Spectrum Journey

John August: A journey through autism

Birthday time

Planning a birthday party for John is tricky, especially the cake part. He’s not a fan of cake, ice cream is iffy, and pie is right out. But he does like cookies. Last year we tried a chocolate chip cookie cake but it didn’t go over well. This year we decided to try a tray of cookies with four different varieties. I still wanted to make sure he had the birthday candle experience, so I set up candles on top of the tray of cookies. It took a few tries to blow out that many candles, but he did it!

The #crochet #moodblanket after one year. I work on it when the mood strikes, and I don't usually crochet in summer. I got about six rows done at Boy Scout camp this year. #crochersofinstagram Prompt 4 - inspired by lyrics
