Stella and Willy invited us over tonight to celebrate the arrival of their new dining room furniture. We turned it into an impromptu birthday celebration for Stella, as her birthday is tomorrow. (Their furniture is lovely by the way, a tall set, square table that seats 8). Excellent spaghetti dinner, my sister cooks a mean sauce for someone that doesn't eat meat. Seems kinda silly that the birthday girl cooked her own dinner, but sometimes that's the way you get to surprise someone.
