Birthday niceness

Last year the gang chipped in to get me a birthday present, or that was the idea. What happened was no one actually organized the gift-getting part, so the gift-giving stage was delayed by, um, 363 days.

Last night Tim showed up to game night with a spiffy box of culinary niceness, one of the pieces my kitchen was lacking: a Le Creuset 7-1/4-Quart Round French Oven in Cherry Red.


This and my replacement Palm are all I expect (and more!) as far as birthday goodies go, though my actual birthday isn't until tomorrow. Kate made me a necklace of beads and gave it to me early since I was receiving the French Oven last night. My mom watched Kate for us while I was in England as her gift to me this year. I was supposed to go out for cocktails with the girls tonight but everyone had to cancel. I decided not to go to Liz Phair this weekend so I wouldn't miss Christine's birthday party. I may buy myself tickets to the Seattle Arts & Lecture event on Monday if tickets are still available, but that's pretty much the extent of my celebration plans. Maybe I can still gather some people for dinner on Sunday and break in this French Oven in style...
