The Luring Scenes Of Vice

I had a lovely birthday yesterday. I baked oatmeal bread, made lemonade, went to the library, and talked to Mom Pony and Little Sister Pony. In the evening, there was much general merriment and birthday songs at shape-note, as well as a delicious cake.

This evening, my best friend is coming to visit from New York for the weekend, as is our custom for our birthdays. Our plans include Ravinia, Chinatown, the Velvet Lounge, and the glass observation boxes on the 103rd floor of the former Sears Tower (which Mom Pony thinks should be nicknamed the Big Willie, since its official new name is . . . ugh . . . the Willis Tower).

Happy belated birthday! Health, happiness, and good luck to you. And most of all, lots of fun and success for La Dissertation.

I'm glad you had such a nice day! Cake and songs and merriment = perfect. :D

Thank you! It was a lovely day.

Today has been kind of busy, since I'm in the midst of Getting Ready. So far I've made a no-bake blueberry pie, gotten two loaves of anadama bread to their second rise, and done some crucial e-mailing about the Ravinia trip. I have a shopping run and a library run to do, and at noon I'm scheduled for a long Skype session with the colleague whose dissertation chapter I've been editing. Fun day!

And enjoy the weekend! But of course you will :-)

I'm really looking forward to it. I made a no-bake blueberry pie for tonight, and I'm going to start on the tomato soup and the pear-watercress salad soon.

I love baking bread. It makes my apartment smell lovely, and then I have homemade bread to eat. I found that if I bake furiously for about a day and a half, I have enough bread at the end to stuff my freezer and last for the whole quarter. I have not bought a loaf of bread in about a year, and I am quite happy about that.

Oh, Pony! I've been kind of out of things, and I missed your birthday. It sounds like it was a good, if busy, day. Belated felicitations!
