Happy Birthday

My friend, Frank, has the most wonderful birthdays. In past years, I've gleefully accepted his invitation to celebrate his birthday at brunch and we've gone to some spectacular places. This year, however, he switched gears. He texted me and asked if he could come over with cake and coffee yesterday (his actual birthday). Well, sure!

I very much enjoy his company but Biggie just flat out LOVES him. He's quite fond of Biggie as well. But Biggie lets him hold and cuddle him and scratch his neck without stopping and then comes back for more. It's hilarious to watch.Two hours of Frank and Biggie then passes out with a giant kitty grin on his face. Yesterday Frank left about 5 and Biggie conked out until this morning.

But... the best part was that by "cake", Frank meant THE BEST CAKE IN ALL OF SEATTLE that is not easy to come by but OMG so wonderful. Deep Sea Sugar & Salt is this weird little cake shop located in an odd part of town. Their orders are often backed up for weeks. They are open limited hours. Yesterday Frank was there at 11:30 to be first when their doors opened at noon. He said there were a half dozen people ahead of him already. But, as weird as they are, they make the best cake. Inventive flavors. Delicious to the point of sinful.

Frank brought a whole cake (my favorite flavor - London Fog) and also two slices of different flavors. We had the very best birthday party. He even left me slices for later.

I really love Frank's birthday and hate now that I have to wait another year!

Biggie woke up this morning, rare in' to go. He first checked on the birds outside who were making a racket, then he checked on me. Then he played with is roll around toy. Later, rinse repeat. He's been up here on the couch several times looking for a head rub but, in no way appearing to be bite-y. Robby's doing the other half of the house now and we're just hanging out.

I did remember to call for a swim time tomorrow. 8:30 Lane 1.

Today I have no plans. Well, no big plans. I have a load of stuff for Goodwill. I plan to just drop off, not go shopping. And then go on to a new (to me) teriyaki place I've been wanting to try out. I have some house chores to do but mainly, it will be sweater work. I have 75% of the body finished and 50% of the sleeves. It's a fun knit but I'm also dying to see the finished product.

The baseball game is at 4.
