It is lucky that C's birthday is in the spring, as he always wants artichokes for dinner. Until last week I've had no luck finding any, not even bad ones. Last week I found some bad-ish ones, but I managed to get halfway decent ones for today. So for dinner - artichokes and apple pie (instead of cake).
Other than the sweater, I got him this kite:
Except it's all in black and the yin-yangs are rainbow colored. Whee! It is good for a wide range of wind speeds, which is why I chose it. Too bad he wasn't feeling quite well enough to fly it today (if you've never flown a stunt kite, they are quite a workout, especially if, like me, you suck at it and crash them so have to run and set it back up).
Happy 31st to the love of my life. May I be so lucky as to wish you many, many more happy birthdays. :)
