Happy Birthday Michael!

Tomorrow is Michael’s birthday. We finally got on the same page that I want to celebrate it even if he doesn’t care. Tomorrow is also the 9 month anniversary of the journey and the point at which we only have a “normal” two week vacation left. It feels like everything we do is extra special now and needs to get the maximum recognition and enjoyment which includes the mundane stuff but especially whooping it up for The Birthday Boy!
Last night we went to a warm spring called “the Tub.” The water was coolish and getting out in the moonlight with the chilled high valley breeze was the most exciting part of the experience. Today we walked a mile down to Little Hot Creek where the water and surroundings are just perfect…it was the Best, even with the fairly stiff walk back up the rutted road with dust devils jumping up on us.
Lastly, we drove up to Mammoth Ski Resort. We were going to ski the road above it but the wind is just gone wild today. It was too biting and fierce to be enjoyable so now we are almost in Birthday Mode. I got Michael a gift certificate so he could get a helmet since he skis alone in trees a lot. I’ve got bakery goodies, Champaign, the name of an affordable restaurant and we’ll go see “Leatherheads” at the cinema. Now, all I need are the candles.
Michael is out getting veggie oil at a Mammoth Lakes Sushi restaurant while I enjoy the joy of thinking about what a wonderful conjunction we have at this time.
