Our dear friend Laura Mayer came for a visit suddenly I was an actor in a musical. It started the day she arrived. I started singing. I sang and I danced about everything, lyrics flowing like I was on a stage. It was just that kind of week.
We had good times painting in the studio and we canned tomatillo salsa (while I sang, of course.) It turned out really, deliciously well.
I can't say the same for the mint jelly I made tonight. It's actually mint candy, not mint jelly at all. How convenient to have mint candy sealed in little half pint jars. It actually won't come out of the jars. Won't my dad be surprised when he opens up his present to eat with lamb at his birthday dinner tomorrow. I think I'll send a jar to Laura for a special treat.
