Yesterday, April 30th, was Giuseppe’s birthday. I know. Can you believe it? We practically share a birthday. At first it was romantic; now we just kind of steal each other’s birthday thunder.
Just kidding. It’s pretty fun because we usually have a big party together.
Not this year, though. It was another pretty regular day: Giuseppe went to the vet hospital while Paolo and I had an uneventful day, too. Since we’ve just arrived to Ames, we don’t yet have any friends in town, which means no big parties. Which is just fine; there is always next year!
So, instead, Paolo and I showed up at the vet hospital during lunch with some chocolate treats for Giuseppe to share. I made chocolate cupcakes with chocolate butter cream frosting. I found this yummy recipe for butter cream frosting here last week. G was very happy: the treats were a hit.
When he returned home from the hospital, we had a romantic dinner at home. All in all it was a very good day.
