Lucky Number 33
Tuesday, 25 January 2011 20:14

For the second year in a row, we awoke to no heat on my birthday. Last year, it was because of major flooding that filled our cellar with rain water (which is the room that houses the boiler). This year? The blower motor went caput... whatever that means. It was all up and running by afternoon time and the house had only gotten down to 55 degrees. What can I say? Everything has its own way of celebrating birthdays. Furnaces, in my case, stop working.

Speaking of birth days, our friends Jesse and Brooke welcome their second born into the world today, beautiful little Oona Demarco, born this morning and weighing in at a whopping 9 lbs and 14 oz. Welcome to our planet, little one! I'll save you a piece of my cake, just for sharing my birthday.


The Earthy Cowboy has started a tradition of getting me a specialty cake each year for my birthday, a different flavor every time, from our favorite local bakery.
