NY Summer weather is weird. Very warm and humid. We've had clouds most of the day (leaves the interior of the house dark), and thundershowers on a couple of them. Doesn't cool off much at night.

Yeah, they had some of those on display. I would totally have purchased a replica, had they sold them in the bookstore.

If you ever make it to the San Diego metro area, there is a major installation (Queen Califia's Magic Circle) in Kit Carson Park, in Escondido. We like to take visitors there. (Currently open Tuesdays only, from 9 to noon.)

She sold perfume, jewelry, books, etc. to support her public art--to reduce her dependence on rich patrons.

Home again. Real coffee (as in, "not flavored"). Own bed. Dogs happy.

I've just had some iced coffee with hazelnut milk and hazelnut sirop de noisettes. The idea and the hazelnut milk are from Little Miss JoeP who was here recently.

Oldest son comes home, tonight. Since January 1, he's been in NY, working as night nurse for our youngest son's baby, born last November.

Yesterday, the baby took control of her food--refuses to eat unless SHE is holding the spoon and putting it to her mouth. And still takes a bottle, but keeps both hands on it at all times.

Taking control of things is core to many developments as we grow up.

Including toddlers refusing to get into the bath if you allow any negotiation ... and after two hours in the bath, refusing to get out.

Was there any coffee-induced damage to clothes? computer equipment? cubicle walls? colleagues?

It happened at my home office (still now working on an approx. 12/13-hour shift) and yes, there was coffee in my lap, on my chair and on the floor. But the mug is tragicallyforever broken.

It is a particularly popular design which is sometimes hard to find as The Groke is Mörkö in Finnish and that is what a heroic and beloved ice hockey player is called (based on his actual name Marko)

Yesterday, I drove up to LA with daughter no. 2 to pick up her car, repaired after a collision a few weeks ago. Her insurance paid for a rental, so she drove up, then I drove her car over to the dropoff site, and drove her home. Left the house at 8:45 for a 9:00 pickup of the car down here that took until 9:55. 2.5 hours to the body shop, then dropped off the rental, visited some nearby friends and had lunch, then left LA just after 2:30. Got home at 6. Talked son no. 1 into picking up Mexican for dinner.

Today, grandson is coming over for Father's Day dinner and to play Cards Against Humanity.
