I’m enjoying a new guide project. ("Enjoying" is a stretch, but the word adequately conveys that I’m happy to have the work.) My textbook is chugging along, mostly on schedule.

I’m pleased with how our weekend went, with Asher’s birthday party and all. It was just the right ratio of work to fun. We had family over for brunch from 10:30 to 1:30. The food was easy, thanks to Costco, and very yummy. We let folks assemble their own croissant sandwiches. We also served two types of quiche, dolmas, fruit salad, and banana nut bread. This allowed me to focus on making a splendid cake from scratch. It turned out great! Good ol’ Betty Crocker. We are fortunate in that all of the grandparents (three sets) get along so well. I think everybody had a good time. Asher got some more stuff, but not a ton more, so I’m glad it was kept to a reasonable amount of gifts: several books, several outfits, pjs, a couple of toys, a handmade hat, bath mitt puppets, etc. After everyone left, Asher napped, and we had the rest of the day to chill. Later on, we went on a bike ride to the newly completed nearby Patriot Park on Palm Avenue. (This is the field that sported a sign saying "Future Park" for about 20 years.)

On Sunday we went to an all-ages service at UUSS in which a Frog and Toad story was enacted, Lucas LEARNED TO READ, and we took a trip down to Capitol Aquarium to buy some more fish and accessories for our refurbished fish tank. (We have since lost two fish. Boo! "It’s the CIIIIIIR – CLE of LIIIIIIIFE.") I knitted a bit and we ate leftover croissant sandwiches. Yum. We bought some new books to read, too. So, that made for a basically perfect day.
