We're home. We had a very nice visit with my family and a nice quick lunch with Erin's dad while we were back in our home state. The drive on Wednesday evening was less than desirable with heavy traffic and non stop drizzle that managed to severely decrease visibility and about two extra hours on top of our usual drive time; however, no blizzards, no accidents... it could have been worse.

We headed back on Saturday afternoon and had an easy drive home. I was a bit uncomfortable (as I had been on the way there as well), but since E did all of the driving, I was able to shift as necessary. Gladys was a trooper in the car, as always. We arrived home just in time to eat something and go to bed. (OK, it wasn't yet 8pm, but I was exhausted!!)

Yesterday was a fantastic day! We began with getting up early and cleaning the living room and taking Gladys for a walk. We then headed downtown for a fabulous brunch with 4 of our fabulous friends. After a scrumptious meal, we picked up Gladys and went out to the tree farm where we chopped down a Fraser fir for our living room. The rest of the day we spent decorating and eating goat cheese (pasteurized) and clementines. It was a wonderful way to end a long weekend!

Glad you had a great holiday!
Aren't those clementines great?....something about the citrus in the winter. Yum!

Mmmm...goat cheese.

I have goat's milk ice cream at home with my name all over it.
