Happy Birthday, Beez

I know, I know, still not back to almost-daily blogging. There’s definitely something about plunging back into daily life, not able to rhapsodize about buildings and bridges and museums … Back to the joy of the mundane, and to top it off, it’s cold. Suddenly spring ended and October began, freezing winds and all. It happens every year – the minute we get all our woolens put away, Mother Nature pulls the green spring rug out from under our feet and hits us with cold again. Hibernation time, till it’s warm again.

Monday night, nothing mundane about my daughter Anna’s birthday party. She is the queen of merriment, and there was much making merry at her place, where her brother, king of the barbeque, grilled stacks of hamburgers, to go with all the salads she’d prepared. They are both very funny; I did not stop laughing the entire time. Here they are, with those million dollar smiles.
Otherwise, stumbling slowly along.
