Cousin Julie and her husband Scott arrived last Sunday morning, so we’ve been enjoying visiting with them this week. We’ve had a lot of good food: Corte Comedor, Mishiguene, La Alacena – not to mention good conversations and a bottle or two of wine. John took them on a tour of the Ambassador’s residence Friday, as well as a walk-through of the embassy.

I went for drinks and a show with Lea, Rachel, and Rachel last night – we went downtown to see the Spanish version of “Rent.” It was a fun, energetic cast, and even though I couldn’t really follow the Spanish, it was still a lot of fun.

John and I finished the “Pride and Prejudice” series, then watched the Keira Knightly movie version. Next up is “Sense and Sensibility.” I finally finished Anne Patchett’s “Bel Canto” – I enjoyed it a lot but it took me a while to get through it. It’s good, but just one of those books that was hard for me to pick up again once I had put it down. Next up is a light book club book.

Happy birthday to Joan today!
