Something that may strike you as odd – I have never thrown a birthday party. Well, that ends this year. I am working on the e-vite for Carver’s birthday party. I’ve been very excited about it for a few weeks now, and Saturday I finally got details from Carver regarding guests. We decided to do a simple barbecue. Relax, have a few drinks and some good food. Very much our kind of event. There are certain menu items I am already certain on (yellow cake, chocolate frosting, homemade ice cream), and the others will come together over the next couple of weeks…. Finding enough candles will be the hardest part I’m sure.
Were you kind to yourself yesterday? I had to talk myself down a bit yesterday morning after an email I received. It worked fairly well, but the rest of the day was pretty inflammatory as well. Certainly a practice in patience. Anyways, I viewed the day as a success as I kept the majority of my negativity in check.
Cody is desperate to go outside for a walk, and I am desperate to stay inside under a blanket with a warm cup of coffee in my hands. I’m thinking he is going to win this battle… we are in the midst of a cool down here in the desert. When I left for the gym this morning (yep, that’s two days in a row!) it was 41 degrees!! There is something up with our thermostat in the house so it’s even chilly in here. Anyways I was browsing for sweaters for Cody and I found the most adorable pattern!! Yes, I believe I will be making Cody a (fairly large) sweater. Stay tuned for photos and the pattern. I am going to chug down the rest of this coffee and bundle up so I can get the pup some exercise.
