First I thought I would be a little considerate and let her sleep in without doing my usual routine of coming next to her side of the bed and start my scratching, shaking my big ears and licking my legs. I waited a little longer (really it is about the time and as we move towards daylight savings I get up about a minute later each day)
Once everyone was up our usual Saturday morning started with breakfast, a trip to Farmers Market (of course I did not get the chance to see people or the wonderful organic vegetables but when Dad came home he did take me for a walk).
Mom went out with her friend for lunch to Seasons 52 – a Century City restaurant that has food with the seasonal changes – and us guys stayed home and prepared a cool gluten-free meal for mom.
I love cooking in the kitchen with Dad. We made zucchini lasagna and a zucchini sour cream pie. I know we hooked it up good because when Mom came home she said the house-smelled great and she sampled our hard work.
After dinner I lounged, Dad watched some TV and Mom did some work. Even with birthdays we still have stuff to do. We are a working family with lots of projects but we do appreciate our birthday gifts and that is being a family and appreciating our blessings.
The weather was a beautiful sunny 70 degrees Santa Monica for Mom’s birthday. Not to be too narcissistic but her day was much more beautiful than my birthday but I’ll give that to her this year.
