December 17

Lauren and I went to The Getty Center this afternoon -- the light up there was glorious today! We enjoyed a storytelling session, learning about a marquetry cabinet built for King Louis XIV. Then of course we had to visit Lauren's favourite painting, Maria Frederike van Reede-Athlone at Seven by Jean-√Čtienne Liotard. What a lovely way to spend the afternoon.

Lucky you still to have a child regularly in your life :)

Alison, yes, I'm very lucky. Lauren's at a great age -- just nine -- where she has an almost-adult vocabulary but retains the excitement and wonder of childhood. Now that she's over the resentment of getting a stepmother, she's a ton of fun to hang out with.
