My Brilliant Birthday Month – Part 2

Well, here I sit looking out the window on the official first day of spring plus two as we dig out from yet another two days of a blizzard that dumped more than a foot of snow on us.  Kinda makes me want to curl up for a long winter’s nap in a cozy drawer. 

Miss Kiri Kat -- "Wake Me When It's Spring!"

Spring has missed her cue, yet again.  Can someone cue her a little louder from the wings, please?  Still, I have confidence she will eventually take center stage.  I only hope she gets to do her number before summer gives her the hook.  I do love a lovely spring. 
You will recall from my last post that February was my birthday month and I definitely made the most of it (See My Brilliant Birthday Month – Part 1).  I celebrated all month with a memorable opera at the Met, lunches and dinners with old and new friends and was royally spoiled with gifts.  Take a peek at a few of them…

My Brilliant Birthday Month – Part 1

I’ll bet you thought I’d forgotten about you, my lovely readers.  Never – just been on a bit of a post-birthday, blogger breather break.  As you may remember from my last post, February was my birthday month and the festivities stretched over the whole month and three States.  There was a truly memorable opera in New York, and there were lunches and dinners with old friends and the unexpected pleasure of making new ones courtesy of my cousin in France. 

We only had one opera on our Met Opera schedule in February, but what an opera it was!!  The night before, Dan and I celebrated my birthday at one of our favorite restaurants, Nougatine at Jean-Georges in the Trump International Hotel on Central Park.
