With the fire smoke clearing out of the Bay Area, it’s nice to see familiar skies again.
We had a “quiet” birthday celebration for Elliot this year. A mint/chocolate cake with strawberry frosting topped by Sunny from Wings of Fire, Great Uncle Ray continued the tradition of $1 for every year and an epic game of Ballon Ball in the living room. You know, normal stuff.
Tonight, Dylan’s Scout troop held the bridging ceremony the Cub Scouts would normally have done last spring if not for a global pandemic. As it was, he bridged and earned his Scout rank at the same time.
We spent a week sheltering in place at a house in Sonoma surrounded by vineyards. Not bad.
