I was really excited to spend my birthday in Prespatou. I had been planning it for days!
On Mainstreet there is a store with a tiny diner that serves traditional Mennonite food! I was really looking forward to trying it! Afterwards we would then visit my Paternal Grandparents graves.
I love going to Prespatou.
My maternal grand father used to own the store before he died. He used to own a lot of land but he sold most of it and moved with my grandmother to Warman, Saskatchewan.
My plans however fell through because it was raining. The roads were horrible.
I resigned myself to spending my birthday alone and lowkey. However, My cousin, who I haven’t heard from in awhile messaged me to wish me a happy birthday. I was so surprised and happy to hear from her! It definitely made my morning.
In the afternoon I spent sometime with my niece and sister. My sister’s cat had kittens and I was debating whether or not to adopt one of them. I love cats!
My parents completely forgot my birthday. My mother called me up and apologized for forgetting. I told her it was alright. She asked what I would like for my birthday dinner tomorrow. Every year I have had the same dinner. Either spaghetti or roasted chicken with apricot jam glaze. When I asked if I could have spaghetti my mother made a sound. I sighed. Then asked if I could have chicken. Didn’t matter what kind of chicken. She then asked what I wanted for my birthday.
I asked for a cake. When I am asked what kind, I thought about it. I really wanted a decadent cake. I knew she would have a fit because its “sugary” so I asked for an Angel Food Cake or a store bought one. Again she made a sound. Then she said how about she makes me the Angel food cake. “I know exactly what to get you for your birthday. Do you remember what you wanted?” she crowed. I frowned. No, I didn’t. It will be a surprise I guess.
It appeared that I would have to make my own birthday dinner as well. I guess I wasnt being spoiled this year! I had a sad looking cupboard. Hardly anything in it.
I decided to try a new recipe from Ricardo. Sour cream noodles.
It wasnt bad.
I am getting closer to being a reclusive cat lady! I just need the cats!
