Happy Birthday Saturday
Today is The Tim's birthday! Here he is above with his cake (just kidding!).
So far, it's been like most Saturdays - he got up and went to the gym, came home and had a bagel for breakfast, and just now he left the house to go and get a haircut. I offered to make him a special breakfast, etc., but he said no, he just wanted his usual bagel. Clearly we do not have the same approach to things. :-)
However, the rest of the day will be the way we usually celebrate, with some extra fun thrown in. My niece Amanda and her husband Pat are on their way from Baltimore. Once they arrive, we'll do cake and presents, and then later we have dinner reservations at a new restaurant that opened a couple of weeks ago. Then after dinner, we have tickets to an opera (Eugene Onegin) performed by students of the Curtis Institute of Music. Pat has never been to an opera, so we bought tickets for all of us. It should be a fun day and evening, and the best part is that today is Saturday, so the weekend has just begun!
It's always nice when a birthday falls on a weekend, I think. And in the case of The Tim's birthday, it's followed up with Thanksgiving shortly after, which is a lovely bonus, if you ask me.
I hope your weekend is going well, and that you have a chance to enjoy it. Treat yourself!
