So it got a little hot! It was still a perfect day. We could have used a bit more breeze, but all the great conversations more than made up for that. And I loved the way all my friends (from all the different pieces and eras of my life) spaced themselves out so nicely from 3 to 7 p m.
There was always just the right number of folk, lots of interesting food (thanks so especially to
Carolyn!), interesting gifts – Shirlene’s granddaughters gave me a dragon – and then put it together for me – and constant serendipities. Lots of folk who hadn’t seen each other for a while showing up at pretty much the same time.
And one new friend brought a feast of cupcakes. An entire plate of spaghetti and meatballs – all cupcakes! And tiny popcorn cupcakes, cupcake ears of corn. Food appearing as needed, one bowl emptying, to be replaced by another.
Several friends brought contributions for the Friends of Patricia fund at the CDC Association, Just one great happy-ning after another. Exactly the fabulous day I wanted to have.
Thanks, Everyone! xoxox
