A Good Day

Today turned out to be quite a good day. We had a bar-b-que to celebrate my 28th birthday. The weather turned out much better today than if we had done it last weekend. I was pleasantly surprised. I cooked up 14 steaks and two bratwurst on the grill and everything was tasty! My daughter made a mean fruit salad and my wife put together a scrumptious pasta salad with baby spinach. There were a total of five cakes as well. What a feast!
Of course, before all that could happen we had to do a lot of work around the house. We spent a few hours outside cleaning up the yard and then I tilled up the garden a bit. Now I'm starting to feel as if I may have gotten just a bit too much sun, my mind is quite foggy and I have the beginnings of what seems to be a nasty headache coming on. Was it worth it? I think so. I don't generally have a lot of good family experiences and today turned out to be an unexpected treat. Ah, and so the stars align.

On Saturday we had the kid's carnival. My wife had a migraine from over-working herself, shame shame, so we had to cut it a little short, but the kids and I had fun while we were there and I did get a chance to get some pics for later use as writing prompts. Yay!

I think I may have to cut this post short today, maybe tomorrow I'll be feeling better. I hope you all had a wonderful weekend! For those of you waiting for the next installment of the Lyric Writing series, stay tuned, it's coming soon.

Interesting. It was my 49th. My daughter came round with a box of cookies, the same Woody Allen book she gave me of Xmas (it's the thought that counts) and Family Guy season six. She's doing an Open University course so we spent the evening talking about the various concepts of knowledge which was most enjoyable. I love having a daughter who can hold her own in an intelligent conversation. She'll be 28 in July. God, I feel old.

Happy Birthday, fellow Tauran.

A BBQ sounds like a nice way to spend the day.
