Back in the Desert
Indio, California: After a quick
three nights in Los Angeles, we have returned to Indio. Dog-free, but still
recovering from three days with youngsters. Goodness, grandchildren are so busy.
And they wake so early.
This is what happens when you ruin a perfectly wholesome
organic toaster waffle with miniature chocolate chips melting into the
little waffle craters... and Lucy isn't even our chocolate lover. That is
Messes aside, I can't help but report Our Grandchildren are so very well
behaved, adorable, clever and helpful (when they are with us - overnight).
Sunday mornings are for long breakfasts and snuggling.
Leo had Hebrew school Sunday morning, and after we fetched him,
we all went to a second breakfast-slash-brunch-lunch at a local cafe.
I did it again. I ordered the special polenta cake, covered

but I will continue to try.
Meanwhile in Phoenix...
Lisa and Lenny were taking selfies and sending them to us

We have been to this stadium when the
Ducks lost to Auburn in 2011. Lenny was at this stadium two years ago
when Washington lost to the Cardinals... and Lenny was here Sunday when
Washington lost again to the Cardinals. Maybe our family should simply
boycott the Cardinal stadium completely?

We watched the game with the kids. Okay... the game was on
the television, but DT was the only one really paying attention. We had
pizza and a salad and pretended to try to find Mom and Dad in the stadium
crowd on television (did not happen). With a few minutes left in the game...
when Lenny knew it was all over... Lenny and Lisa headed for the parking lot
and made it back to their house before 11p.
They found a mostly-organized house, two sleeping children, one sleeping
dog, and two tired parents.
This morning, after everyone was off to school, Dave and I returned to
