My birthday gift

I had a nice lunch of fish tacos courtesy of my coworkers for my birthday. The plant and a card came with it.

Molly decided that she’d had enough, so she got into the wine early. Thankfully, it was cleaned up before I got home from work.

I had several homework assignments due that day, so, while I was working on them, my daughter was busy in my room hanging new bookshelves. I haven’t had time yet to arrange the books on them, but she gave me a good start.

I also got a mug and some bookmarks. They were great. I just didn’t get photos of them.

I was asked what I wanted for my birthday. I requested shrimp scampi.

My history teacher gave me multiple assignments to be due on my birthday.

My daughters made sure that I got my scampi by sending me to the grocery store.

It was a reasonably good birthday. Just a lot going on.

Birthday adventures

We were going to the store Monday night, but when I picked my oldest up from class I got a “how about we go to dinner? Do you think you can stay awake through it? If we get it to go, I am afraid you’ll go to sleep and not eat.” She was right. I must have looked like Crap if my oldest noticed. This was at 7:30 pm.  We went to dinner and then I slept through until morning.  After I got home.

Tuesday was my birthday. Starbucks alerted me that I got a birthday reward.  I went through the drive thru since my regular Starbucks was under construction.  I ordered and was asked to pull up to the first window.  Great!  Especially since there was only one window.

My kids and I went to lunch at a restaurant that I hadn’t been to in ages.  I got a glass of cheap wine with lunch.  It was perfect.

We went to class.  I set up for working on two projects.  I am at a standstill on two others, because I am waiting for a delivery from the art supply store.

I made progress on my experimental work.  I have been playing with textures this semester.

I made progress on my diptic project.

I painted myself, as usual.

I picked up my own birthday cake. It looked better than it was. I prefer whipped cream to butter cream under the fondant.

My daughter didn’t know if my other daughter liked princess cake, so she got a mini cheesecake, too.

It was a decent day, everything considered.
