To complete my blogging for the day - LUCY!

A few of my favorite pictures of my niece Lucy - over the past few months. In reverse chronological order...

Party at Tiffany's!

Tiffany's birthday was only three days before Isaac's, and she was truly generous to slave away cooking for a lot of invited guests on Sunday night. It was a major feast, and I heard from a reliable source that all the recipes came from a single cookbook. I forgot to ask which one, but whichever - everything was delicious. I knew I should have fasted better throughout the day, because the only problem was that I was full way too soon.

Then we got a little music - some Schubert piano for 4 hands and other musical delights...no better way to spend a Sunday night than staying up way too late with good company.

Here are some pictures from the night!

Happy Birthday Isaac!

It's Isaac's birthday again! And he is so very lucky that something he has been obsessing about for many many months, well it finally happened today. He called me this morning to make me guess what the good news was:

Christine: You got a job offer?
Isaac: No...
C: You got another interview?
I: No...
C: Someone else got a job?
I: What? NO. Something less serious, think entertainment...
C: Oh, JK Rowling finally announced the title for Harry Potter Book 7.

And JK did! Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows.

Considerable birthday time was then spent by Isaac, looking up all definitions of "hallow" in the OED. We will have to discuss further over dinner. Which will be at Rosa Mexicano - yum!

Feeling so pathetic I had to blog

just briefly.

Because I just heard that Rachel McAdams and Ryan Gosling are engaged and suddenly I had much fonder memories of that movie The Notebook. Swoon.
