Then my nice son bought me a mocha latte at Starbucks, which brightened my day considerably. After that we found a store with the most amazing kaleidoscopes. I really love kaleidoscopes and these were particularly fantastic, so I had a wonderful time. Now we are home relaxing in the insane heat. Happy birthday to me!
I should also give some credit to my sister, who cheered me up after I woke her up at some ungodly hour crying about coffee in my keyboard. My sister is the greatest!
