Drive-By Posting

The end of the year is always super busy. It’s the last week of school for Robin and Davy and it feels like there’s a million things I’m supposed to do. “Update my blog” is on the list somewhere, so I’m just going to throw a few things up.

Here’s Sol having fun at the park:


Here is the menu for my fortieth birthday dinner, which was last night:

  • lamb steaks broiled with garlic butter
  • pan-roasted asparagus with shaved parmesan
  • cornmeal-buttermilk sheet cake with blackberries, blueberries, and strawberries

Here is how I feel about being forty: Good, but I’m more than ready for life to slow down a little. I’m really looking forward to sixty.

Here is how I feel about the arrival of summer: super good. I wish you all long days, warm weather, and relaxed schedules. And maybe beaches or mountains or European cities or cabins in the woods—whatever you’re into, really. And a lot of it.

    Mark’s niece, Joan, and her mom, Sharron, were visiting last week and I told them you had asked if having a daughter about to turn 40 makes me feel old. Sharron said, and I agree, that 40 is a wonderful age, in the prime of life for women. So I salute and celebrate you, my marvelous daughter. Many happy returns!
