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.
