My mother, our long-time neighbor, and I went out to dinner at a Greek restaurant we've gone to whenever I've been in town over the past few years. And then we came home to play Quiddler, which we're all newly hooked on.
The first of the dandelion cordial kits were made and shared today: syrup, cans of seltzer, a lemon, and the directions for making lemonade with it all. And I got to enjoy some myself while chatting with a childhood friend before taking one of the kits up to her parents at their house.
It's been windy and/or rainy for most of my time in Loretto: not the right weather for visiting Lake St. Francis and taking water photos. But yesterday there was a space of clear weather and low wind after dinner so I took a quick walk down to the water. The light was low, but the bank of cow parsley across the water was lovely.
I finished May's proofreading for Project Gutenberg with some pages from Alfred J. Church's retelling of the Iliad for children.
...to celebrate my mother's birthday. The day started with our cooking cloud eggs as part of a fancy breakfast and moved into baking a chocolate garbanzo bean cake for dinner's dessert.
