Fam Day 2020

This has been my favorite day so far in this decade. 

Clint wasn't able to join us, so we swapped in Dani's sister.

We played games. 
Skip Bo, Scattegories, Dutch Blitz, Ticket to Ride, NOT MONOPOLY, Scrabble ...

And measured Austin to see if she'd grown at all in the past 5 years.

And while Dani and I finished planning our May trip, the others played Minecraft...

I wish there was a Family Day once a month. 

Three things I'm thankful for:

1. Days like these. Kids at cabin. Sun in sky. Brain operating at about 75% capacity. Only two small tender areas on chest. Evening at book club. PERFECT WAY TO END MY MEDICAL LEAVE. Back to work tomorrow.

2. Movies. Saw 1917 and Parasite recently. Both were riveting. And watched a lovely old movie on Netflix: Flipped. 

3. Walks, talks, lunches, coffees, dinners with friends everyday last week. So many great days, all in a row, celebrating All The Good Things .

4. Surprise mail. From England. I have a new pen pal, we met on Twitter and she sent me a lovely card to let me know how happy she was that I've finished treatment. The world is filled with kind people. 

Take care,
