Parts and pieces

I was poking at the weather page, getting a glimpse of freezing conditions. Which means I’ll be locked up with cabin fever. Borger? 26 degrees. Marfa? 23 degrees. We’re a little warmer, but not by much. After a protracted summer and fall, this winter stuff is hitting hard.

As winter approaches, my sister’s special birthday package caught up.

Seeing as how I’ve already had the Pink Cake, I mean, the thought is nice, but I’ve celebrated….

Still, “birthday in a box,” that’s nice. Yellow cake isn’t pink, but then, even pink cake isn’t really pink, and I appreciate the instructions in Spanish. Local flavor.
