Dear Jasper and Kestrel,
This morning I woke up early and started more bread. It takes a while to make, and I wanted some soft bread for our celebration of the Royal Wedding of Prince Harry of England to his American bride, Meghan Markle.
Once the bread was started, our friend and hair stylist, Shanoa Perez, came by to cut everyone’s hair. She doesn’t have a shop anymore, and has lots of other projects, but she is sweet enough to come by every few months and make the whole family beautiful. She does good work!
The bread rose, got punched down and put into buttered pyrex dishes, and rose again. Then in 20 minutes, we had two loaves of lovely soft white bread. Some of this, and some heavier whole grain bread, was sliced, buttered, cream cheesed, yogurt spread, and finished with slices of cucumber and smoked salmon. Some even got strawberries! These tiny open faced sandwiches were placed on Auntie Olga’s best tiered serving dish and, along with mimosas, became our lunch.
Uncle David found the replay of the Royal Wedding on youtube.com, and Auntie Olga and I ate our high tea and enjoyed the church, clothes, songs and sermons of the wedding. Cousin Liza had her lunch and watched too, but didn’t have the patience of young Princess Charlotte, and went off to play with her robot for a while.
I haven’t walked more than thirty feet today, compared to the three miles yesterday, but I am still going to have a lay down. Being royal, even a day late and in jeans, is tiring!
