Although my children had plans with their spouses today, Charles outdid himself!
Last night we went into Durham to walk around and eat dinner at Tosca's. We ate on the patio and reminesced how a year ago we were eating on the patio in Casalicchio in Sicily. As we ate we watched a rainbow parade of beautifully dressed young women celebrating their graduations and proms. The fellows looked spiffy too in their tuxedos! What a show!
Today, Charles fixed a FABULOUS dinner: Lemon Caper Pork Chops, lemon caper sauce over cheese and porchini mushroom tortellini, and Italian-spiced spinach, garlic breadsticks and ice tea!
I finished the Tiramisu I couldn't finish last night! YUM YUM YUM!!
I worked on the journals for the grands. Michelle sent more photos of Taylor so I could add these to her album; and I added the 'artist' photos of Nick and Emily.
We've had storms all day -- rain, thunder, lightning, hail in some places, and tornado warnings still in effect.
And I FINALLY got a 'light' touch on the orchid -- HORRAY!!!!
All in all -- a lovely day -- quiet -- and wonderfully succulent!
