Chloe’s last day of 22, she said, “Mom, I don’t think I want to be 23.” I told her to shut up.

And then it was morning, and my child is no longer 22. 😀 She had a lovely day. Breakfast with Bryson, a nice walk, off to teach her art class and a surprise cupcake birthday party from her boss and her students, then a shopping trip for her funky new shoes, (a prezzy from me), and her favourite supper she always asks for: my bacon and leek pasta.

Then she went off climbing with Bryson and her friends, while I finished the blackbird on Mendelssohn.

    Birthday greetings to Chloe

    It was a beautiful day to celebrate. She could reverse the numbers and celebrate her 32nd.

    When I met Jimmy Pattison and told him jokingly I was turning 26 = 62 – He told me it gets better all the time.

    So true.

    Oh to be 23 again. Happy birthday to Clover. I was surprised to know that Cloe and Clove were short for Clover as friends of ours have a daughter named Clover. When the father was a farmer over 30 years ago he was trying to think of a name for his new daughter and while out in the field noticed the clover growing and chose that name. 🙂 I love the blackbird on Mendelssohn. Have a great weekend!

      Thank you Ida, It’s super easy, but maybe that would be fun to do a favourite recipes round here. 😀 This is just bacon friend crisp, a couple/three leeks, pasta and all tossed together with some Romano or Parm. 😀
