That’s how my mother concluded our conversation this evening. (She’s so cute.) And so I did and hope to!
I figure, owing to my virtuous lifestyle and all, that today I hit the 1/2 way point.
Mr. Big Food kissed me and wished me happy birthday at about 4:30am when he got up– two hours before he brought me coffee.
At around 7am there was some collusion in & around the garage between Daughter C and Miss M. I was not welcome.
Daughter C hugged me and wished me happy birthday before she and Mr. Big Food left for Starkvegas at around 7:20.
Miss M did not have to go to school today. She gave me a bouquet
|of felt-tipped markers around the time I was having a third cup of coffee.|
|This is a big deal. Felt-tipped markers are not all that easy to find these days.|
And because Miss M was home, and it was my birthday, I did not have to do the dishes!
So I pulled up the rest of the beets. I scrubbed up the lawnmowers and put them away– it was 76°– and A. Leland and I and the chain saw and ax &c. headed to the woods.
|It was a hatchet job.|
La de da. It was my birthday.
And then Daughter C and Mr. Big Food arrived at about 6pm and we welcomed a new family member!
|Mr. N.I. Pine.|
He’s great. I can’t wait to hear what he and Missy and Rocky talk about.
And then we got down to dinner.
|steak on the grill|
|and staged stuff|
It was delightful dinner of grilled steak, twice baked potatoes, green beans. Miss M made a great salad…
And then, Mr. Big Food decided to set the place on fire while I opened A. Leland’s gifts and Daughter C read aloud.
What a great day! I mean, seriously. Look at that.
That is some set it on fire end at the evening coffee drink.
