Sunday: We got up late to lazily watch CBS Sunday Morning and read the paper. Only when we got upstairs and I posted a paragraph to my blog did G discover that the Closing Meeting was almost upon us. Since it is a LA centric conference, they close early so everyone can drive home. With a great rush, we made it in time and I stayed awake. As I was photographing the small winter roses, we had a chance to say good bye to the delightful couple we had shared a dinner table with. Later still, after a lazy afternoon and simple dinner, we met friends at our usual meeting to laugh and learn from the wonderful D.
Today it’s back to life as usual. My turn to call Bee. Then grocery planning, shopping, hiding from the 89 degree heat here at the beach in darkened rooms, and downloading books to take with us on the flight in case we get stuck on the tarmac or airport as G did last trip. I’m reading my third book on the Capital and lining up friends to meet during our eleven days in DC. I’m beyond excited.
