Randomday: The Dr. Who Anniversary edition

Steve celebrated his birthday yesterday; a milestone birthday, and yes, he was born that same day that you've been seeing all the Kennedy retrospectives about.  So, as you might imagine, we focus on other things for his birthday.  It was a pretty low-key day.  He requested a blueberry cake (I adapted the recipe for strawberry cake with lemon jello instead of strawberry and gently simmered blueberries instead of chopped strawberries).  And spinach-noodle bake.

And we've been watching lots of Dr. Who episodes today, interspersed with raking the final leaves.  There is a mountain of leaves over the compost pile.  For a few months we've been watching the Dr. Who episodes sequentially with Quarta and sometimes Tertia (who covers her face with the pillow mostly and peeks around it during the creepy parts... and it's all creepy parts sometimes).  We're somewhere mid-Tennant, and it's making so much more sense than the random episodes I'd seen before.  I mean, we just watched "Blink" for the first time.  Today we broke out of the sequence and Steve showed Quarta (and Tertia, part-time) some of the Matt Smith episodes leading up to the big "Day of the Doctor" episode.  Oh, and I made a Thai pumpkin coconut soup with leftover Costco chicken and it was yummy.

Daniel is on Thanksgiving break but isn't coming home -- instead he is visiting my brother and sister and her family in Virginia for the week.  Secundus has been out and about all day; running with a buddy in the morning, working most of the day and meeting up with friends to watch the Hunger Games movie this evening.
