Well, I sniffled and hacked on over to the Avdi’s for Shabbat, and was glad to be back.
My Gdaughter J. lost her grandfather today, so it was a sad day for her. I hope by the end of my visit I helped at least distract her a little. She and C., with a little chopping help from me, made one of their amazing Shabbat dinners again. It’s magic alchemy, what they do in the kitchen. I believe Anthony Bourdain would be impressed.
I also got a little more work done on cleaning up the veg garden, and of course enjoyed all the native flowers still going strong. The bees were having a frenzy. If the photos seem a little fuzzy, it’s probably my fog brain, not their fault.
Jess was back from her European trip, so I got to see her again. She and Avdi gave me this delightful corvid incense burner which I initiated tonight.
Here is my beautiful son on his way out for the evening. (I helped him lace up the back of his stunning new Victorian tailcoat.)
