A Very English birthday & studio view

If you haven't already read it on my art Facebook page, yesterday was my 45th birthday! Uh huh. It was delightful and filled with various cakes and pressies, starting at breakfast, all the way down to afternoon high tea with family. Both my niece and youngest stepson baked the evening before, making cookies, red velvet cupcakes and this delicious chocolate cake above...with bunting, to boot! Isn't it so cute and so me? I felt blessed to be surrounded by those I love and experiencing new things this year. I couldn't ask for more.

Earlier today, Michael's sister helped me rearrange the front room to set up a temporary desk/studio space. It's quite the cozy spot, overlooking rooftops leading one's eyes all the way down to the village and out to the seaside/ocean. You can't really see it in this photo as it's been raining all day. When the sun is stretching out its arms again, dancing across the blue sky, I'll snap another photo for everyone to see the incredible view.

With that said, I'm signing off for the night. In North Yorkshire, it's very late in the evening; almost 11:00 PM. We're 5-7 hours ahead, depending on where you might live. Until Sunday...sweet dreams.
