Very Good Day

Thank you so much for the Birthday Wishes.  It was wonderful to see and read all the emails/comments throughout the day.

Ive learned that since my birthday lands in the “after Christmas dead zone” I have to speak up a day or so ahead and remind people.  Not something Im comfortable with doing and obviously fell out of practice when I grew out of childhood (I know I had to shout it from the mountains then – dont all kids?)

Another fun tradition I started last year is me cooking my birthday dinner.  Sounds a bit wrong but I get everything I want and can bet on having leftovers for lunch the next day.  A gift that keeps giving :p

Tonight’s menu is:

Morton’s tri tip (Costco)

Homemade jojo potatoes

Salad with White Vinaigrette dressing, Blue Cheese crumbles, & dried cherries (Costco)


Dessert – three signature ice cream mixes from Cold Stone.  After Dinner Mint (only available during Christmas/Winter), Mud Pie and Founders with Almonds.

D got me Zumba for the Xbox Kinect.  Will be waiting for at least tomorrow before trying it out.  Too much ice cream tonight :) 

This has been one of those weeks where Im so thankful I have one of those microwave-able herb packs at work.  its been sooo cold its been about the only thing that will get me warmed back up.  3 min of wait and 15 min of wonderful warmth

Now ending the day with day 5 of the Crazy Challenge

Today I started Snowy Globe by Cross-Eyed Cricket.  I was only able to get one piece of thread stitched.  Im pleased with even that much due to how full the day was.
