Let Them Eat Cake…
…and candy and oysters on Thaddeus’ birthday and Valentine’s Day. Nothing makes us happier than eating. So let them eat cake.
There Remains One Last Piece – So, Let Them Eat Cake
Ordering cake in the mail can’t always guarantee that it will arrive on the exact day of a celebration. Plus, it comes frozen, and requires some level of re-freezing, removal of packaging and defrosting.
That’s why we started eating cake last week.
But we saved one piece (each) for the actual birthday celebration today.
Thaddeus also loves oysters, and has become proficient at shucking them.
Finally there is chocolate covered strawberries and other candy to consume.
Our local chocolatier (Pierre’s Chocolates) does a really nice job of chocolate covered fruits (which Thaddeus loves). So Dr. Atkins can suck it for a week or so.
I know many folks don’t celebrate the faux-holiday today, but please join me in wishing Thaddeus a happy birthday.
In all the pre-holiday/pre-holiday festivities, I was still able to finish another pair of Rose’s Fingerless Mitts using the coned yarn.
I will use up the full cone on as many pairs as I can, and then wash/full them all when they’re finished. My superpower of perseverance will be useful in this endeavor.
