It's a lazy day, this post-Thanksgiving Sunday. Cold, rainy, all my family curled up in the living room, still in our pj's. Darling Daughter just returned from Santa Barbara, visiting friends and doing the full college tour at UC-Santa Barbara, and she's telling tales. My niece is laying on the couch. Sweet Boy's watching a movie. The dogs are asleep. The girls are begging John to make them breakfast, and suddenly I smell bacon.
