Happy birthday John!

Happy, happy birthday to my bud! John’s birthday is today. He gets a nice long celebration. Last weekend was the drum corps, tonight is dinner and then Thursday is the cake party. We do like to extend the birthdays around here. I’ll get to his birthday dinner in a bit.

Work has been on a bit a lull. I am currently getting ready to be trained on a new account, but it always takes forever to get the software installed and then get trained on it, and they don’t know who is doing the training yet, so I wait and have less work to do on the other accounts. 🙄   However, that gives me time to work on my projects! I completed another chair.  One of my $2 chairs – this one for inside.  The chair is in fantastic condition – it just needed a new seat cover, which was easy peasy.



Haha – the trunk is still being worked on!  It has kitty litter inside to absorb odor.  Note the lid is *closed* so I don’t have a worse mess to clean up 😉

I had some extra purple suede from doing my arm chairs, so I decided to do this chair in the same style with the same cream paint.


I am currently obsessed with the purple and cream.  This was a much easier upholstering than the other 2 chairs. It only took me a couple hours to finish this chair. Next is finishing the other chair (same color combo) and my trunk.

Of course, as soon as I brought this upstairs, Pixie staked a claim. I had just brought this from the work area and set it down to show John and this happens:



Now on to dinner! John chose Siam Thai Sushi for his birthday meal.  We can walk there from our house – it’s about a mile away.  Cheers to John!



Yay for a good picture! I have the hardest time getting a good picture of John. Either his eyes are closed or he is trying too hard to smile 😀  John is drinking a thai iced tea.  I had a thai iced coffee:


John’s dinner choice was the Cashew Nut with Tofu, which has cashews, bell peppers, carrots and chili sauce:



I decided to try something different. I usually get curry, but wanted to try the sushi.  I don’t eat raw fish, but I will eat cooked sushi.  This is called the Spunge Bob.  It has tempura shrimp, cream cheese, and cucumber topped with mango and a honey sauce.



Holy moly was this yummy!  I would get it again for sure.  We are never disappointed with our meals here.

More celebrating for John later this week 😀

    Pixie could have the best litter box. Come on Lori, cut a cat size hole at the bottom of that trunk.

    Way to celebrate – we like to extend birthdays too!

    Are the finished chairs all over the house or are you collecting random chairs for your dining room?

      Well, 2 of them are in the garden. The 2 armchairs that I have had for a long time are going to end up in the living room for seating. I am trying to find 3 other chairs like the one above for the dining room. When we have more than 4 people at the dining table, we have to use folding chairs and I would like something a bit nicer than that, so the search is on for others.

    SUPER picture of the birthday boy!!! A happy birthday to him too!

    The meal looks tasty and I admire how you were able to get more into fish. I am still wishing I could overcome my aversion because there would be so many more dining options!

    Happy Birthday to John.
    Have you guys tried Thai Sushi Aroy Dee? Much closer to your house and I find the food much better than Siam Thai Sushi.
