Happy Birthday, Easter, and Passover!!!

IT'S MY BIRTHDAY!

Although with social isolation and the fact I live alone, I'm not doing much to celebrate. I picked up some chocolate cheesecake at the store on Friday, and I have wine. I may splurge on a movie at Amazon. Otherwise, it's another quiet day at home with Claude the cat and Finn the fish. 



Today also marks two different holidays, Easter and Passover (halfway through Passover, actually), for many people around the world. Both my brother and I have April birthdays and have had our birthdays fall on Easter before. Our birthdays tend to get lost in the holiday shuffle when that happens. This year, it's the Coronavirus pandemic overshadowing our days. Ah well, we'll get together and celebrate when our exile from the realm is over. 

Enjoy your day; happy Easter, and chag sameach!

  4. yea! Happy Birthday. My daughter's birthday was last week as well. My local relatives did a driveby and dropped off gifts and the end of the driveway. She did a Zoom call with her besties. Our neighbor made her a cake. It was a good day. I hope you enjoyed yours!

    1. That does sound like a good day! Happy birthday to her. I had a good one; my brother brought over brownies and we chatted with a whole yard between us. :D I had a zoom call with some of my besties today which was fun.

      I hope you all are doing well!

  5. Hope you and your brother both have lovely birthdays. A chocolate cheesecake and a movie sounds rather nice. My birthday is the beginning of May and I kind of assumed all this would be over by that point but I don't think that's the case now. I may have to borrow your chocolate cheesecake idea! That sounds delicious. Have a great week!
