Sundays around the house

Another domestic day. The boy and I will go look for a bookshelf for his room. He has amassed quite the collection and it is growing all the time. We have measured the walls, his bed, his current clothes cubby, all of it. We might get him a bookshelf and a little desk. He likes to sit and concentrate on things: eating ice cream and the application of crayons to paper.

I have been getting cookbooks of all types. It is my new joy, cooking. Last night I grilled a whole chicken and some mixed vegetables. The basics of cooking are easier than I had guessed and should not have been such a lifelong impediment to entry into the art form.

Success consists of going from failure to failure without loss of enthusiasm. - Churchill
