And someone else had already brought dinner

The shawl is almost finished, but I’ve decided to make the edging longer: not because I have to, but at long last because I want to. It’s going to be gorgeous.

The friend who has shown up at my door several times when I’ve been sick with a quart of mango juice from Trader Joe’s just because it’s my favorite, knowing it would cheer me up, sent out a note today: did anyone have crutches for her height?

We have some, but they’re my son’s and he’s 19″ taller than she is, so I couldn’t help her on that one. But anyone who’s sprained both ankles needs a little something to cheer her up.

What I really wanted to do was help watch her little kids who were running in and out of the house, but that whole sun thing…

I put the chocolate torte in her fridge so she wouldn’t have to get up.

And it was enough.

p.s. Happy Birthday to my daughter-in-law, Kim! And to my son John yesterday.

Chocolate to the rescue…. I’m sure it speeds healing too. Happy birthday to the kids. Have fun finishing the gorgeousness.

Happy birthdays to Kim and John! And I’m pretty sure the torte was about 20 miles beyond “enough.” 😉

Torte? I have no retort.

I knew you’d find someone to give that torte to — I’ll bet those little kids will get a bit too!

Chocolate cures everything so does a trip to the chiropractor for sprained ankles, (from past experience)

Well done. If offered one of your tortes or a pair of crutches, I know what I’d choose!
