I’m nearly at the end of a year-long journey of getting my son with his unusual skills placed in a good post-high school program. Nothing is totally settled yet, so I can’t completely relax.

Cooking: I made chicken and pineapple tacos with a cilantro/avocado spread this weekend. Actually, we made it twice, because we had two parties. Steve did chicken his own way, but the pineapple and the avocado spread were from this recipe. Home-run recipe.
Adventure: On Saturday, we’re taking a day trip with Ian to a rail trail and new brewery in New Paltz, NY. Last weekend, we visited a friend’s cabin in the Poconos; the cabin has a unique history, but I just loved the retro vibe. Picture above.
Watching: We’re watching Ms. Marvel on Disney+. Tomorrow, we’re going with Ian and a group of autistic kids to see Thor. Last season of Peaky Blinders.
