For some reason Blogger won’t let me upload photos. It keeps pretending to and then nothing happens. So you’ll have to USE THE POWER OF YOUR IMAGINATIONS to picture this:
Delicious Eggs Benedict with avocado I had for breakfast on my birthday and the photo booth strips that Graham and I did afterwords. I was actually still not feeling good (stupid cold) so we did about HALF of what I had planned for the day. I ended up going to breakfast, seeing a movie at 10:30am, and then heading home for a nap, before finishing the evening with Ethiopian food with my friends Michael and Ben.
An incredible picnic evening I had on Thursday as part of my ongoing birthday celebration. The heat broke finally in New York, and on Thursday night Graham and I ventured with our friends Jenna and Rachel to Prospect Park for a picnic supper. It was one of those glorious evenings where you could SMELL the fall in the air. I sat on the grass an INHALED it deeply. Then when it got dark, we lit candles on a birthday cake, and I got sung to. I love candles and cake and outside and friends singing. Oh yes I do.
The pink carnations blooming on my kitchen table. I have never been a carnation gal, but I have suddenly become VERY enamored with pink carnations. I have some buds about to BURST in a jug on my kitchen table. They are the color of birthday cake icing, the color of soft spring, the color of clouds at the end of a children’s book.
Thank you for my birthday wishes and for the compliments on my 25.5 week gut. The boy keeps growing and incredibly so do I.
