animal lover, gardener, knitter, and gourmet cook

the big 5-0

My 50th birthday was on Friday. Jake and I celebrated by ordering takeout from Franklin Street Bar & Grill (one of my favorite places!). Later that evening I fired up the chiminea and we made campfire cones and then we worked on a puzzle for a bit while watching Cheers. It was a nice day.

On Saturday, we went to my parents’ for a cookout (also for my birthday and kind of my brother’s, which was in May). It’s the first time we’ve gotten together since February due to the state of the world.

Sunday was a free day so I did a bunch of stuff around the house and walked dogs at the shelter.
