And some mornings you wake up to find that a friend has pitched in. Today, Mater of Materfamilias Writes has a Saturday morning post up. A lovely piece of writing about our day in the city, with that customary Mater tone humming throughout. I suppose it’s the sound of grace. I will refrain from the impulse to sputter,”Oh no, you are too nice, oh I am not….,” remembering that my mother always says, “A simple thank you will suffice.”
So you will find, here, root vegetables, carnitas, the Golden Gate bridge from a secret vantage point, and Mater and me in front of said bridge, smiling. Thank you.
And I, given now an extra block of time this morning, will finally put all boxes of Christmas decorations into the garage. I will start filing the stacks of papers that hunker in my office like junkyard dogs, growling every time I come near. Then, come midday, I’m off to wedding dress shopping for my future sister-in-law. Really, what else could one want from a Saturday?
I hope you all have a wonderful weekend. I really do.
