Birthday Greetings, Bottle of Wine

For Jim's birthday this past weekend, the Cambridge clan (well, Somerville [Jaime] and New Jersey [Dave] were also represented) headed out to All-Star Sandwich for a lunchtime nosh. Ciel, past the worst of the morning sickness, declared her sandwich the "best ever." And Jim relished his "dead animal" (corned beef). I relished my dead portabella mushroom sandwich (wait, that doesn't sound so good!)

On the walk home up Cambridge St, some signs of spring were emerging. But, that wasn't enough for me!

Although it isn't the first place that comes to mind when you think of re-awakening (at least outside of a horror movie!), Mount Auburn cemetery with its beautiful plantings was the place to be for a little vernal voyeuring. It was just the thing to prepare me for the annual Lilac Sunday walk around Arnold Arboretum!
For dessert, Jim actually even ate a slice of birthday cake (Chocolate Creme de Menthe Cake, product of a minor baking frenzy.) Proof that I still need him and feed him when he's ....
