Good Times

It's been a wonderful week!

My daughter graduated from high school and delivered a fantastic salutatory address. Her graduation party was a success. My sister and young niece arrived safely and we had a fun day at the Philadelphia Zoo on Monday. My brother came for the graduation and brought some plants "even I can't kill" for my front yard.

I would love to post more pictures, but apparently I taught the lesson on Internet safety and anonymity too well. Although she has dozens of pictures on her face book page and her friends' face book pages, she doesn't want her picture on my blog because she "doesn't know those people." (Imagine … she is distrustful of the Online Sewing Buddies!) As a compromise, I've posted a picture of her delivering her speech. Her face is only partially visible, but the spirit of the occasion is captured.

But, even the best of times must come to an end and I have to get back to the boring, normal routine. Special occasions, like graduations, would be less special without the contrast of boring, normal routines.
