Happy Easter

(Community Matters)

Domestic Weekend

(Community Matters) Long time since we’ve enjoyed such a domestic day as yesterday – cleaning out the attic, moving winter coats to storage, cleaning out the pool house, cooking lunch, reading, writing, napping – Steven and Ron Berry making a new YouTube video for FuseBox. Then dinner at our favorite hole in the wall with one of our best friends, Kip Keller; dessert, wine & cigars in the pool house. Today, church, a couple of Easter brunches, a new friend moves in with us for a few weeks, hopefully evening champagne & nibbles with John Phillip & Francis. Easter is a good weekend. Much love to family, friends & neighbors.
