She said “Mom I really could use some company, I am headed to the Cities for a meeting.” I cleared my schedule and got myself organized to go.
I helped her drive..not in the traffic..but from our house to where the traffic begins. We stopped to shop..I bought a red sweater. We tried on bras..girly stuff. I should skip right over the part about the hot pink striped bra that I slipped over my head( Bad shoulder)that was too small..and I was trapped..it would not go down and I couldn’t get it off..of course I told Jen in the next dressing room about my predicament and began to giggle which only made it worse. I eventually extricated myself.
Anyways..back to the drive.
She almost missed a turn and took the corner on two wheels..well she says that is an exaggeration..she was just merging off the ramp quickly avoiding another car. I sucked all the spit in my mouth between my teeth.
We shared a room..she even let me watch TV for a little while. Good thing I was there as she didn’t throw that little latchy lock that prevents someone from entering the room. I took care of that.
Gosh the bed was hard. I got up at 4:44AM which is not exactly the middle of the night and read..whilst I was reading my stomach began to growl…so I took out a bag of almonds and dried cherries. I was being ever so quiet taking the morsels out of the bag..but she is a light sleeper.
“Mother must you keep sticking your hand in the bag making that terrible crinkling noise? Just dump some out already.” I finally went back to bed quietly and slept some more…then she woke me up and said “It’s time for breakfast.”
We had a lovely breakfast, she went to her meeting and I began a project. I finally got all of the recipes entered for the Cousins Cookbook. They are organized and edited. At noon I checked out and retired to the hotel lobby. They keep it about 50 degrees in that lobby, they don’t want people waiting around all day. Well I am used to the museum..and no heat..so their lobby was a piece of cake, three hours later I was headed for the pool area to warm up and spied Jen coming out of her meeting and we headed home.
It was a cold rainy day in almost Minneapolis Minnesota. That is Minneapolis in the distance.
I think these may have been Pear Trees..the wind was blowing so hard that outside photos were impossible.
We saw this poor dog headed north..
In the rain..I guess Black Labs like water..I would never let Chance ride back there in a kennel like that.
Oh ya, Chance forgave me while I was away..he was real happy to see me return. Far Guy told Jen that I should leave and go with her more often..she then proceeded to tell him how noisy I was in the nighttime. He said “Yes, I know.”:)
