Hello My Dear Friends,

I have spent the last two days out of state with my mother attending a memorial service for my fathers best friend, Mr B. It was a lovely visit with dear friends we have not seen in some time. There were stories told, memories shared and tears shed. There was much laughter as well which he would have enjoyed. I am so glad I was able to go and honor him.

Upon my return, I found my husband very ill with a 102 degree fever and vomiting, Miss Courtney with hives on her face and arms (that I believe are due to a new detergent), dirty dishes in the sink and laundry to fold. I am waiting for the frogs and locusts to arrive at any moment. So instead of my usual blog post waxing happy and jovial, I simply offer you chocolate.
