Saturday was a very social day with a triple birthday party, including my father-in-law, who turned 89. That was followed by a nice, calm and entertaining dinner with Natalie and her family. It was a nice day. But, a tickle that started out in my throat that morning had worked its way into much more of a something by the end of the evening. The next two days were spent sleeping and reading on the couch, though I am very bad at relaxing. I spent time visiting with Ethan as well. It was a good thing to take the day off at work.

From time to time, bits of popular culture get stuck in my head. Old Spice recently published such a commercial. Larr likes to hum the tune.Perhaps you'll enjoy it, too:
I am also really enjoying Divergent by Veronica Roth. It is a dystopic novel where the 16 year old protagonist takes a test that is designed to help guide her as she chooses which faction she will be part of. Each faction focuses on a single trait, each dedicated to the cultivation of a particular virtue. These are: Abnegation, Erudite, Dauntless, Amity, and Candor.
