Today we said goodbye to Mary and Jordan, who had to leave for Chattanooga to spend time with Jordan’s family. It was said to watch them drive away, but at least they were able to stay for a whole week. It was so good to have them here.
My parents arrived with donuts before Mary and Jordan left, and Mary and I had the leftover GF hot cross buns. The holidays are winding down . . .
Meanwhile, Walter was out working before Mary and Jordan even woke up. Today was his day to lay wax on two different properties. It is a slow and tedious job, but at least he was able to come home and have lunch with us.
We made a good supper with no leftovers at all–pork chops, roasted Brussels sprouts, fried potatoes, salad, and mincemeat pie (my parents’ favorite). We’re back down to nine around the table now.
Tomorrow is our last day with my parents, so I hope we can make it enjoyable. The last week or so we’ve been so blessed with family. I love my family.
