Yesterday was quite a nice day, I must say.
I got up at a reasonable hour, then hung out until it was time for the luncheon. Actually, I should be more exact. I hung out and did laundry until Liz came to the door and I realized that I had completely lost track of time and had neither prepared myself nor the dessert I was to take. Luckily the luncheon was in our building’s (very convenietnly located) social room, and I am married to an incredibly sweet man who offered to run to the store and grab something. I asked him to pick up a chocolate cake, a can of whipped cream, and some strawberries. I figured that you can’t go wrong with those three things.
I ended up simply putting a piece of cake on each plate, putting a dollop (spray) of whipped cream on the plate, and sticking two strawberries in each one. Simple. (I should have taken lots of pictures, but didn’t. I’m sorry.) Liz made a delicious black bean salsa, Stacey made a delicious spinach salad, Heather brought a veggie tray from Costco (you know, the good one with the dill dip and peppercorn ranch) and Kim brought a tray of delicious sandwiches.
Afterward, I walked to the post office to mail a few eBay sales and then to Sam Weller’s. Speaking of, Sam Weller’s is planning on moving, so all of the used books are 25% off right now. As I walked back I took a few flower pictures, and I thought that I ought to post one.
I was excited to see something I hadn’t expected at all, lilacs starting to bloom. I love lilacs more than almost anything on Earth.
