today was rather lovely. Jill and Chas got here a little after one, and we went out to Redmond to Grant and Anjela's, and the five of us and Ari went to crossroads for lunch. crossroads has some damned good vietnamese food. there was running around in crafts stores and bed bath and beyond for the girls, and chess for the guys, and another attempt (i think this one worked) at teaching me to crochet, and back to Grant and Anjela's, and more conversation, and carrot cake, and pizza, and stuff. it was a good day, and it was very good to see Jill and Chas.
