well, around here, I’m not sure how good it is. We have another gray and rainy day to bring the spirits down.
Ariana’s family birthday celebration was a big success. My son, Roger, came over with my daughter and he cooked an amazing dinner of salmon, carrots, fennel, and mashed potatoes. Amanda baked the birthday cake, a wonderful strawberry cake.
Lily, one of Ariana’s best friends came over to celebrate with us. Amelia also came home from VCU (Virginia Commonwealth University) to grace us with her presence. The whole family was together. Cousin Simon was with us in spirit, although he did call Ariana to wish her a happy birthday.
Needless to say, I got no writing done yesterday. Hopefully I’ll get much more done today.
