It's Cinco de Mayo and that means it's my dear friend Halle's birthday. And I'm celebrating both today. Of course, my cup runneth over with candle goodness that I'm not lighting until later in the year. Why, you ask? It was 102 F here yesterday (about 39 C for my metric friends) and the thought of adding more heat in the house is not going to happen for awhile.
Some of you may remember that my dear friend Sally gave me a card for my birthday where she scratched out the word cake and wrote the word pie.
The irony of this is, I wouldn't have gotten this pie had it not been for Sally. She is in the hospital and I have been visiting every day. I bought this pie to bring home from the hospital cafeteria today so I could celebrate with Halle. And celebrate I will, candle and all.
I'm also celebrating Cinco de Mayo with this page I've made for my 7 Continents altered book (AB), which I call possibly the longest running unfinished AB project on record.
The flag of Mexico hides a message.
Some of you will note that I didn't spell Halle correctly, but it goes better as Halli-Day, and it phonetically tells you how to pronounce her name.
Here is a final closeup of my homage to Cinco de Mayo.
What will you share (or drink) today? Will it be to honor Cinco de Mayo, or simply to show some art or something else drink related. Remember, photos don't have to be taken on Tuesday, and you can share anything as long as you can relate it back to something drink related, as I did today with my new tea cup candle. Please link below, and wish Halle a happy Cinco de Mayo. After all, the 5th of May is her birthday.
