Checking In

Reading my f-list, it looks like I have it pretty good. I'm currently enjoying the AC in the Pony Parents' home, having just returned from a trip to New York, where I partied down as my best friend in the whole wide world married a really lovely lady -- they're both musicians with quirky senses of humor, and both the rabbi and his mother were absolutely right about what a matched pair they make. And I got to stay with some singing friends and their adorable smily seven-month-old in the process. Now I'm helping Mom Pony turn long pants into shorts and looking forward to Fourth of July with Little Sister Pony. Life is good here. Hope it's as good for everyone else, or, failing that, that it will soon be as good.

That brightened up my day!

And we're getting ready for Fourth of July tomorrow. I'm making lemonade components, because Mom Pony doesn't like doing that, and I made extra sugar syrup so that she can freeze it and have it for later when she wants to use it but doesn't feel like making it. That's the beauty of dividing labor.

That sounds delightful. I'm going to live vicariously through you for a bit, just imagining it! :-)

Okay! Imagine a little blond baby who looks EXACTLY like his Daddy when he smiles, and he smiles a lot. Imagine his parents, who are both super smart (Momma has her Ph.D, and Daddy is working away on his) and who love to sing and dance and are strong enough to do what makes them happy, whether or not it's what the authority figures in their lives want them to do. Those were my hosts.

Now imagine a wedding party for a couple so perfectly matched that their friends have completely forgotten that they haven't known each other all their lives. The ceremony featured music written by the groom's friends and the bride's childhood rabbi talking about how wonderful it was to watch her grow up. The reception featured almost constant dancing to live swing music, delicious food, and the party favors were CDs of the band. Imagine the groom's college friends being called for a photo and then spontaneously breaking out into the Fairest College's fight song afterwards, in harmony, with the groom joining in, because of course he knows the harmony parts. That was the reason I was in the city.

Yes! This visit East has been entirely successful so far. I'm having a wonderful time.
