Driving home today was like a dream. I haven’t come in from that direction in TEN YEARS.
I passed Hurdle Mills Road. Carr Store Road. Walnut Grove Church Road.
I had friends who lived at the end of every dirt road in the county!
Finally, I was home. Small town to small town, Virginia country roads in between.
Home Sweet Home!
The Bears were busy reading a novel when I arrived
And sweet Billis was taking a nap
Mom wanted to feed me one of her favorite lunches – a sandwich with Cucumber, Tomato and Cream Cheese (and I added a little mustard!)
Plus strawberries with rice pudding!
And a Diet Birch Beer
‘Twas pretty tasty!
And it wouldn’t be mom without mid-afternoon hot tea! Prepared with sugar and milk.
I spent the afternoon studying RD flashcards before this busy two weeks starts
Don’t Know on the left, Know on the right
Upon visting my childhood bedroom, I discovered a box of Biscoff that arrived here for me during our move when I used my home address for shipping. SO HAPPY to see Biscoff!!
Had two cookies for a snack!
The Original Three went out for dinner!
To my very favorite restaurant of all times: Brixx
Mom and I shared a beer
And then we got a Hop Devil because of the Blue Devils and because beers were on special!
Dad got the Bruschetta and shared
I got a famous Brixx Spinach Salad
And we all shared two pizzas – 4 flavors
Greek, Spicy Shrimp
Artichoke, Quattro Fromaggio
I had a slice of each flavor
You have no idea how excited I was to see Duke Blue Skies 🙂
Might have a slice of watermelon and/or go for a walk with Dad. Early morning tomorrow!
