minimalist birthday

Mr. Sophanne's birthday was last Wednesday. Two years ago I went all out with a monkey theme. Last year it was all Mario. This year I had no inspiration and didn't take a day off of work to prepare. The end result was 10 balloons and this:

He walked in as I was feebly attempting to achieve the festive look and said "don't bother- then I won't have to worry about it so much on your birthday." I'm o.k. with that.

Garden gate and fence pictures will be available whenever the rain stops. In the meantime, a patch of sun appeared and Mr. Sophanne and the dog went outside to clean up the sliding board that was once where the garden is now. He wanted me to label this post "Spring Slide Show."

Looks like the dog went down the slide--cool!

Happy birthday to The Mister.

I quit going all out for everybody else's b'day in my house (unless it's a milestone b'day) because nobody does anything for mine until the last second. Sour grapes? You bet! Besides, it cut into my knitting time too much.
