I am having a lovely time in Philadelphia, spending quality time with old friends. I've also spent quality time with gin and tonics, spicy sausage, and baked beans. My former neighbors hosted a cookout last night in the courtyard I used to share with them. It was a lovely and joyous occasion, filled with laughter, intrigue, and a whole lotta food and drink.
Melissa brought me the most amazing birthday gift. When we were in Spool last week, I happened to ooh and ah over the window display. She's making me this bird mobile. She had about six birds done and I cannot wait to hang the finished mobile in my home. I'm trying to determine the best place to showcase this lovely work of art.
