Sea sun and sand

I miss it. Want to go back. Autumn is pretty and all this is prettier. And salt water is the best cure for almost anything I betcha.

Catching up

Dinner was great. I didnt go for the take away I kinda fancied instead we had roast butternut squash (tossed in olive oil, salt, pepper chili flakes), boneless pork chop and green tomato salad. Mmm.... The red wine the Parents left behind went very well with this dinner. Happy its Friday. While I love having guests I love having time to do absolutely nothing.

Spent 35 min at the post office today. US Postal service is nowhere near as nice as Royal Mail but on a positive they open at 8 and are next to work. I saw enough to understand why the staff are a bit grumpy, people are quite stupid. I was nice and polite though and filled out all forms and taped boxes shut.

There were two boys who were in with their dad and they were eyeing my stack of parcels with interest, another reason to send more letters and packages, inside we are all still 5 years old.

October is starting off great:

Friday: G visiting NY on her way to Mexico so we had time for some sightseeing and dinner. Her 13 year old nephew taught me a new 'Swede' story. Very sweet.
Saturday: Pumpkin picking and carving! Love the orange.
Sunday: C and boyfriend is in NY so we are meeting for drinks and a show.

Its a good thing I have to work Mon-Fri so I get some time to relax. No more guests for the remainder of Oct but P is coming in early Dec - all confirmed!
