She’s quite the trooper – spent 2 years in Niger in the Peace Corps and then went back to school for nursing at Duke and just landed a job! She’s taking a trip to DC before it starts and stopped by to visit.
We took advantage of the sunshine once she arrived to take a walk over to UVA for a little tour
Zoom in to that number! It’s always SO exciting to see it featured!
Once home, we were greeted by a tiger
And then opened some wine to chillax
For dinner tonight, we had Karen and Faith and Tate over to meet Kirst and enjoy some delicious beany soup.
Made from a Frontier mix! We added tomatoes, kale and red wine to the mix
With plain yogurt, it was quite delicious!!
Karen brought a green salad, dressed in garlic gold vinaigrette
Faith brought over some doughy, crusty bread
I had a coupla glasses of wine – that left me laughing so hard that I couldn’t breathe hearing Karen talk about her Vaseline routine to keep her facial skin supple!
For dessert I broke out some dark chocolate paired with orange and apricots
And we all had a blast trying to tackle impossible challenges – like picking up a $20 bill on one foot with no arms.
FYI, Faith can do it but I have yet to tumble to the floor!
Too bad we didn’t have any saltines!
