I said I’d let you know how yesterday went…

Um…not well.

But today is a new day and I’ve got a day off.  And I’m going to take a break from Madeline 2. 

I had chocolate for breakfast to start the day right.  Then I put on a load of laundry, went to the market and bought a bunch of fresh fruit, plums, apples, oranges, bananas.  I bought some buttermilk too.  Was planning to tuck in on this rainy day and make some delicious homemade banana bread and then smear it with slabs of butter when it came out of the oven, piping hot. 

But then Jane Spidell (Madeline 1 and a brilliant-multi-Dora-award-toting-actress to book ) invited me over for dinner, bless her generous heart.  I’m telling you, if you have a sad day, there is no shoulder more solid, more caring, to have a good weep on, than Jane’s. 

But today?  No more weeping for me!  I’ve got a fridge full of food, tasty chocolate in my drawer and the promise of a wonderful cozy evening. 

Life is good.
