Happily we both enjoy our birthdays and we take pleasure in celebrating the other on our special day. A pampered breakfast, relaxing and moving at whatever pace the day, and your body, dictates. No commitments or plans outside of lunch.
I made a mid morning jaunt into Olhão to pick up shrimp for a picnic dinner later today while Marc enjoyed reading the many emails, cards, etc. that have come his way. Driving into town I noticed a “clump” of roses growing along the side of the road. I made note to stop on the way back and take a “snap” or two. If I can’t actually hand him a bouquet of roses, I can share with him my photos!
I had made a reservation at Gunther’s, the same place we had celebrated my birthday back in February. Being a hot and sunny day it was a treat to sit on the terrace under a large umbrella and simply be pampered. Our friend Andreé-Anne joined us.
A wonderful time it was and we still have an enormous stretch of afternoon in front of us. I think I hear the pool calling out……..happily it offers both shade and sun, something to satisfy each of our tastes.
Next year we will be in Canada for Marc’s birthday and given it will be the BIG SEVEN OH!!! There will be celebrations. Stay tuned for details……,.and invitations!!
Parabéns meu maravilhoso marido!
