The Birthday Weekend Celebration

Trixie's first novel was published 30 years ago, but she had never been invited to give a reading in Madison until now. Saturday, which also happened to be Anna's birthday, she read here as part of the Wisconsin Book Festival. The reading involved her and a local woman with a long name reading from their books about daughters dealing with their mothers' illnesses. I have heard Trixie read before, but between readings I often forget how good she is. It was a great deal of fun and the crowd was wonderful as well. So that was a nice way to spend the Birthday weekend.

The Birthday festivities included two large cooking undertakings on my part, a dinner with the rest of the people in Anna's MSTP program (who don't fall into the category of medical students), and the procurement of curtains that have transformed the look of our townhouse.
