So then there was lunch at Udipi – south Indian food, buffet style, with my middle younger sister. And on the way over, I was listening to Terri Gross on NPR, talking with the author of a new book called Brothers: The Hidden History of the Kennedy Years. I called Joseph-Beth, found out they had it, and would hold it for me til later in the afternoon. (While there, I bought myself the new Barbara Kingsolver as well.)
Lunch was just great, and Maureen gave me a fabulous green glass necklace – and a wistful leprechaun fairy – after fairies had visited during my massage earlier.
In the meantime, I stopped at home to hang out with the wonderful friend who cleans for me, Jennifer Ortega. And stopped at Nickers to buy myself another present.
Now it’s off to dinner with Brian and Patrick, and then to Sherlock Holmes – The Final Adventure at the Playhouse with Kathleen O’Neill.
Every birthday of all my 67 has had a different rhythm – this one is especially wonderful!
