happy day

Yesterday was my birthday. We cooked a huge Mexican feast and everyone came over. We hung around in the yard and were all very tipsy. Sasha made horchata with rum, and when all was said and done there were, like, a hundred empty beer cans with lime wedges perched on the rim. It was fabulous. Thanks everyone!!

I'm pretty sure we used every dish in the house. So awesome.

And a birthday gift to myself, or to the household, really. A vintage GMC Sierra, made in 1977—the same year I was born. Look at that thing! Baby we just get better with age, don't we?
