Sapo Verde

Oh hai. Today's mah birthday! I'm entering my mid-late twenties, and I'm thrilled. My life just gets easier as I get older. We kicked off the day with a call at the stroke of midnight with my friend Adela calling from Lima to wish me a happy birthday. Good timing Adela! We had a great chat about her travels in the Southern Cone and in Peru, and her future plans to farm in Northern California. Talking about farming made me miss my days on my friend Anne's farm, which was transitioning to organic at the time. While I don't have the greenest thumb, I learned a lot from Anne and ate very, very well. Muffin sent me to bed with a hug, and I slept rilly rilly well.

I'm looking forward to hanging out tonight with a bunch of friends and having a great time. PS- my crush called me last night...

Here's the Stevie Wonder version of Happy Birthday for you. When I worked in public housing in Chicago, whenever we had a birthday party we always sang this right after singing the "other" version. Clap it out.

Nothing like a birthday celebration that leaves a full-body hangover the next day! A success I think.
