Well, I’m home again.
The blogging weekend is over.
My reporting on it however, is not.
Which means this is going to be a blogging week! (There may be a small interruption as mom and I can apple pie filling on Wednesday. Because, as you know, I don’t have enough apple products preserved!)
Before I left today, the three of us met at a restaurant for breakfast. Lisa ordered organic Earl Grey tea.
Oh Tam. . .
Lisa and I had taken our cameras along hoping to get a picture of the three of us.
Mine didn’t have a timer, so Tam set Lisa’s on the back of the seat, rushed over to the bench and the three of us smushed together, big smiles on our faces which faltered when nothing happened.
Tam jumped up to try it again, bumping her head against the blinds in the window as she attempted to peer into the viewfinder to see if we would all be in the shot.
As it looked good, she set it again, ran back to the bench where more smushing and smiling ensued.
“Where’s the light? Did anyone see the red light?”
More head bumping, peering, smushing and smiling.
Still, nothing. . .
“Seriously, did anyone see a red light? There’s supposed to be a red light!”
A very lovely man from another both came over smiling and asked if we would like him to take our picture.
He took the camera, stood back and pressed the button. . .
“The red light! The red light is blinking!”
He smiled again and said “That’s alright, I’ll just stand here and hold the camera until it goes off.”
Ahhhh. . .
A beautiful prairie quilt, lying under a blue prairie sky.
It’s good to be home.
