"Life isn't long enough to do all you could accomplish. And what a privilege even to be alive. In spite of all the pollutions and horrors, how beautiful this world is.
Supposing you only saw the stars once every year. Think what you would think. The wonder of it!"--Tasha Tudor

Where have I been?

This past week has been filled with exhausting yet lovely events. I will work my way backward from Sunday! Sunday was my mom's birthday. We took a ride up to the Pompeii & Caesar restaurant at the Mohegan Sun Casino in Connecticut. She knew she had a reservation for dinner as she was staying there overnight, but didn't expect to see us all sitting in the restaurant for a surprise dinner party! Oh my, the food was not only delicious, but almost too pretty to eat. I had the roasted heirloom beet salad and the lemon risotto. A birthday cake--chocolate cake with raspberry mousse filling iced with whipped cream--was brought in specially. Just the look on her face alone was well worth the hour and a half + ride up and back after dinner. Although staying overnight was seriously tempting, we had to get home. Corgis and critters to take care of; you know how it is.......
