Out of the Blue

It seems like it was only a year ago that I had my last birthday, but I'll be damned if another on hasn't rolled around. The pandemic lockdown might make such an occasion weird for many people, but I tend to downplay my birthday, so I'm not really feeling deprived at not going out to dinner or anything like that. MrsBlue and I went shopping today for our little two-person Thanksgiving, so I picked up a steak to cook in Manstovia along the way. I'm always happy for an excuse to grill, eat steak, and laze around, so this should all work out pretty well for me.
