Fourth

My husband and I had a busy, fun weekend, starting with a picnic in Riverside Park on Friday with dear friends, then a barbecue and 21st birthday celebration with a lovely family in Newburgh on the Fourth, then a get together with some of our neighbors to watch the World Cup soccer final, a blow out with the U.S. women trumping Japan 4-2. No suspense at all, as the first three goals were scored in the first fifteen minutes, but the company was grand. In between I worked furiously to finish the final line edit of the manuscript I'd been hired to revise, thinking all the while that I am one of the lucky ones who gets to do work I sincerely love. I now have to turn back to the book I am ghostwriting for the 97-year-old warrior woman, as the first half delivery is coming up in two weeks. I'm kind of excited to get back to it, and her. Here's a pic of the birthday boy with my girl and snap from our Friday picnic.

    1. Yolie, it was an unusually full fourth. It's usually a lot more laid back, but i liked the non-stop pace.

  7. Sounds like a terrific weekend! I love going up the Hudson Valley. I used to do a Zen retreat near Newburgh every year. (Cornwall-on-Hudson, to be specific.) It's so pretty up there.

    1. Steve, a Zen retreat sounds wonderful right about now. Where was it? Was it like Kirpalu?

  8. That top picture just makes me let out a big "awwwww". So lovely. Sounds like a wonderful weekend. I had a great time watching the World Cup with Ayla. We watch (American) football together some times, I was so happy to be able to watch female athletes with her as well.
