I had a pretty good birthday weekend. MackenzieMom and I went out for drinks and an appetizer when I got off work on Friday, then went to dinner at a relatively nice restaurant (for Cheyenne). I made out like a bandit on gifts, too. Hand-woven kitchen towels, hand-crocheted mesh grocery bags, a new pair of cufflinks, a first printing of The Supreme Court in United States History by Charles Warren (1922), and a signed advance printing of Neil Gaiman’s Stardust (1999). The rest of the weekend, we pretty much sat around and finished watching Dexter, which my mother had not yet seen. All in all, a good time.
In other news, my orchid is beginning to grow a flower stem, which means It’ll bloom in a few weeks. That hasn’t happened in quite a while, so I’m looking forward to it.
