Birthday Bouquets And Other Tales Of The Day
Could there be a better birthday present then the sight of my child helping sort this week's CSA picks? We didn't do what I had originally planned because Izzy wanted to stay home to sort the vegetables with Farmer Rich. As you can see I had trouble arguing with that.
Going to Madison Square park to hear Elizabeth Mitchell sing simply couldn't compete with bunches of fresh, fragrant oregano. So we stayed home and helped (besides, no other volunteers were forthcoming).
Farmer Rich gave me extra daisies in honor of my birthday so I'm glad we stuck around.
Later on it was off for some baked goods at our local, organic bakery, Made With Love.
Then dinner at Marco and Pepe with my very well-behaved companion... We clinked glasses and I received birthday wishes. He had pineapple juice, I a Lingonberry cocktail.
There was no room for dessert but there is still the promise of tomorrow.
