I have awakened upon this, the occasion of my 42nd natal day, with a killer headache. Probably not enough water yesterday. ‪#‎hydrates‬

Yesterday I served up bbq pulled pork, applesause, potato salad, pasta salad, green salad, and baked beans for the family. I made everything except the baked beans, which Mom made. It was all really really good, although as Sarah pointed out, in retrospect, too much work for my own birthday. (Mom DID offer to host, but for some reason I said nah, it’s cool. Somewhere around hour 4 of being in the kitchen cooking and doing dishes I decided I’d chosen poorly, but it was far too late by then. *laughs*)

My younger nephew, who is quite a good artist, did up a birthday card for me. On the envelope there was a drawing of a ptranodon, which was saying, “Careful! There’s a T-Rex inside!”

Inside, there was a drawing of a T-Rex saying, “Happy birfday!” with an astrisked note below saying, “He said “birfday” instead of “birthday” because it’s hard for T-Rexes to talk.” *laughs and laughs*

Dessert was an *exceptionally* good lemon cake (this recipe, but this time I added about a quarter teaspoon of salt and a splash of vanilla, and OMG), which I also made, and it was an altogether lovely afternoon. Thank you, family, for coming over!

Also, happy birthday shout-outs to all my birthday twins! Lynette! Novella! Michelle! And Morgan Freeman, Marilyn Monroe and Superman, too! :)

Happy birthday! If I knew it was your birthday, I would have baked a cake. (And then eaten it, since you are too far away to bring it to. But it's the thought that counts.)

I hope the next year brings you All the Wonderful Thinks.

I can just see you rockin' it with Morgan Freeman, Marilyn Monroe, and Superman.

Happy Birthday! Now you are 42, which means you not merely know, but are, the secret of everything.

Are you life? Or the universe? Or everything?

Happy birthday! The card from your nephew was hilarious.

I too once cooked my own birthday dinner, though for fewer people. Have not done that again.

Happy (slightly late) birthday! Hope the headache faded quickly so that you could enjoy today too.
