The day went well
I am so happy to say that my birthday went well. Most of my cousins from Joy’s side of the family came to dinner in celebration of the start of my 63rd year. I was so pleased that those involved in the melt-down and our subsequent displacement also came, as invited. That made me feel really good.
Prior to the dinner party, Joy and I took the day to ourselves. I love bookstores, so we went to one of the few used-book stores in town and I found some books about Paul Klee and Paul Cézanne, that I hadn’t read!
We spent the rest of the day puttering about the mall until just before the dinner.
The tick, tick, ticking of time slipping by was muffled somewhat by being surrounded by good company. However, I’m sure I have not experienced the last of those feelings. It is nice to have a respite now and then.
I thank my friends, Mac McConnell, Jan Hilley, Alison Hansel, Liz Barrett, Kathy DeAngelo, Lynn Williamson Webster, Jessica Safran for the happy birthday wishes. They mean a lot to me.
No watercolor today, unfortunately, BUT
Here are some photos of interesting fire plugs that are in the queue for painting:
