1. Samantha did a lovely thing: she went to Sweet Life and, to celebrate her deceased father's birthday, bought herself a piece of the best cake she'd ever tasted in her life.
2. I fell into a foul mood today and I'm not quite sure why. It almost felt like I might be dropping into the black hole again, a place I haven't been since March, 2009. I told the Deke and Samantha that I was out of sorts and not to take anything personally and they understood. What a relief. My dark mood had nothing to do with them and that they accepted this and that the Deke asked me a few questions about my condition helped me lighten up. So did going to bed really early.
3. I made a really good pasta sauce yesterday, but our family decided not to eat it and tonight the Deke and I dove into it, spooning it over penne. Having it age a day made this tasty sauce really tasty today and we savored its multiple flavors and textures.
