It’s so weird to look back and realize my birthday was only a week ago?!
It feels like it’s been a month.
We don’t usually do much for birthdays around here, but I was feeling a little sad that the normal minor stuff is off the table this year – you know how it is.
So Son made me instant ramen (with a hard boiled egg that happened to be in the fridge, imitation crab, and nori). It’s the little things.
Our thai basil is flowering. Gardening video coming up soon!
Birthday WoW and a pistachio cupcake my mom made me! It was so fluffy and so delicious.
Son wanted to have a candle for my birthday pudding, but we couldn’t find any around the house (aside from a couple of tea candles). I texted my mom, and she responded, “let’s facetime so you can pick which ones you want…”
Turns out she has an entire shoebox filled with every single birthday candle she ever got since I was a baby, so there were OPTIONS.
I picked these rainbow polka dot ones. I’m never gonna have to buy candles again.
Birthday dinner! Instead of presents, my mom cooks for us. Normally we ask for cake, but this year (since I was already planning on making something sweet) I asked her to make my grandma’s teriyaki chicken recipe.
This is my happy place.
Surprise cake showed up at our door!
Son’s brother’s girlfriend ordered cake to be delivered from a local bakery.
It’s our local neighborhood gargoyle.
It’s been super gloomy all week. Fall is finally here!
It smelled like rain. But alas, only a few overnight sprinkles.
Found the grass’ ass.
This was *supposed* to be a picture of brussels sprouts.
It was maybe a little dark in the kitchen.
I’m entirely losing track of what day it is, we’ve just been going going going with filming and such… hence the late post.
Hope you have a good week… and don’t forget to vote if you’re in the US and able to!
