i don’t know what to say about what’s happened in connecticut. no one does. and i sure don’t know what to say about the idea that there have been so many horrific instances like this one in the past week, and the past year.
what i know i can do is hug the people i love and say a thank you that we all still get to be together — which i did over and over while falling asleep saturday night.
we can’t forget about what’s going on, but i think all we can do is enjoy what we can while we get to have it.

saturday morning, i hosted brunch at the apartment. it was the first time i really had people over. i wasn’t too nervous, and i planned, but i’d never done it before. it was a hit, i think.
i mopped for the first time [ever] friday night at midnight. in theory, i totally understand how to mop. in actuality, i soaked through my socks and danced myself in circles. but there were freshly baked scones just before.
mama helped with the finishing touches saturday, and vacuumed while i washed another round of dishes. it was nice to feel so good about my first job playing hostess and still have backup in case there was a meltdown.
and the apartment has never looked so good.
all the dishes were simple, but i think there was a good selection. i sat everything out. and went a little suzie homemaker and did up food labels with washi tape. i had a blast.
a good time was had by all. [ ;-) ]
