Warming Up the Oven & Thoughts on Age

Tomorrow and the remainder of the week are supposed to be miserable - very hot, very humid - the kind of days that will make me bemoan the fact that I don't have A/C at home. I don't do heat well. I used to have no problems with it, but that was more than 35 years younger and more than 50 pounds lighter. I think if I had less poundage things would be better, but the one thing that has aged with me is my metabolism. So even though I maximize my days by minimal sleep and maximal experience, I can't keep my weight at a reasonable level with minimal maintenance as I used to be able to when I was younger. AGING IS NOT FOR THE TIMID! Oh you readers of mine who are younger than my own tickling 60, take that to heart.

Happy Birthday Aearwen

aearwen2  has her birthday today and I'm determined to celebrate it in style.  So, for one of my favorite musicians and a dear person who has become a treasured friend over the past few months, I offer the following picture.  My cousin recently went to Germany and in her travels visited the Deutsch Museum in Munich where she found this fabulous room of old harpsichords (and a harp sticking out in the background).  I couldn't think of a better photo to celebrate your birthday!
