I Became A Mother

I became a mother for the first time thirty years ago today at eight fifty nine in the morning.

It was one of the four best things I've done in my life.
(marrying DZ, and being the mother of Peter and Adeline, are the other three)

Happy Birthday Sophie!

A Starry Night

It was so much fun putting this video together.

Loud claps to Adeline's (and Matt's) artistic abilities and technical expertise.

A Future Biker

There are some heavy duty bicyclists living with us.  They go on these amazing bike rides at 6 am.
Up very steep hills...and windy roads...and riding very fast...sometimes clocking over 100 miles in one week.
So it would not surprise you to see the beginnings of the indoctrination of the next generation
Starting with this:

Could this q-t-pie be a future contender for the Tour d' France?
