On Tuesday morning I depart for Seattle, a very early morning flight that takes me through Miami, Cleveland, and finally home. I have cranberry sauce to make on Wednesday, and I have to buy six bottles of white wine. I also bring Met Market gravy. I used to make the gravy, but find that what Met Market produces is just fine and it saves me being at the stove at the last minute when Matt is trying to carve the turkey and others are trying to serve dishes they’ve brought and warmed in the oven.
David and Arline’s little girl Ghiselita, age six, is sending a small container of pink Slime as a gift for Archie and Else. Ghiselita played with her Slime before dinner was served on Sunday evening, and it kept her occupied. Apparently it’s the latest thing for that age set. I thought I had a pic of the Slime, but no. 🙂
Here is my despedida a Minga in the hotel lobby. That white thing under my arm is the bathrobe I shared with her. I got one with my suite; she and Lily were in a regular room and didn’t. Even without the air on, Minga was a bit cold and liked to wear the bathrobe in the room.
Tia Phyllis, note the new shoes you bought. Minga hasn’t had them off since our shopping trip on Saturday. They are really very soft leather, and are easy on her bunion. She loves them. 🙂
