Everything is all right

Today turned out to be a good day.

Ample guitar practice in the morning resulting in productive guitar classes in the afternoon. The teacher was very complimentary as we were leaving, which gives me such a feeling of satisfaction. Ziad and Maya are finishing up their respective guitar books, and seem on target to graduate to their next levels in January.

On to park day, where Ziad has found a group of friends. It's such an amazing thing for me to watch them roaming the grass together. These have every sign of being stable, real friendships for him. It's been a long time coming. I genuinely like these boys' moms, too.

Then home to soup that I made this morning, guitar practice to remember the new material they learned today, dishwashing, showers, and bed. Everything feels very squared away and comfortable.

Menus for the day:

Breakfast: scrambled eggs with cinnamon toast and orange juice

Lunch: pasta e fagiole, raw baby carrots, chocolate bundt cake (from Trader Joe's), and milk

Dinner: beef and barley soup, whole wheat toast with butter, milk


The menu above is actually what Ziad and Maya ate. What I ate was slightly different:

Before breakfast: hot black tea, peach-orange-guava juice

Breakfast: leftover chicken and rice, coffee

After breakfast: a little bit of the scrambled eggs, which were really exceptionally good

Lunch: leftover kefta kabob from the middle eastern deli, fruitcake

Dinner: beef and barley soup and the top crust from Ziad's toast, which he doesn't really like

And in the interests of full disclosure, the pasta e fagioli that they had for lunch was left over from dinner the night before. There's still some left, which I'll probably have for breakfast tomorrow ....
