I'm going to try to catch up today so I can start blogging in real time again. I totally failed at NaBloPoMo, despite my best intentions, but there's definitely a middle ground between rocking the above and just slacking completely. Right? Please say yes.

Nina got so many cool gifts for her birthday, but the present opening was super haphazard this year with no list for thank you notes, so I'm going to do it here. Thank you so much everyone. The list of fantastic gifts includes (but is not limited to) a great new wardrobe of hand me down clothes from her friends, a fun hemp and wooden bead jewelry making kit, shadow puppets, a Nina Ballerina wooden doll, some more clothes, and, like I said, more fantastic stuff that I'm forgetting because I'm only halfway done with my coffee.

After lovely visits, my sister and her friend left on Sunday and my inlaws left on Monday. Giving me two days to put the house back in order and have co-op unpacking on Wednesday night and pickup on Thursday. And pack to leave Thursday afternoon to visit my sister in the bay area and go work at GreenFest. I've written about that already, but suffice it to say that it was funfunfun. And I would do it again in a heartbeat (thanks, mom, for taking care of Nina). I got home on Monday, Tuesday had an ICAN meeting at my house, Friday had a birthday party at my mom's house with my book group after. Saturday morning I got up and went with my mom to Lakeside where she had arranged for us to go on a trail ride, which was so much fun that I was sore afterward. Sunday was my birthday and a harvest party our friends have annually. We celebrated my birthday too.

Now for some pictures...

Happy belated birthday mama!

Before I forget (bcs I always do), do you still want to borrow our scooter?
