I had a good Birthday

I was left alone in my new TO home on my birthday so I made plans.
I went first to a friends house is Mississauga. I had not seen her in a very long time. I had not yet seen her new house she moved into 6 years ago. So I guess it has been awhile. You know when you have a friend you have not seen in a long time but the conversation continues like you chatted yesterday? It's like that. I knew her since she was 5. Her link is on my sidebar.
Getting into the maze of crescents and finding her house challenge was met, so was finding my way out and continuing on to Burlington to see my other sister. I got to my other sisters house and took a nap while soccer matches were played and awards handed out. They are soccer parents you understand... My sister then took me bowling. I have not been bowling on my birthday since I was a little kid. LOL! It was fun. Then we stopped off at the soccer party and got directions to a Lebanese Restaurant. I have a quest to find Shish Taouk in the Toronto area. This was as close as I got so far. In this restaurant they call it shish taook. It's close to the food I am used to. It was also very tasty. La Luna was the name of the restaurant and if you are in Hamilton or Burlington you may want to try it. You will like it.
Then we went back to the soccer party. It was an all day, all night party. Lots of martinis, lots of beer for the adults only of course. Me, I stuck with water. The soccer kids swam in the pool and played in the house while their parents had a good time.
I got to meet lots of interesting soccer parents.
I got to drive my sisters car. It was all good.
I stayed there overnight and found my way back home this morning to my cosy little dungeon with no problem. Now what am I going to do today?

Sounds like fun!
Bowling for birthday's is always fun... my friends and I went bowling in celebration of mine, in fact :P
And you got to drive someone else's car!
I'll stop being crazed now :)
Your friend sounds really nice. Friendships that can last that long are the best kind, and visiting seems like the perfect birthday treat!

bowling is highly underated!
Glad you had a nice birthday.
My weekend was busy to start. I spent Saturday chillin'. I am home today b/c I have the flu. Good staff meeting for me.
I am exhausted though.

Sounds like a great time Barbara! I haven't been bowling for a while. Last time I went I ended up hurting my hip, can you believe it? lol I hope you found something fun and are out having fun :)

Barbara said...

Cool Becky... maybe it's a Leo thing?
Sarah the flu?? Poor you. take it easy then.
welcome Senor cheeseburger.
Mellowlee funny you should mention pain after bowling. For some reason today I am feeling the pain in my posterior. I went out today to check out my neighbourhood and ended up on young street. I found a place that serves what they call poutine (but they use chedder)then I went to see Bon Cop Bad Cop.
I loved that movie! Very entertaining!!!
There is a scene in it where they bash Rick Mercers head against an anchor desk! Priceless!

mellowlee said...

Haha! Rick Mercer makes me laugh so hard. I will have to see that movie for sure! The best poutine I have had is at a place on Commercial called "Belgian Fries". They use cheese curds thank goodness. Yummmm!

Waya said...

I haven't bowl in soooo many many years. Happy b-lated b-day btw! And this is a coinkidink, I was talking to a friend about Lebanese food this weekend too. I've never had it but would love to try it someday.

I'm glad you got to do some partying on your birthday, even if you stuck to water. I would have avoided the soccer games as well.

Alana said...

Happy super belated Birthday, Barbara! Sorry I wasn't around to say it on time, but I'm doing it now, so it still counts! HAPPY BIRTHDAY!

Barbara said...

mellowlee I will look out for belgian fries... I am still loosing weight I have to find good poutine quick.
Waya the great thing about lebanese food it it's tasty spicy but not hot spicy. It's also a healthy mix of meat and veggies...
Barbara B I don't miss alcohol (I can take it or leave it) today I celebrtated my bday again for the 8th time and I had a bubble tea that's more fun than a martini.
Thank you Alana I continue to celebrate it as long as people keep wishing me happy birthday. :-)
