Well, it is birthday week! This is the last week of my 49th year! On Saturday I turn big 50! Although, everyone keeps telling me that 50 is the new 40. I am pretty excited. The past 49 years have been extraordinary, even with the usual twist and turns that life gives everyone. However, there has been way more good than bad. So I look forward to the second half of life, although with all of the cross stitch patterns I have, I need to live to about 175 to stitch them all.
I have decided that I need to find ways to celebrate this entire week. I might carry it into next week, too! It will be kind of like Mardi Gras or the County Fair. I definitely need to wear sequins and bling every day this week. Luckily, my closet is full of sparkly things. Alas, I am lacking a tiara.
I think one of the evenings this week, Liesl needs to take me to our favorite dog friendly restaurant. There is a wonderful restaurant in Carmel, which is like the dog friendliest town ever. Anyway this restaurant has a dog menu and everything. Liesl highly recommends the chicken breast. As soon as they seat you on the patio of this restaurant, they bring you glasses of water and a bowl of water for your dog. Liesl tries to shake down every waiter in the place for her chicken breast. After she is done eating there, she immediately goes into a chicken coma and has to sleep off her partying. Oh, the people food is really super good, too. Very fresh California cuisine.
Ah, well. I shall have to dream about all of the fun I need to have this week. Life is so good!
