Balloons are childlike good omens

A good day for a six year old is finding a stray balloon in the parking lot, which is what happened today. In other good six year old news, I brought an optical illusion along to show her friends when I picked her up from school, and we are within ten pages of the end of the first Harry Potter book — leaving off with Harry screaming “NEVER!” at Voldemort. We’ll read the last few pages of the book before school in the morning, so I imagine she’ll dream up an alternate ending in the meantime.


For supper I cooked cod with a mild balsamic, lime, and rosemary marinade alongside purple cauliflower (which has been in our last four meals as we worked our way through it) and asparagus with rice, which was quite delicious. Tonight I’ll continue puttering along on the search tool — there’s really not much left to do but I keep adding features and it’s up to a whopping 4,200 lines of code or something like that — and then I’ll watch UFC before bed. Tomorrow I have more doctor’s appointments, but nothing exciting — I’m now in limbo for about a month and a half as I wait for some scans and genetic testing.

    Baloons are good omens for any age, imo.

Wow Shannon, that's really annoying! What is it, 1997 on Geocities? Retroweb is NOT cool!
