I have company!! One of my Misfit critique partnersJen Tiszai is here visiting with her kids! They’ve never seen snow and luckily, our property is so wooded that there was still enough for the kids to enjoy!
Friday afternoon, Zane and I picked them up at the Gary Airport, which was really nice. I don’t really like going to the big airports if I don’t have to. We headed straight for the nearest MickeyD’s playplace, the kids really needed to run! Jen and I, of course, talked. Which I don’t think we’ve stopped doing since she got here.
Then to Starbucks. (Did ya really think we’d pass that up?)
Then to my house. Phil came home from work bearing gifts for all. A bouquet of flowers for Jen and Sissy, a brand-spanking new light saber for Calvin, a single rose for me, and two Star Wars Galatic Hereos for Zane.
So, we’ve lived in this house going on four years and my box with wine glasses is still not unpacked. I drink out of this dusty pink colored one sent to me “free” by Harlequin. Well. They said I could keep the glass, so I did. However that presented a challenge when trying to serve my guest the house wine–y’know the box wine you guys make fun of me for drinking? Seems I have an ally now. The packaging process gives this wine a flavor that is truly delicious. Even Jen, the wine snob, said so.
See Jen’s blog for Calvin’s “shoes are optional” photo. He gets along with Phil, who also goes into the snow barefooted. Must be a man thing.
Jen wanted to see all of our property, so we went for a walk. Calvin found a “dinosaur bone” It appeared to be a piece of spinal cord from an *ahem* extinct creature. Calvin, efficient child that he is, promptly made it into a snow cone. Uhm. Yes. We looked over and caught him scooping snow up with the bone and eating it out of his treasure.
