Yes there were children -- mine and other peoples -- and there was a dance recital, burgers on the grill and music & wine on the deck (for those of us with the IDs to prove it. For the others, there was Netflix and popcorn.)
Sunday was another flurry of returning these unexpected guests to their various homes; the last of which was my lovely daughter Molly. As she was returning with a trunk load of stuff from my basement, I gladly drove her to the city. But after a weekend of work and festivity and driving, a body gets mighty hungry.

Walking back to the car, I noticed another eating establishment I'd long wanted to visit: Susie's Cupcakes. I thought "This will be just the ticket for dessert later"! And with just a little extra enthusiasm from Molly (just look at that bright, shiny face), I was persuaded to enter ..... for one cupcake each, right?
How does one decide between "Dulce de Leche" or "Lemon Zinger" or "Snowball" or "Death by Chocolate" or any of the other marvelous flavors. AND when you see the 50% off selection (that didn't sell at the Farmer's Market), well, you know you're done for. Resistance is futile.
Half a dozen for Molly & her boyfriend and half a dozen for Nagisa and I. Perfect!
And although I practiced, I resisted eating one until later.

It was a tiring, delightful, delicious weekend. How was yours?
