We drove down to Sandy’s parents’ home today for “lunch” which turned out to be a full dinner. Her dad’s sister was visiting from Puerto Rico, and many of the foods they have been serving this past week are the things they ate back in Portugal. I love the cooking too and enjoyed every bit of it – oh so many dishes, vegetables and meats, and then followed up with several desserts. I always love the espresso with a drop of sambucca at the end of the meal. Sandy’s aunt has traveled and lived all over the world as a military wife, and now her daughter has been with the government in numerous parts of the world. As a traveler, although not nearly so well traveled as they are, I loved hearing the stories of the countries they’ve been in. It’s too bad I won’t fly any more because there are so many places I didn’t get to. I am very happy seeing more of the U.S. the past few years though.
It has rained steadily all day, is forecast to continue for the next week, and the temperature has dropped at least 20 degrees. I’m glad my daughter-in-law was driving.
We talked to my son earlier today via Skype. Sandy showed me how to add him to my list of contacts. I have several people on my list, but only two actually can connect. I don’t know the first thing about it, nor do I understand how to fix the contacts that need fixing.
I’m going to bed early tonight. I ate so much today I will actually waddle towards my bedroom!
