Pinch and a punch for the last day of the month and summer! The end of the warm and hot months… And the beginning of less sunshine maybe?? More low moods? Vitamin D deficiency? A whole spate of things that comes when winter comes along.
How are we going to fight it this year when we were lucky enough to avoid it last year? We’ve basically had 8 months of summer so we can’t really complain. Lucky Vitamin D is a fat-soluble vitamin so we should have plenty of storage from just our Camino walk alone 😉
Tomorrow is our nephew’s birthday. We had a lovely family dinner tonight and tomorrow he has his birthday party with friends. Our birthday gift to him now is a “gift certificate” but not just any one… ONE to spend the day with us. He can choose what he wants to do, eat and buy for the day to a certain dollar value. It is much better than buying a bunch of things for him that he might not use, need or want. This at least is more about quality time together.
Summary of February 28
We drove a different route to Le’s parents’ place for dinner.
We came up with the birthday present idea last year and it worked well…He really enjoyed spending the day, watching a movie, playing some arcade games, buying a book and board game. It also takes the materialism and commercialism out a little of birthdays. Brings back to basics about what “present” really means.
