* Happy Birthday *

We took my mother out to lunch (was more like dinner in the portion sizes) yesterday to celebrate her birthday. And we used her debit card.
Aren't we thoughtful and generous? We were going to use our debit card, but she insisted we use hers.

The good thing was she got out of the house and did something fun, just using a cane. No wheelchair. Her broken pelvis is healing, slowly, and when that's better we help her start the search for a contractor to repair her house. Yikes. That is going to be a project.

This morning we're off to a pancake breakfast at church. Food, glorious food!

So, what kind of fruit are you? Odat shared this the other day and I found out I'm an orange..

You Are an Orange

You have a zest for life, especially for anything colorful, wild, or dramatic.
You have a unique take on the world, and you're not afraid to be a little funky.

You are a bit reserved toward people who don't know you well.
You have a thick skin, which can protect you from anything that goes wrong in your life.

Once someone does get to know you, they totally get and appreciate you.
Your friends see you as a bright person with a refreshing take on life.

What Type of Fruit Are You?

give it a try

Yummy. Glad to read that your mom is healing nicely and that she is able to now get out and about.

Oh...and I'm an orange too so that explains our sisterhood.

Nice to hear that despite the lousy weather here in Connecticut yesterday you were able to take your mom out for lunch. Also very nice to hear that she's able to get around with just a cane right now - that's wonderful news!

I took the quiz and it turns out that I am a lemon ...

You have a very distinct personality. And if you're not being sweet, you're a little hard to take.
You're a bit overpowering, especially in one on one situations.

And while you are very dominant, sometimes your power is needed and appreciated.
You can liven up a dull situation, and you definitely bring a fresh outlook.

You are a bit of an acquired taste, and you tend to grow on people over time.
People feel refreshed and rejuvenated after spending time with you.

That's probably not that far off and I may have to use this one on my own blog!

Hope you enjoyed those pancakes - they sound yummy!

And that sounds just like the you I think I know. (did you understand that? hehe)
