And the beat goes on...

Last night we had a lovely time at Barb's. TBG officially retired and we celebrated with his favorite champagne and Barb made his favorite meal and I got him his favorite dessert. We were home all tucked into bed by 8:30.

Midnight we were both woken up by all the fireworks and explosions. Pyewacket was so scared that she wedged herself between us and wouldn't leave all night. Titan and Jenny were also upset, but the kids didn't seem to care.

This is how much Patachou cared...

And for the first time in forever, I had an orchid bloom.

And now, I need to get back to work taking the decorations down.

Take care and stay safe!
