babies, embassies, and surprise
posted by soe 1:50 am

I am bone tired, but I still have a heap of dishes to wash, so this will be a quick list of three beautiful things from my past week:

1. Rudi and I head out on our bikes along the C&O Canal towpath, hoping to see ducklings. We see some, as well as three families of goslings in various states of growth.

2. Saturday was E.U. Day, so many of the union’s members held open houses at their embassies to celebrate. We stopped by Austria for drinks, by Slovakia for food and folk dancing, and by Hungary to see a dog.

3. Rudi obligingly had a round birthday today, so I decided to mark it by throwing him a surprise party. Friends from all aspects of our D.C. lives came together in uncommunicativeness so that when he walked into the room, he really was surprised.

How about you? What’s been beautiful in your world this week?

GOSLINGS!! I’m eagerly awaiting Mother Goose near Paul’s office to have hers so he can take pics for me 🙂 And soon the Swamp Swans will have cygnets!
