My day worked out as well as it started. The weather was perfect - the only day this week it hasn't rained. Everyone came to my birthday dinner - all the maybe people ended upshowing up. I was astounded by the turnout.
I am now the proud owner of some orchids, a hummingbird feeder, a new functional necklace toy, a sea monster (Playmobil!), and a lovely set of colored pencils in a green leather holder. The cake was rich and tasty - Queen of Tarts proved their reputation yet again. And there's even some leftover for the next several days' worth of desserts.
In other news, C. is not going to Mexico tomorrow.
