I have a bad picture of the roses my aunt sent me. They’re lovely, though she was surprised to see them. She had asked for a spring bouquet of tulips and hydrangeas. I just changed my table setting and used my Provencal table runner instead of the more obvious pastel and bunny stuff.
We had brass in church, and then had a very nice lunch. My parents and aunt and uncle came, and #2 son was there to represent the younger generation.
The food was good, the conversation was good. My aunt gave me lots of sound business advice. My uncle said, when they left, “Coming here always makes us feel that the world is a better place than we thought it was.” That was such a nice thing to say.
Then I took the rest of the afternoon off.
Back to work. I’ve added another blogging gig, and may have a major social media campaign to implement — I wrote them a plan, and they probably won’t want to do it themselves. The Kennedy Center is winding up their lessons, but has asked if I’d like to write articles for them. I’m seriously behind on work, but still happy when new things come up. Not sure if that’s the right attitude.
