The My Day In Pictures articles are to keep friends and family updated on what is going on with my life. It was instituted at the request and for the benefit of one of my favorite people in the world, one of my aunts who is a retired telephone operator and lives a few hours away from me.

Swedish Meatballs and Lingonberry Sauce with Last Night’s Episode of Breaking Bad

After my mom, dad, and youngest sister stopped by this afternoon for banana birthday cake, my brother and, later, my sister-in-law, came over for dinner.  We ended up opting for Swedish meatballs with lingonberry sauce and chunky red potatoes, while Tara, Aaron, and I caught up on last night’s episode of Breaking Bad, which none…
