Gus’ birthday party was last night. It was a lot of work to get my condo ready. I wanted it to be clean and tidy. I actually did very little last-minute hiding. I was proud of myself.
I got to my place with about thirty minutes to spare. I got the food laid out, and made sure all the chairs were in place.
The party was fun. Lots of chit-chat, and a relaxing atmosphere. The two big wrinkles were that I accidentally put my old unit number on the invitation (I said 202 instead of 201), and that I didn’t have enough chairs. It worked out though, because some of us went to the lanai for a while.
Chloe brought a birthday cake and candles for Gus. He didn’t eat the cake or blow out the candles, but he was fascinated by them.
By the end of the party, Gus was exhausted. He’s like a little kid – he gets sleepy, but doesn’t want to miss anything, so he stays out with everyone. Then he gets grumpy. As soon as the last visitor left, I put him in his blanket. He slept hard.
