Maria has a birthday this week but won't be here, so we had a first celebration today. She will get another - the real one - next Sunday when we all have more time. She asked for a rich chocolate cake. She got one - really rich, with chocolate cream filling and chocolate butter cream frosting.
|It isn't elegant like yours, Pam, but it tasted good.|
Before she went home,Maria asked for some help on some drawings she was doing for a co-worker's "leaving gift" envelope - lion cubs. She finished it at home tonight. I think the lady will be pleased.

Then it was time for chores and a walk in the dusk.

I told some of you that I would write out instructions for posting comments, explaining the German words, but that will have to wait for tomorrow. Sleep has to be a priority for Moms to thrive.
