Title: Happy Birthday, Shiral!
Post by: Evie on February 05, 2013, 09:18:46 am
Happy birthday!  I would wish for a bunch of tiny people to move into your miniature houses to bring you extra delight, but if there's anything I've learned in the past year, it's that little people are pretty high maintenance....   ;)  ;D

Hope you have a great year ahead!

Happy, happy birthday, Shiral!  I heard it through the grapevine that certain blond, Deryni Duke is opening a bottle of Fianna wine to celebrate.   ;D

Thanks Evaine and Jerusha!

Spent Sunday Night in San Francisco and yesterday, Mom and I spent money like Ivana Trump, er  "Stimulated the San Francisco Economy" in stores around Union Square. Then came home and had a dinner party at a local French Restaurant.  Today, my actual birthday will be a little less vigorous, but I'll still do some puttering about and amusing myself this afternoon.

As if all of that bellowing for Alaric isn't going to wake Richenda?   So much for being discreet!  :D

Shiral, Look who's image I acquired recently.
I bet anything, you have his image too, but here is a fresh look just in case you misplaced it in the move.

Now that's what I call a birthday present!  And I'll bet he's bringing you that slice of birthday cake - you can always count on our Duke of Corwyn.   :D

Hope you have a wonderful birthday, Shiral!

And ooh, Laurna!  Thank you for posting that "birthday card"; now I have something to work from when I get around to recreating Mini-Alaric's 1:6 scale shield!   ;D

Wow, that's what I call  a BIRTHDAY Present! =o) Alaric in full battle-rattle on his horse.

Thanks, Laurna!  So far it's been a nice  birthday, but it IS just 9:30 in the morning.=o) I am being supervised by Dmitri as I write this. I think he wants an ear scritchie.

Wow pretty cake! 
I hope those are real flowers and not spun sugar. Truly, I can not tell.
Aerlys, I think this makes you the official pâtissičre  for the Duke of Corwyn.

Shiral, please continue to have a most Happy Birthday!

I think they are probably gum paste. I have seen some pretty realistic flowers made that way. It's an amazing art form. So yes, feel free to eat the whole thing...except the candles, of course!

It's a little early in my time zone (and therefore in Shiral's time zone because she's several hours behind me), but I'm going to post anyway.  Happiest of birthdays to one of the original Zipper Sisters!  :D

Seriously, I hope you have a great birthday, Shiral.  :)

Have a wonderful, happy birthday, Shiral!

I'm sure the Duke of Corwyn will be sending along birthday wishes as well, along with a nice bottle of fianna red.   :)

Thank you for the good wishes, everyone! It has been a nice, if not classically birthdayish birthday today. However. I am wearing my new turquoise bead bracelet--my birthday present to me-- right now.

I'm staying at a very pretty bed and breakfast in Oaxaca. I figure all the walking we're doing to and from the center of town must be burning at least some of the calories from our meals.  Especially on the way back, which is uphill. For someone who inconveniently dislikes black beans, beer and avocados-- three staples here-- I'm eating very well!

Happy Birthday Shiral! If your day is a pretty in central California as it is in So Cal, then it is a very pretty day for walking, indeed. I hope you enjoy the bed and breakfast. Very nice!

Happy Birthday. I have it on good (ducal) authority that you cannot get drunk on Fianna wine ( wipe that smirk off your face, Sean Derry!).

Happy birthday, Shiral! For some reason there are not a lot of shiral-themed cakes out there, but maybe a geode cake might be of interest?

Hello everyone! Thank you all for your birthday wishes! So far, so good  in birthday-land. I didn’t make it chat yesterday because my mother and I were in San Francisco for a weekend of pre-birthday culture. We saw Tchailovsky’s Sleeping Beauty at the SF Ballet on Saturday Evening, had an overnight stay at the St. Francis Hotel.  Did some new clothes shopping yesterday morningish. Ate lots and spent lots.
Evie—WOW, what a birthday cake! Beautiful, and entirely acceptable.
Aang—thank you, I’m glad you enjoyed the story. 🙂 (“Dhugal  at Work—Dhugal grows up and gets an office job.) 😉
Bynw—thanks, Zipper Bro!

Thank you all for your kind wishes! So far, so good on the Birthday front. Not making a huge fuss this year, but had a nice Birthday Eve birthday party at my Monday evening writing group which always begins with a potluck supper. Two beautiful bouquets of roses, now gracing my living room coffee table, and the left-overs of my birthday cake, provided by my mother, is in my refrigerator. Took today off work to just do stuff I want to do. 

Laurna thank you, the cake is adorable!
