It was an up and down week. I started out grumpy, ended up stressed, now calming down. Bright spots—lunch with Peggy on Wednesday. Thank you SO much, girl. It did my heart good and the food was so good I forgot to take a picture.


Thursday night we had Dennis over for an early birthday dinner and Ernie made a lovely flourless chocolate cake. It looked prettier before we demolished it. My meal wasn't my best but it was a nice night.


Friday evening, drinks with Teri and Brian. Other than that I don't have much news. Owen seems to be sick so I'm asking him to keep the distance from his dad but that probably won't work as they're like puppies sometimes. Yesterday was quiet…I tried to get caught up on work since I'll be away for a few days. Today? Get organized for our trip. Laundry and the like.

The weight of David Olney's memorial and the devastation in Nashville weigh on me. I feel clunky and off-kilter, I don't know if that's why or if it's something else. I feel bleary and am tempted to go back to bed. I will persevere. So looking forward to seeing dear friends tomorrow.

For all my Olney loving friends who can't be in Nashville, you'll be able to watch the live stream.
