Morning Meanderings… Happy Birthday Happy Birthday!!!


I am having a pretty good week.  After the Monday What Are You reading Celebration, a fantastic book club meeting last night (review and discussion up later today), and now today…. is my birthday.

I am in a fine festive mood and feel we need a little theme music here before I can move on so hang on while I put some music on…

hang on…

be right back…

*looking through stacks of music*

Ok… sweet!  Here we go:

Oh come on it is 80’s!  Whats not to love?  😛

Anyway while I dance around my kitchen table with my coffee cup let me share a happening and a tip….

Last night at book club I apparently dropped my cell phone in the snow.  By the time I left 2 1/2 hours later (yeah… we were chatty last night) I found it iced over by my vehicle…. it was functioning but slowly.

Thanks to my son doing the same thing a year ago _ I knew what to do.

I brought it home and put it in a Ziploc of rice.  Apparently the rice will draw any moisture out of the phone.  The verdict?  It is working fine today.

SO – birthday agenda?  Nothing great really.  I work until 3, then hitting the gym…. home for dinner and then 6:30 I take Chance to Youth Group and myself to class.  AT 8 pm I plan to run Chance home and then at 8:15 meet up with a few girlfriends for appetizers for a small but “Woo Hoo its your birthday” gathering.  The eating healthy is on hold until the Birthday is over.  😀

    1. LOL Bonnie – if you only knew how hard I tried to get the video to plan on the blog – but no…. so had to link it… but yeah…. whats now to love about the 80’s?

      (Oh – other than Millie Vanillie)

  1. Happy, happy birthday, Sheila! It’s a great month — week, even — to be born! 😀 Mine wasn’t a huge deal this year, either. But I hope you have a good day.

  2. Happy birthday!! Enjoy every moment – today is all about you.

    PS thanks for the drying out the cell phone tip. I will need it one day.

  3. Happy Birthday Sheila! I was going to wish you an early one last night at book club, but I had a little…ahem…red light problem before the meeting. Anyhoo, have a great one!!

  4. Happy Birthday – great song Yesss!! Careful not to spill your coffee on your nicely dried out phone though!

    I think i will always have to keep a ziploc with some rice handy just in case!

    I still need to write my what are you reading this monday as i am working on an assignment and that comes first but it will all work out!

    Have a good workout and a GREAT day


  5. Today is your birthday??! Yesterday was my birthday!


    Next year let’s have a virtual party! Enjoy your special day, honey.

    1. Thanks Jill – its funny because when I set this to post I had thought I had pulled the picture because I thought it was cheesy….

      later on when I looked at the post comments and seen someone had commented on the glasses I was like – WHAT? Yup – there it is.

  6. Happy, Happy Birthday!

    Great choice of birthday song…takes me back!

    I have dropped a phone in the washing up bowl(no fear of that now I have a dishwasher) but freezing your mobile is new to me 🙂

    Thanks for the tip on rice drawing out moisture.


  7. aahh..Happy birthday dear Sheila
    Wish you tons of happiness for the next 365 days

    I have never heard that song before. It’s a fun song.

    Your glasses is so funny.XD

  8. Happy Birthday! Have a wonderful day.

    I used the rice trick this weekend on a TV remote. Worked great. Have had to use it for cell phones in the past as well.

  9. Happy Birthday! I hope you have a wonderful day.

    Thanks for sharing the tip about the cell phone. I hope I never have to use it 🙂

    Have a fun and relaxing time celebrating your birthday with your family and friends.

  10. Oh wow Sheila…it is your birthday! I hope you have a fantastic day full of much fun, joy and peace!

    Happy Birthday friend!!

    By the way, the song is a fun one….glad you chose it to dance around your table. 🙂

  11. Happy BIrthday To You!!!

    Where is Al in all of the festivities…and hopefully you don’ t have to do that thing you do to the furnace today on your special day!!!

    1. Hi Patty – normally AL has a full day on Wednesdays and I do not see him until evening. HOWEVER – he surprised me today and changed his plans so we could go out to dinner! 😀

      (I do have the stove tonight before I go to bed… ia m the only one up to do it!) 😛
