- 9:15 - 10:15: Otto from next door kept them entertained while I cleaned my bathroom and hung some art
- 12:30 - 2-ish: Allison B. and her daughter Daniella came by; Allison brought cookies and kept me company while I straightened books on the library shelves, and then helped me tear paper for my book cover design, more on that soon
- 2:30 - 5:30: Ritu, her husband, and their daughter visited; they helped me take down curtains that needed hemming, kept me company while I hemmed, and then helped me put them up again; they also brought a lentil salad and a bottle of wine.
Sometimes, I feel quite brilliant. And also quite blessed in friends and neighbors.
