The hospital in-services lasted until almost 11pm Tuesday night and my 3:30am wake up call Wednesday morning came awfully early. I had uneventful flights but by the time I drove up our driveway yesterday afternoon I was running on pure empty.
My Mom and Chuck were here when I arrived—the cowboy and Emmi were also very glad to see me. Diane, one of my first cousins, her husband Brent and their son Wyatt from Washington came for happy hour—it was so good to see them! They are renting a beautiful guest house near us. The last time we saw Diane and her family was in 2006 when I was doing an interim management assignment in the Seattle area. Wyatt is 20 years old and a delightful young man—personable, easy to talk to, helpful and he didn’t sit looking at his phone the whole time he visited with us! Diane and Brent have done a fabulous job raising their only child!
Mom and Chuck went into town for errands and stopped by to visit Nat. Michael spent the day loading and securing a huge window into our cargo trailer—the window is headed to our house in Arizona. He also washed the Can-Am—I think he likes that ATV—he sure is concerned with keeping it clean!
Diane, Brent and Wyatt joined us for supper tonight and we ate like kings! Ribs, corn on the cob, chicken tenders, Caesar salad with brownies and homemade ice cream for dessert. They are starting their journey back to Washington tomorrow.
Oh my is it ever smoky around here—heavy, heavy smoke. The mountains have disappeared behind a wall of smoke.
And the FedEx lady delivered my iPad—it’s so good to have it back!
