I had meant to write this post earlier but it has been a hectic time. Mostly in a good way but with a fair amount of stress involved. I took off work for Thursday and Friday because it was my birthday. Nick came up on a bus and we had a great time. Some family friends gathered on the patio and there was delicious food and love and caring. *and realtors and roommates calling about apartments* One of my bosses has a cake business on the side and surprised me with a delicious cake. It was marble cake with buttercream frosting and raspberries and chocolate ganache filling. Needless to say, the leftovers are gone.

The next day, I took Nick on a date to the opera. We made a picnic lunch and ate it before the opera started. Then, we were chased by a baby elephant! They are the work of a local artist and they never fail to make me smile. The opera itself was spectacular. I'm so glad that I was able to get extremely discounted tickets for it. Aida, I had never seen it before. It was so lovely, the singing, the everything.

I had a good two day break and and am back to work. Today has been a slow day at my retail job so I've been feeling useless. My boss came in and told me to take a nap. Benefits of a day this slow include that I wrote a few of you letters. Keep an eye on the mailboxes folks! Hoping your week is off to a good start.
