Friends, forgive a slight delay responding to your gracious comments and reading your newest posts. I will be romping in the oak trees at the lake cottage for a few days with friends, very nice friends who are driving hours and hours to be together. It happens to be my birthday weekend (which you might guess from my URL), and I am taking stock of the many mercies around me like acorns.

Another Leo!
And born on the feast day of St. Hippolyte.
My day is just a week less than yours, on the feast of San Rocco.

August is the greatest month! as Chaucer said.

Peter said...

After a long absence, I'm back and could at last see your writings and pictures from the wedding! The party looks as nice as I had expected!!

So, now, it's your time to be absent, but only for a short while! ... and Happy Birthday! :-)

Well, I am lazier than the squirrel.

Happy, happy belated birthday! A weekend at a lake cottage, hours and hours away, with great friends? Sounds ideal! I love how you celebrate life!

Dutchbaby, thank you for the birthday greeting. I have now succeeded in spreading the celebration into September, and I love that. :)
