July 9th

Dear July,
We had a party tonight. I like parties, when they’re mine. I like being a hostess, ducking from one place to the next. Putting food out. Making sure people know each other. Cleaning up empty bottles. Chatting. I like all that. I made piles and piles of food – much of it vegan and/or gluten free. Making piles of food is what I like the best. People ask if I made it all and I reply that of course I did, even the pitta chips (it’s very easy to make pitta chips).
Tonight I didn’t drink much, everyone went home by 1:00am, and I cleaned up before bed. This was basically perfect, as far as I’m concerned. All of this maybe makes me a bit boring but I don’t care.
