Ship’s Log–July 3rd


We spent today avoiding the sun again. Thing 1 had better start sitting under an umbrella on the beach, or she’s only going to be able to go once a week and then spend the rest of the week healing!

The highlight of our day was spending the evening having dinner and playing cards with friends. It was wonderful to be invited over…I know how intimidating it can be to plan a meal for people who don’t eat meat or dairy, but our friends decided to overcome their worries and do it anyway! They pulled it off well, especially the quinoa salad, and then ending the meal with some amazing vegan brownies. We spent the rest of the evening learning to play Spite and Malice, a wonderfully vicious card game that I suspect will fast become a family favorite.
