A Sunny Day, or so it Starts

Tuesday, February 24th, 2004

Mom and I got up early today to go to Ladies’ Breakfast. They have toast and coffee/tea, and share news, tell jokes, make plans for events such as an international potluck. I have gone to several of these over the last 6 years or so, and some faces are starting to be familiar to me. It was pleasant, although I did not love having an alarm clock on vacation. I did get almost 8 hours of sleep, but my brother is still sleeping in as I type this at 10am. He has been so sleep-deprived, I’m leaving him alone until he is good and ready to wake up.

Mom made me some soda bread, and cranberry sauce for jam. The combination is so fabulous! Sometimes I’m glad I can not eat “regular” food, because the foods I eat instead are so excellent. I have not made this soda bread before, but mom makes it for occasions when I visit, and I really enjoy it immensely.

Today, Eric and I are planning to go to a garden about an hour from here. They have a carillon which plays a concert at 3pm every day. We will be surrounded with music and nature, and we will get a bit of walking in. I am looking forward to it.

Tonight Mom is planning for us to go to a new “Chinese” restaurant that has a Mongolian Barbecue. You pick your own ingredients and they stir-fry it for you. I guess it is run by a Vietnamese man who used to live in Pennsylvania, in a city where Mom and Fred go a lot since Fred’s son lives there. Small world.
