birthday weekend

I had Friday off work, so I got to enjoy two long weekends in a row! If only every weekend was a long weekend. I did a lot of painting and gardening over the course of the three days. The weather was so beautiful! On Friday, I tried out my new pizza oven. I will tweak a few things the next time I use it, but, for my first try, I was pretty happy with how the pizzas turned out.

On my actual birthday (Sunday), I tried not to do too much work around the house (though I did do a little). I started off the day by drinking my morning coffee by the pond and also read a book for a little while. After lunch, Jake and I took the dogs for a walk on the Jim Mayer Riverswalk Trail. They were nice and tired after that. That evening, I finished planting my garden (which is technically one of my favorite hobbies, so it doesn’t count as work).
