Melissa and I painted dominoes yesterday morning. We were so engrossed in it that by the time Tom and Tina called to say they were too tired to go back to Baltimore we were relieved. This gave us more time to spend on our little masterpieces. It is really one addicting craft.
Her are Melissa's creations. I like the roadrunner. She did it in honor of her mother who feeds a family of roadruuners a meatball every day.
Tom and Tina came over in the afternoon and relaxed and read books on the deck.
Coda and I took Melissa for a walk on the fire road. Fortunately, we're still enjoying lovely weather here.
We came back and re-energized with a little fudge from the Fudgery in the Inner Harbor. We like to stop there to listen to the employees sing, but they also have terrific fudge.
Melissa and I played a little duet we were working on--"I'll Fly Away." She enjoyed Amanda's harp, but found it disconcerting that the colors of the F and C strings were not consistent! But she powered through it, and we did great!
While we waited for Ed to come home Melissa taught us how to play Farkle. Well, actually, I was the only one who had never played. I liked it a lot. There is nothing quite as satisfying as rolling dice, is there?
We finished up the evening by driving up to O'Lordan's in Westminster. They must have the world's best Irish Stew! And the biggest! The Arizona Bushes are leaving today, but we sure enjoyed their visit! It is wonderful to have family, and even more wonderful to have wonderful family!
