It’s gotten very late, so tonight I’m writing a quick rundown of the day with photos of our anniversary dinner preparation.
After irrigating first thing this morning, cleaning house, installing firmware updates on my cameras, and herding cats, I gave myself a kitty bath (licked my arms, put on deodorant and changed into some reasonably clean clothes), then Laurie and I ventured out to the nursery and bought a hibiscus and a color bowl for anniversary presents.
Dinner included the Vietnamese beef dish, stir-fried vegetables with black sesame seeds, brown rice and sparkling wine. Family came over for dessert. We all sat out on the deck and had a wonderful evening.
