This Polish birthday song was sung to me 3 times by my dear Father-in-law in seperate voice mails he left me today (I was out in the gardens most of the day again, phones inside), texted to me by a Sista-in-law and sung to me by Vic after the waitresses (and he) sung happy birthday to me when they brought dessert to us. I am by no means spelling it correctly, most likely, but spelling it as it sounds when sung. It's a tradition in Vic's family which now makes him and Dad's voices crack with tears when they sing it. (My Mother-in-law called on my 30th birthday and sung it on our answering machine, she passed away 15 days later). It's a traditon we will carry on with our own children.
It was a quiet day at home for the most part, me out in the dirt, planting the last of the seeds, repotting a few Vinca's, pulling Ivy that's grown back after being pulled 2 years ago. Mom stopped by with a card, stayed for about an hour. She was in on Vic's coming home early so she apparently pretended to over sleep & since I was all filthy from the garden, we couldn't go for lunch (which I hadn't planned on anyway so that was ok). Just before Vic got home, the most enormous bouquet of flowers I've ever seen or received was delivered! (3 feet long - filled 2 vases). Then he got home and as per his orders from yesterday, I was ready, so he changed quickly & we headed out. I had no clue where he was taking me! We ended up at a country bar & restuarant down in South Jersey where 98.5fm sponsors a free acoustic concert every Thursday evening. Tonight happened to be Bucky Covington who has a couple of good songs so that was fun. Dinner was FAB-U-LOUS! (As was desert).
And now I'm heading off to sleep!
PS- Hello 34! Today was a good day & here's to hoping the rest of this year is filled with many, many, many more of them while we get acquainted!
