1. The weather forecast changing from wet to dry – and Ma Nature supporting the new plan.
2. Attending a dinner party hosted by one of my sweetie’s colleagues. The event was a truly global affair – 13 people attended from two continents: The hostess and her husband (American), the hostess’s mom (American), two female friends of the hostess (American), my sweetie and I (American), three business partners of the hostess (Indian), two of the wives of the Indian men (also Indian), and one almost-three-year-old son of one of the Indian couples (need I state the obvious that the little boy is also Indian?). 😉 It was a very different, very interesting, and very fun night.
3. Bringing the puppies to the dinner party! The hostess is a huge fan of dogs, and hinted/suggested/told us that our guys would be more than welcome to come…. The pups were a huge hit (of course), and I loved sharing them with the people at the party (some of whom had never actually touched a dog before). Novel experiences all around…
