter day on my calendar!




Why is aging on my mind today?  
Perhaps because it's my birthday!

Above, my birthday breakfast.  Nothing really special, 
except perhaps to me. Being English, toast and marmalade
 has always been a favorite . . . . . so today I'll celebrate
 the arrival of another wonderful year with something I enjoy!

No time to post much, things to do, places to go . . . . . . .
 . . . . . . and later an awful lot of candles to blow out!

  2. Happy Birthday. My grandma came from England as a child seven years old. She had her marmalade - of which I never acquired a taste for.

    1. Hello Robin, are you in NC?
      My favorite is Scottish marmalade - with coarse orange peel always!

  8. While I was walking this morning, I thought of you and wondered if it was your birthday today or in the next day or two. I hope you have had a most wonderful birthday, full of the things that you enjoy. Toast and marmalade is lovely! Happy Birthday, dear Mary!

  9. HAppY BirThdAy, Mary! ๐Ÿฅณ I thought this would grab your attention! I hope you felt all the good feels! I know how you love marmalade and toast. Can you believe I just discovered Lingonberry jam? Now I have it on English muffins, pancakes, and thick slices of toasted bread. I was never a fan of jams or marmalade's until I had the warmed version in a restaurant this past summer.

    Again, Happy Birthday, dear friend!❤️

  13. Dear Mary - Happy Birthday and have a wonderful day. I didn't have any toast and marmalade at breakfast, but you have now just encouraged me to have some with my mid-morning coffee - marmalade by J.

  16. Dearest Mary,
    Happy belated Birthday to you.
    Oh, how I used to enjoy toast (whole wheat that is) with marmelade but due to the sugar content I haven't eaten that for some 14 years. Fond memories though!
    Hugs,
    Mariette
