…room and board for the wayward travelers.
As you know I played hookie on Friday, not really, but I am so glad I did. I miss my family and it is so glorious when I am able to visit them or when they come to me.
After spending a month in the Sunshine State and a cruise through the Panama Canal, they were ready to get back to the everyday action that retired life will mean for them. I am imagining, some TV, reading, walks, golf, beach, Florida, Words with Friends, cooking for family…repeat. Oh, and since their home state is Massachusetts, they were headed back to snow and a frozen house.
This was the scene that greeted two of their sons when they dutifully went to shovel out the house and thankful to find it still standing as the other side of the house is the Atlantic Ocean.
The hard work paid off…the Kitchen King can make it to the house so dinner parties will resume as usual.
They arrived to my home tanned and tired after the trek from South Carolina where they stopped the evening before. It seems neither they nor the rest of the Hampton Inn slept very well during their one night stay…for some strange reason their car alarm kept going off even though no one was trying to steal the laundry they were bringing back from Florida. At the breakfast bar while making idle chatter with other guests who were bellying up to the waffle maker and complaining about the screeching alarm, they had to pretend that they had no idea who owned the offending vehicle. After downing a waffle and some coffee they slithered out the rear door and continued heading north.
Not wanting to waste anytime; the Family Matriarch and I sent the Kitchen King off for a nap because
we didn’t want our conversation interrupted by him he looked a bit tired from watching the car from the lobby all night. Hubster arrived home and we sent him to get ready for dinner out because once again we didn’t want anyone disturbing our conversation.
We had a delicious dinner. The Matriarch and I even let the guys participate in the conversation..when they could get a word in edgewise.
It was a short overnight visit…Hubster made our famous French crepes for breakfast and I packed chicken salad sandwiches for their trip up
Hopefully by the time they arrive home the ocean side of their house will be defrosted.
Thanks for stopping by…and especially thanks for not setting the car alarm.
