Last weekend was fun. But any time off is fun even if you don't have big plans. I celebrated another birthday and it was perfect, even though I had to work half a day. My boss let me go early so I got home in time to make a fresh loaf of bread for dinner. Nothing like hot fresh bread!
My dear friend Mary Margaret sent me this wonderful candle for my birthday. Since we spend as much time as we can sitting outside for meals, this will be well used. I didn't even notice it spelled out my name until we had it lit on the table. Thoughtful and creative gift!
Since I picked the menu I went with an international theme. Cuban Mojitos, sushi, fresh bread, cheeses and fresh strawberries. The refreshing Mojitos went very well with sushi - especially when you get too much wasabi on a salmon roll.
Strawberries are in season here and they are juicy, nice and sweet. Great evening, meal and company. We sat outside and waited for the foxes to come by and eat, plugged in the patio lights and lit candles.
That's one of my favorite things to do in the evening - just sit outside, listen to the birds, watch the wildlife and chat with my thoughtful husband. We make retirement plans, weekend plans, sip our drinks and give Aja treats. Life is good.
