Tuesday thoughts about the weekend past

Friday was Mark’s 64th birthday. I made a pie on Thursday night, so that we could come home after the first Madison symphony of the season on Friday and have pie and ice cream. We went out for dinner on Saturday, and I made his request for brunch on Sunday, but I don’t think I […]

Birthday dinner

  Julia Child’s birthday is August 15th, which was a Saturday this year, so that seemed like as good a reason as any to have my birthday dinner that night, even though my real birthday was the Tuesday before. Julia turned 103 – I’m a lot younger, I just feel like 103 sometimes. We had […]

Happy Birthday to Me

Last year my birthday was on a Monday, and I made pie and took it to a meeting. This year it was a Tuesday. We went to Chicago, looked at a new apartment, and went to baseball with the John and Megan. We picked them up at John’s apartment and a few of the guys, […]

It’s been a long, cold, week

Culminating in my mother’s and Eustace Tilley’s 90th birthdays. Eustace, the fictional dandy who was on the first New Yorker magazine cover,  and my mom both arrived around February 22, 1925. It used to be George Washington’s birthday, too, but now we have President’s Day. I left off with pumpkin stuff and soup, last Saturday. […]

Dad’s 94th

Today is my dad’s 94th birthday, except he’s not here to celebrate it with us, having passed away in November 1998, a little more than a month before he would’ve turned 78. I noted his birthday by adding a picture to his Wikipedia page – I wonder how long it’ll stay. Thanks to linked data, […]

Mark’s birthday eve

Tomorrow is Mark’s 63rd birthday, so I’m going down to Chicago for a fun day. The plan is to meet at the Metra station in Schaumburg – I’ll be driving, he’ll take the train – and then head to Ikea for more apartment furnishing shopping. We’ll get some form of lunch – Maggiano’s in Schaumberg, […]

Birthday Pie

I made myself a birthday pie to share at an afternoon meeting tomorrow. What birthday? … it’s hidden in the file names.

Almost Saturday Night

With apologies to Dave Edmunds. [and this was only started when it was almost Saturday night; finished on Sunday] I guess, since I haven’t written since Wednesday, and even then was writing about Sunday – we are due for a wrap-up. Wednesday was Mark’s birthday. We took him out for dinner at Pig in a […]

Happy birthday to me

Sunday. It was kind of a funny one. Got up, probably too early for a birthday, and did a little yoga because it was raining, so I could neither walk nor bike to the co-op for more groceries for vegan dinner part 2. I did my 15-minute Rodney Yee AM stretch, followed by a 5-minute […]

Mimi’s Sweet 16

My niece, Amelia, known as Mimi, is 16 today. She is the most UN-sweet-16 girl you can imagine, so I was totally at a loss as to what to get for her. A shirt I sent her years ago that I thought was pretty hip – photo prints on a t-shirt – was deemed too […]
