We have a piano!!!
This past weekend my husband flew down to Virginia to help his dad clear out his house in preparation for putting it on the market. He drove, according to T, a “huuuuuge tuck” home on Sunday and inside, among many lovely and useful things, was a piano. :-)
It’s a Kimball classic upright with a lovely tone (although it now needs tuning, of course) and the kids are as smitten as I am:
Another happy thing is the strawberry cake I made yesterday afternoon. It’s a thick batter, almost pound-cake density, topped with fresh berries and sprinkled with sugar. It bakes up beautiful and golden with some of the berries sinking into the cake a bit. It’s a summer favorite around here. :-)
