Two friends celebrated birthdays recently and helped me check off two birthday list items:
1. Make a terrarium
Have you heard of Plant Nite? How about Paint Nite? It’s the same idea…have a few drinks and some food and make something to take home with you.
I like plants and gardening, although I only have two plants (that survive even though I forget to water them) and I don’t know anything about gardening. So I was looking forward to making a terrarium.
It was really easy: Put a layer of rocks in the bottom of a planter, then a bunch of soil. Insert a few cute succulents.
And then decorate with colored moss, plastic dinosaurs, and colored rocks. Voila!
This particular planter requires bright sunlight, which my apartment never sees. So we’ll see how long this darling terrarium survives…
2. Ride on a party bus
Another friend booked a party bus for her birthday. It was an old school bus re-purposed for people to drink, eat, dance, and sing while being driven around for hours.
There were about 20 of us, so we had room to mingle and dance.
We made a pit stop at a brewery, where only half of us were allowed to enter due to maximum capacity. So our group found a small Chinese restaurant nearby and ordered some drinks, providing cheap entertainment to the “regulars” eating their Saturday dinners.
After three hours of riding around the city and singing along to a plethora of ’80s and ’90s hits, we were dropped off at the North End and had a fabulous dinner.
Thanks, Linda and Abby, for helping me with my list. 😉
