Big excitement here in Virginia. More exciting than kale if you can imagine that.
Tomorrow night The Hai, as the German Girls father refers to himself arrives. He's a handful of exuberance ( his word). Never seen without a glass of red wine in his hand or a camera around his neck. He's that perfect combo: scientist/artist.
And to what do we owe the honor? Tini, GG's sister will wed her true love Nirmal on Friday afternoon at a courthouse in Maryland. Then we'll all adjourn to a tapas restaurant and toast the bride and groom and fight to make toasts and take pictures. At some point there will probably be dancing.
This will somewhat ease the pain of not being able to go to India next month for the big wedding.
We'll need to refresh the house, scrub a few floors, fill the rooms with flowers, stock up on wine and bread and cheeses. Much food will be consumed, many languages spoken and I hope we'll all bask in a weekend of love and happiness.
January continues to be very very good to us.
