Pitter patter putter

The family has no social obligations today and it's so nice. Not that it's not nice to have friends and social events to attend, but all partying and no puttering makes mommy feel crazy, ya know?

Emily and I had a great time yesterday going to birthday parties. The first was for two sweet little girls whom we know from a playgroup. Their mom hired local children's musician Andy Z and he rocked. His backyard act is pretty mellow so there's not a big noise factor to consider, and the kids love his music. All the kids except Emily, who hung out with the adults until it was time for the pinata and ice cream cake. That child likes her sweets.

The second party was for another playgroup friend, a four-year old who wants to be a mermaid when she grows up. Her parents hosted her party at an indoor pool in Half Moon Bay. The kids and adults had the pool to themselves for an hour, then we congregated in a private room for dinner and cupcakes. That was a lot of fun, and hey, who doesn't like eating cake twice in one day?

Right now the sun is shining but it's not too hot, a nice mellow day to work on various projects for Burning Man. I'm taking a break from the puttering to blog and eat curry chicken over veggie fried rice that Mike made. Since he tackled breakfast (oatmeal) and lunch (the curry I'm eating), I'm in charge of dinner, which will be turkey burgers with a salad of tomato, basil, and mozzarella.

A day of socializing and a day of dilly-dallying -- now that's my idea of a balanced weekend.

Happy Sunday.
