Avery and I had a very short visit with Bob, because he wasn’t feeling very well.  We stopped at the grocery store for pizza fixings, then went home to cut up veggies and make fruit salad.  Lisa and Evelyn arrived in the early afternoon.  We enjoyed Avery and Evelyn’s home-made pizzas for dinner.

We are beginning to settle into something resembling a routine.  Today, the Dogs started their weekly visit to PupTown.  They were pretty excited to be there!

The closing on my Minnetonka home happened without a hitch.  I was not being honest with myself as to just how nervous I was about that.
