Cinco de mayo began early for me. I was picked up at 7:15 and after a Starbucks stop, we drove and drove to a nursery to collect plants for Mother's day. We waded around in the mud retrieving hanging baskets far over our heads with a long hooked pole. We collected sedum gardens, pots of gardenias and lavender. Loaded up the two vans and were off to a day of ringing phones, lines of customers and flower arrangements.
Cinco de Mayo ended late, for we cooked a dinner to celebrate our roomate , He Man's ,birthday. We grilled ribs and chicken wings, made DanDan noodles, a big bowl of salad. At some point a paddy wagon appeared to attempt to collect the runaway pit bull Baby. Baby evaded his captors running up and down the street with two county Animal Control people and about 6 small children in hot pursuit.
We ate under the stars and finished with chocolate cake and raspberries and a dog walk. Baby was nowhere in sight.
