Monkey Birthday

Monkey's birthday was Sunday, folks. Here she does her birthday dance at the top of Coyote Bluff. I hope she had a good one (both birthday and dance). She did get two pies. One apple from me, and a key lime from Aunt James.

A rousing happy hour this past Friday, with topics of conversation ranging from Mormons to foreskin reclamation procedures (don't ask), left me feeling a bit under the weather on Saturday. Nonetheless, Monkey and I headed to Rock Bridge for a short hike. We had a nice one, and returned home in plenty of time for me to fix the toilet, mow the lawn, and make potato salad and a pie. Not in that order.

Monkey and I went to dinner to celebrate her birthday, but I was still feeling poorly, so I hardly ate any of my dinner. We went to see Thank You for Smoking after. It was good, but there was a trio of pinheads sitting in front of us who forgot that they were not in their living room (which is probably in somebody's mom's basement--and these guys were at least forty). It was so bad that even I shooshed them. I rarely shoosh anyone.

Sunday, which was supposed to include birding, was scrapped. I rallied for the Sopranos (you know, I made the potato salad, after all), but hit the hay as soon as we got home.

Work today was weird. I just felt out of it all day.

I think I'm skipping basketball.

Some pics from the hike (I'm getting better with the macro function).

Yay Monkey birthday day! We celebrate and love fabulous Monkey!

Reda, you got mad micro skills. And I mean that as a compliment. Excellent pics. One of my colleagues just got back from a week in Ireland (I know, all we do here at this CC is jaunt around Europe), and she took spectacular pictures and then compiled the most amazing scrapbook I have ever seen. Ah, it is a true gift to have an eye and the skills for captivating photography.

Ugh, I am sorry to hear you are sick! Cease and desist anything that involves effort. And feel better soon!
