Wednesday is Spaghetti Night
I'm glad we had dinner together tonight. Wednesday evenings are great for company. Last weekend and next weekend seem equally far away. When weekends do arrive, they are usually so jam-packed of have-to-dos and want-to-dos that I'm hesitant to add any more to them. If I had company coming on a weekend night, I'd spend all day getting ready. That's not possible on a Wednesday night. It's come as you are, come as we are, enjoy what we have to offer, and enjoy the casual comfort of a home that welcomes you in, if not dressed in its Sunday best.
One of my favorite quotes of the evening was when Will, age 5, looked at Katie as she was holding 4-month old Peter and said, "That baby looks like a meatball." I think that was the perfect statement on Wednesday, spaghetti night. Can't wait to do it again.
