A decadent weekend
April 18, 2011 Comments Off on A decadent weekend
Our housewarming was just that: house warming. Friends brought seeds, herbs, and flowers to plant in our backyard. One of our friends brought a bucket of earthworms, which we promptly transferred into a hole in the ground. I’m going to give myself a couple of days before I figure out how to begin this gardening business. Joseph wants to get an intro to gardening book, and after Nukah devoured our hydrangeas, I’m thinking it might not be a bad idea to get an intro to gardening with dogs book.
We sat in the backyard decadently eating and drinking in the sunshine. Everyone loved Joe’s baked French toast, a family recipe. One person asked if Joe cooked for a living. Of course he could!
My only regret is that we didn’t take any pictures at the party. (A friend took the above picture of half of Joe, Nukah, and me, but that’s about it.) I wanted to enjoy the moment and not worry so much about documentation, which is a new experiment for me.
I love all the celebrating lately. Tonight we will go to Joe’s first seder hosted by my New York Bubbie– although she prefers to not be called Bubbie because it sounds “too old”– and the celebrating will continue.
