August 20th Comes Again

The world-with-a-small-blonde-girl began twenty-five years ago today.
Last night we had A&C over for home-made ice cream and multiple rounds of Dutch Blitz. A in particular was a worthy Dutch Blitz adversary. We had a lovely time. And they didn't even complain about our melty first attempt at ice cream.
This morning, Brent gave me my birthday present: a small oil painting purchased at the Kamloops Farmer's Market. Daisies are my favourite, and it's a lovely painting. Best of all, it was an absolute surprise. I like surprises.

I'm glad that 'A' was winning at Dutch Blitz! From now on he'll be pumped about the game, up until that night he wasn't too thrilled :)

And the ice cream was delicious - no complaints at all!
