The first sign of my birthday. A giant package was sitting outside the front door. First, this made me think, I miss working at S&S where I could send packages easy peasy. Second, I opened it and a great day had begun. My friend Julia sent me this sign and said now I have everything I need to open my own bakery. And that's all I could dream about for the rest of the day.

There are so many fantastic things about the State Fair (click that). I don't think I had been to a state fair since high school and then it was just for the *awesome* concerts at night. It is so much better than that. Like all the amazing arranged photo opportunities.
Instead of going to see a movie we went to see roller derby. Because why not, it's your birthday and you've always been curious. One girl had pumpkin underwear on the outside of her spandex.
Andy made sure Z could rest warmly.
I haven't really said this yet, but I'm basically unemployed these days. I still have three jobs, but they all seem to be on hold right now. It kind of stinks except that it allows me the time to be a stay at home mom with no kids. So, this is my mid-yardwork boot. What a shame. Granted, I have had these since 2000 when I did a backpacking trip in Colorado with YoungLife.
This is my post-yardwork hair. I did find small twigs in it later.
Elisabeth gave us a garbage bag full of basil from their garden at the river. I guess we will be making some pesto!
