Well, my birthday is next Tuesday, August 9. It is customary in Ukraine for the birthday person to plan and host their own party, so I am thinking of having a cookout for some of my friends.
Right now, I am thinking of having the party at one of the Dniper River plentiful beaches, cooking burgers on the grill and having an “old-fashioned” American cookout with all the trimmings.
So, I am making my list of invitees, and another list of what I want to prepare, cook, etc. I don’t think that I will make a cake since I don’t have a cake mix and I don’t want to make a cake from scratch, so I will probably make brownies, or buy a cake here.
Anyway, here’s to birthdays! Another reason to have fellowship with friends (and family) whom you love.
