Today is N’s 24th b’day and K’s and my 28th anniversary.

Feels very monumental.

And, as is seasonally appropriate, I’m feeling grateful, for family and friends and connections and health — for two great kids embarking on adventurous lives; for 28 years with K; for Lucy and all her predecessors; for family and friends; for the fact that it’s not over yet.

My Vermont friend and her son came over for dinner last night. I made a big pot of this soup, which was so delicious and filling. All afternoon I cooked, while M sat, tucked into the comfy chair, writing a paper. A and her son arrived on bicycles from the city. I had a long talk with A on the porch in the cold air while K walked to the wine store. I’m so glad to have connected with her again.

It’s good.

  1. Just when I thought I had no idea what to cook for supper you provided me with the recipe. I happen to have most of those ingredients lurking in the fridge but they had not previously suggested soup to me. Many congratulations on your monumental anniversaries.
