Everyone was here, the house was full, rooms full, beds full, laughter, talk, baby talk, young man talk, parental talk, family mother children talk.
All sorts of food .. veggies, sweets, baby delicacies and even something for a kitten.
Bedrooms overflowing, beds everywhere !
Small beings were introduced to New England cold and snow and trees laden with several inches of snow. Birds were included, full feeders and the chipmunks got their pistachios.
Stuffing without a turkey worked !
The first apple pie baked by this baker in over 10 years ... is delicious.
It might become a favorite breakfast, for all I know.
Yesterday .. the baby and his mama and daddy went home.
There was a big gap in the house ... the rooms were a bit more quiet, the little sounds and smiles and sweetness was missing.
Today with a flurry of cooking , eating, laughing , packing , chatting and hugging, the last of the visitors were gone !
Minnette keeps looking out the window ... where the heck did they all go ???
I keep thinking about doing laundry or maybe just take a long shower and read ...
but it is difficult ..
The house is too quiet.
The house is too empty.
Minnette went to take her nap. She muttered something about being bored.
I guess I might go join her in that nap.
