We celebrated Josh’s birthday yesterday with:
Crumbl cookies in lieu of a cake (my first time trying them — quite decadent and delicious. Esp the York Peppermint Patty flavor!)
A gift of male-targeted skincare. I will report back with more details if he likes it.
Microbrew of the month x 3 months because that gift literally never fails to delight in his case.
I forgot to take any pictures!
Three other random things:
1- I finished Man’s Search for Meaning. What a fascinating and important book. (On that note, as it is December 9 and I am at 46 books for the year, I kind of really want to finish 4 in the next 3 weeks to make it an even 50. I think this is doable. When I looked back to what I read in January, it seemed like eons ago. What a weird year.)
2- I though the Forever35 interview of Eve Rodsky yesterday was excellent! (Spoiler alert: she may be in our guest pipeline as well.)
3- Ooh, and look! Duolingo sent me an update. I did a lot of Spanish this year. Am I fluent? Absolutely not. Do I understand a tiny bit more than before and feel confident saying short conversational phrases? Yes. For this phase of my life, I’m happy with that. But I recognize I would need other avenues of learning (ie, human or screen tutor/conversation partner) to actually become an even minimally functional speaker.
