Numerous friends and family celebrate this month - including me - and its also the month when some of my all time favourite friends from school days celebrate and those dates have always stuck with me.
I fully admit though I'm super lousy at sending cards. I'm fabulous at buying them, filling them in, addressing and even putting stamps on them. I just have a problem with mailing or delivering them. Nonetheless I always do remember those people on their special May days. So between celebrating family birthdays and remembering birthdays of friends with cards I can't seem to send haunting me the whole month you can see how May really is the birthday month in my mind.
In the whole month though, today is my favourite because its the anniversary of the arrival of this spectacular human being...
Since he was three months old, that smile has been an almost permanent fixture on his face. It does feature more teeth now though! (And the head - at least for the moment, has a lot more hair.)
He's requested spaghetti and Banana Chocolate cake for dinner. I'll also make a salad - he'll enjoy pushing it around on his plate; and garlic bread - he'll enjoy pushing that down his throat!
The festivities won't be helpful for knitting. I did rip back the Cabling on Tangled Yoke as planned so maybe after the dishes are done tonight I'll be able to squeeze in taking a run at the set up row.
And speaking of squeezing in knitting, it suddenly occurred to me I need some car knitting ASAP as the first long weekend of the summer and opening of the cottage is this weekend! I'm thinking about socks for that purpose and I have a few tantalizing possibilities in my wee tiny stash.
Retro Rib Socks from Interweave's "Favourite Socks" using my new "Tanis" yarn is currently leading the pack.
No doubt the butter has now sufficiently softened to allow for creaming - I'd better get to baking that cake! Have a great day!
