Today has been a much better day. Although a little cough remains, the cold is generally gone (yay!).
Additionally, we had some surprise visitors this evening: Some friends of ours who live in Sedona AZ were in town for a visit. We normally only get to see them when they are out here (we don’t get much of a chance to get out to Sedona, pretty as it is), and we had a delightful dinner with them (and gf_guruilla and Small&Feisty had a lovely afternoon with them).
