Three of my sisters and my niece Camille are coming to see me tomorrow. What a lovely diversion this will be for me. I just want to sit in the comfort of my loved ones and chatter about nothing important.
Too many big decisions going on at my house right now. My husband has spent the past three days with his parents, and has been quite shocked at how child like and helpless they have become. We think that getting them into an assisted living situation as soon as possible is the best thing to do for all concerned.
My mother in law got through her surgery quite well. Thank you all for your thoughts and prayers. I know that must have had something to do with how well she did! She is now out of ICU and in a regular hospital room. In a week they will move her to a convalescent hospital. I hope that while she is there we can do everything to pack up their belongings and get them settled into an assisted care facility.
My sisters and I have been planning a little excursion down the coast for the past month or so. My sister Trish heard about an antiques festival that is being held near San Luis Obispo, and we all agreed that it would be the perfect weekend get away for us girls. We were thinking SLO was about an hour away from me, but it turns out it is two hours away. And the antique fair is in Nipomo, an additional half hour down the coast. Five hours in the car round trip? Hmmm. We have to talk.
We may ammend out plan somewhat and do something closer to home. We will have to take a vote on it. Meanwhile, my table is all set for dinner tomorrow night! Linguine and shrimp is the entree, along with baby greens with melty goat cheese on toasted baguettes for a salad. I haven't figured out dessert yet, but maybe a bakery can help me out!
Aren't those yellow wine glasses perfect with my dinnerware? Hand blown Italian glass, and I only have two of them. Ack. They sure look good. I will never be able to find more of them. I just put them in the picture because they are exactly right with the china. The china is Villeroy and Boch, a pattern called Audun Promendade. Nothing from Home Goods on this table. Only the best for my girls.
Thanks again for your wonderfully kind words and encouragement yesterday. I really appreciate it.
