1. Steve's 50th birthday! He requests a Boston Cream Pie, no candles.
2. Smash Mouth was my music-to-run-errands-by today. I had a good time driving along to the upbeat tempo.
3. I buy a new Purple Leaf Plum tree for our garden. They have striking purple-red leaves year round. I buy it today because we'll easily remember that it was planted on Steve's birthday as we count the years it grows.
