|The day was running up with bright sunshine but rather low temperatures. In fact we started below the freezing mark, but I think we reached 42 or 44. Not very inviting for spending extended time sitting on the porch. So Bea’s birthday party was going to happen indoors.|
Coffee was ready and the cakes were just waiting for our guests when everybody showed up at 3pm today.
It was the first time that we had gathered 10 people for coffee and cake around our table in this house. When Bea turned 60 last year we were in our trailer in Alberta and there was no party, so we had to have a bigger party today. And we love having our neighbours come for visits. As soon as everybody was seated around our heavy Norwegian pine table the chat was going on like you wouldn’t believe it. We had a good variety of cakes and cookies and there was coffee and tea.
This is Bea’s cake. It’s a Sponge cake with a pineapple CoolWhip, mandarines chocolate cream
The “False Cheese Cake” decorated with whipping cream and strawberries.
Waiting for the guests to arrive
These social meetings are one of the best things when you live in a small community.
Everybody is seated and the chat is flowing
Bea says this birthday party was the best ever, and what more could we possibly ask for? She received many Birthday wishes via Facebook and Email. Bea’s mother, one of Bea’s cousins and one of the cousin’s daughter all have their birthday on April 29. Talk about having this as a family day.
