St. Patrick’s Day in NYC.
It’s my friend Lina’s birthday today. When she converted to her husband’s religion, she gave up celebrating birthdays.
Today is the last official three day weekend until Memorial Day.
Last night is when I finally bought my husband his Valentine’s Day gift.
New York was sprinkled today with the sights of Valentine’s Day. It’s not my favorite holiday day, but I can appreciate its festive nature in the middle of a drab winter.
Our annual Mardi Gras party happened yesterday and today I decided it was time to take the decorations down.
I love king cake!
I’ve have baked a king cake yearly, on and off, since 2006. I find the precarious nature of baking a cake with a bread like consistency challenging and rewarding.
I’m currently on a 9-hour train trip to NYC. It’s 6 degrees outside and snow abounds.
