Priorities / Prioridades

La versión español está después de la versión inglés.

MY PAL LUKE turned 4 in November. There was a kids’ party on the actual day. We adults finally had our own little celebration for him over the weekend. San Geraldo baked the cake; Luke was in the mood for vanilla this year. And SG did not disappoint. Just looking at the photos two days later and my mouth waters. Ditto the dinner. Pedro made an amazing paella.

UNSURPRISINGLY, LUKE WAS JUST A bit wired. He had a little pile of gifts to open. We couldn’t wait for his reaction to the interactive world globe we had gotten him. He loved it. Especially the bubble wrap and the box. Ah, to be 4.


MI AMIGUITO LUKE cumplió 4 años en noviembre. Hubo una fiesta infantil en el día real. Los adultos finalmente tuvimos nuestra pequeña celebración durante el fin de semana. San Geraldo horneó el pastel; Luke estaba de humor para la vainilla este año. Y SG no decepcionó. Solo mirando las fotos dos días después y se me hace la boca agua. Lo mismo ocurre con la cena. Pedro hizo una paella increíble.

LUKE ESTABA UN POCO CONECTADO, como era de esperar. Tenía una montañita de regalos para abrir. No podíamos esperar su reacción ante el globo terráqueo interactivo que le habíamos conseguido. Le encantó. Especialmente el plástico de burbujas y la caja. Ah, para ser 4.

    1. Anne Marie,
      Paella and cake were equally excellent. Luke had great gifts. That night, however, his faves were the bubble wrap and big box.

    1. Mistress Maddie,
      Oh, I hope Anne Marie enjoys the attention… any kind of attention. The cats see Luke and they run under the bed.

    1. Debra,
      SG is amazing. He has such a good time when he bakes and his cakes are always delicious. My mouth is still watering.

  1. Yes…..that cake looks delicious! Looks like a pound cake.
    So much excitement for a four year old…..

    1. Jim,
      Not at all like a pound cake, though. Light and moist. But I’m having coffee right now and pound cake would be so nice. Jerry? Oh, JE-REE.

    1. Deedles,
      I’m with you on the bubble wrap. SG yells at me; the sound drives him crazy. And, come to think of it, the box would be really fun, too.

  2. WOW! what a Birthday, do you rent SG out to people so he can bake them cake, you could make a lot of money that way. The Cake looks Fabou. The face of Luke looking at the candle is too funny.

    1. Larrymuffin,
      Everyone here says Jerry should bake cakes for their restaurants. But that would take all the fun out if it for him.

    1. Walt the Fourth,
      Pedro is a really good cook. The paella was amazing. And Luke is loved and knows it. It warms my heart.
