It's Hydrangeas and Hospitality

We are in between houseguests for a few days--I don't think I mentioned we just finished hosting a friend from Taiwan who stayed with us twenty years ago and was brave enough to come back :)

We had a great time showing her the ins and outs of our daily life--from organ practice to Sunday dinner to tattooing the rabbits' ears to picking blueberries.

Tonight we celebrated Felix's birthday, a joy. The Composer suggested gifts inspired by things Felix had borrowed recently, so he got a cat carrier and an ice chest. I guess he's a grown-up now.

"The Composer suggested gifts inspired by things Felix had borrowed recently." - Maybe it's the lateness of the hour, but this is making me chuckle.

Gorgeous hydrangeas, too! I planted three hydrangea bushes this year - my first experiment with them - and so far, they haven't died, but they haven't produced much evidence of growth either. And certainly no blooms! Maybe next year? Meanwhile, I'll admire yours. :)

Love those gifts and that's a good tip for any gift-giving! As a middle-aged adult, I STILL could use a good ice chest :)

They have a cat? He's definitely settled!

Ha, that's the same with us, tools for our son now that he has a "fixer-upper" also!
Love your pretty Depression glass goblets, I have just one left from a set, I use my things and they do break.

Oh my! And that, right there, explains why I have enjoyed your blog for more than ten years now...we share a wry sense of humor. Love it!

Felix and I share a birthday!
And I also received a lovely arrangement of blue and pink hydrangeas from our yard, along with dusty pink lilies.
Your centerpiece is lovely, Anna.

Happy birthday Felix!

Our children tell me they know they're an adult when they get excited about underwear and socks for their birthday.

Thanks for your hospitality. Enjoy staying with your lovely family. You keep a harmonious parent-child relationship give children an excellent environment for the growth. All of them are excellent. Congratulations.
