Still teaching kids the multiplication tables after 30 years.  ~M

So you’re miserable because you’re not allowed to be on your allergy meds all this week and at work there are HOW many people in the queue?!?! Bummer.

The happy thought? um… that work does come to an end around 5 or 530? ~N

The birthday present Mike ordered for me came yesterday.  He wrapped it and now Pedro is guarding it to make sure I don’t peek.  ~M

Small group tonight but we ate well. We cooked chicken and asparagus with Velute sauce (like gravy) Joel brought the sweetest watermelon ever and Amanda brought the makings for sundaes! – n

Look at my new swift Eric bought for my birthday!  When the kit came I’ve been waiting for and the skeins needed to be wound, he brought it out and set it up for me to use.  Then put it away for me to open on my birthday.  Isn’t he sweet?  ~M

Finally setup and organized the clothes, shoes, closet… no longer grabbing clothes from a suitcase! woohooo! And Darren did fab work under the house today *and* fixed the heaters! ~N

It’s nice to have a smidge of company whilst I exercise.  ~M

*******

At at a sushi place with Adrienne and Darren then headed to Chris’s to celebrate Mike’s 15th bday! ~N

(Yes that is octopus, there was an octopus salad that Adrienne decided we all had to try. The general vote is that octopus is kinda chewy.)

Nicole came to pick up Adrienne to sleepover.  ~M

 (Darren and Nicole are simply wonderful loving brother and sister to Adrienne.  She is one lucky little girl.  And she knows it.)

I missed Pedro’s mischieviousness so much I had Mike go rescue him from the Christmas box.  I found my little sprite had gotten into my smarties this morning.  Silly Pedro.  ~M

**********

Had a lovely chat and got to catch up with a few girls I’ve know for forever then hung out at Chris’s house and lost at a game of Settlers of Catan. ~N

Best anti-depressant ever: the sea.  My headache was so bad I couldn’t drive, so Eric drove me out before work.  I couldn’t even get out of the car. So we sat in the car and watched the tide come in and the gulls pick up shell critters, drop them on the rocks till they cracked open and eat them.  It was a gorgeous lovely thing for Eric to do for me.  ~M

Carrie and Joel came for dinner last night :) ~N

This is terrible photo cuz the color is wrong, but you can see the design on top-which is the point.

This is the real color!  This sock knit mostly during Mike’s root canal this morning.    ~M

In one episode we find out that, due to transporter interference, there are actually *two* Will Rikers wandering thru the universe. I’m still not sure how i feel about this thought. ~N
