Today was my friend Nona's birthday. She decided she wanted to spend it with me. I was so incredibly tickled. :)
Since she is the mother of 9, she rarely travels alone. Not only did we get Nona, but we got Dan, and Jon, and Heidi and Alex and Travis and Aubrey. I was not the only person with a friend in the house-everyone got a friend. We celebrated the day by sitting and cutting up cucumbers for limewater pickles and cutting broccoli and cauliflower for the dehydrator. We made pork and bean chimichangas for dinner. Then she took a nap and Aubrey made banana pudding with nilla wafers.
The kids swam, we laughed and talked and talked and talked. We looked at all the gardens and talked some more. They left after the fire flies and the stars were out. We stood out in the driveway dancing to a Jason Okuma (?) song. I was holding #5 and we were dancing. She loved it. Alex loved it. The kidlets were all tired and extremely happy. Nona is making plans to renovate the hay loft so she can move in.
It was a great day.
it was Justin Nozuka.
