We were a few days late, but our Supper Club was Mardi Gras themed. Scheduling difficulties meant we hadn't gathered in a few months and everyone was in a festive mood and happy to be together. The food, as ever, was excellent, the hurricanes were lethal and conversation buoyant.
The next day was Tim's birthday and we had designs to bake a cake and have company to celebrate. But alas, a power outage for the better part of the day (and maybe those hurricanes a bit) derailed our plans and we mostly spent the day relaxing. The kids felt a bit robbed by the lack of cake but were willing to settle for the donuts we picked up when we were out seeking much needed morning coffee.
