Saturday brought….a gathering of my kids, more pesto production, a celebration of a century (my DIL’s mom’s 50th birthday Sunday and my upcoming 50th birthday), fresh apple cider, a build your own burrito feast, many hugs, kind words, smiles and good wishes. It brought a huge surprise! I walked into the kitchen and my oldest sister (and surrogate mom) from Chicago was waiting to give me a hug. I loved to have her enter my world, meet my friends, love my people. Her birthday was yesterday.
Saturday also brought a PaperBackSwap book in the mail, The Philosopher in the Kitchen by Jean-Anthelme Brillat-Savarin, and, with it, this quote. It provided a hearty laugh. I give it to you with apologies to my thin readers.
for to them beauty is more than life itself,
and beauty consists above all in roundness of form
and gracefully curving lines.
