I could hear my brother and his wife in the basement. I've got my basement set up like another whole house. There's a stove, frig, shower, bathroom, etc. They were down there having their morning coffee and talking. It really makes it nice to have a place like this. You can just sort of have your own time and it makes everything and everybody so much more comfortable. After awhile they took their dog out for a walk and then came on up and we had coffee together at the dining room table, then we had coffee on the deck and more coffee walking around the place, and talked about just everything for hours. This was such a carefree Saturday. No one had anything they had to do and we did just exactly what we wanted to do . . . which was kind of like NOTHING!!!
I fried up some bacon, sausage and scrambled eggs, diced some onion, red peppers, spinach and put out the cheese and flour tortillas, along with sour cream and salsa, of course!! I put some juice on the table and called them in and we made scrambled egg burritos for a mid-morning breakfast. Not bad, even if I say so myself.
We then went out and took another long walk, sat in the gazebo for awhile, played with the gnomes, fished a little and the guys did their best to get a mole out of our garden. He was pretty sneaky and was managing to escape them at every turn. The guys were tenacious and stood out there for what seemed like hours for they were determined that mole would build no more tunnels!!! Did they ever get him? Nope!!!
The chicken for supper was terrific but my brother was crazy about my creamed corn. After dinner I fixed coffee and pie and after we ate we all went outside and any of the plants that my sister-in-law wanted we dug up and put in a box for her to take home. My brother wanted horseradish so I dug enough for him, his kids and anybody else who'd take it!! I've got a LOT of horseradish so I was glad to share.
After that we went into the house and said our goodnights and they went downstairs to shower and pack everything up for their trip home.
"My . . . People Come and Go so Quickly!"
Can anyone tell me where that quote came from?
