“The best mirror is an old friend.”

This morning it rained just a bit. It will rain again tomorrow. The temperature is in the 60’s. The day is a bit ugly with cloudy skies and wind. I’m staying home today. My dance card is empty until Tuesday.

The visit with my friends was almost perfect. (The almost is explained below.) We laughed and remembered, and it felt as if I had just seen them. There is never a gap in our friendship over time. They came bearing gifts as they always do. Bill had made a planter for my deck which looks like a bear. They brought the pot to fit and the flowers for the pot. Peg also brought a beautiful pottery bowl, pot holders of perfect color for my kitchen, a boxer book mark and Peeps. Bill fixed the two things which had been driving me crazy: a kitchen drawer I had to whack every time I opened it so the sides would stay connected to the front and the paper towel dispenser which kept dropping the towels on the floor. Both had been the objects of unleashed cursing.

We had an excursion which took us all the way to Race Point, the end of the cape. We stopped at the Spice House where we did a bit of shopping. It was late afternoon when we got home.

We ate like royalty. I made an apple pie, my seafood casserole and roasted carrots. That was dinner the first night. Peg brought shrimp pesto pasta, kelewele, avocados and garlic bread, our second night dinner. She also brought lemon squares and blueberry muffins. My chicken salad with cranberries and sugared walnuts was a hit. My fridge groaned under the weight of all that tasty food.

I had two awful things happen. The first was the dogs. Nala brought in a dead baby which looked like a possum. We took it away, and she attacked Henry who was innocent. They really went at it. I broke them up but got bitten for my efforts. Finally I got Nala into the bathroom and shut the door. My finger had a long bite which sort of looks like a river on a map, long and snaky. It was and is still painful but looks better and feels a bit better. I had to soak the finger in salty, soapy water so I could get the band-aids off. Henry had a lot of blood around his neck, but I checked, and it was my blood. Five minutes later I opened the bathroom door, and they were fine.

The second thing happened when I was getting out of bed. I have a topper on my mattress. I must have been a restless sleeper as the topper extended beyond the mattress so I slid off the bed to the floor. Nala cried as she too slid. All 60 pounds of her landed on my right leg, on the shin which is now super swollen and black and blue. It hurts even more than my finger. Nala was fine.

Yesterday morning we had blueberry muffins with our coffee. Bill went out to have another but the muffins were gone. Bill had left them on the counter. Nala surfed the counter and found them. Peg checked the yard and found the plastic bag which had held the muffins, all six of them. That theft hurt almost as much as much as my injuries.

I miss my friends already. I’ll visit them in the fall, or rather we’ll visit them in the fall, the dogs and I. I hope the dogs will be better behaved.

Happy Birthday, Bob Dylan!!

I am in the middle of making an apple pie. I’ve already cooked the chicken for the chicken salad. My friends come today. I have a few more tasks on my list. My usual patter will take a break today. I’ll be back on Thursday!
