Manse…..the Buffy manse is full to overflowing with family this weekend. We are fortunate to have Dear Husband’s oldest son with us for a few days. His siblings have come to visit through out the past day or two, and they will all gather tomorrow to sail with Dear Husband and then have dinner here.
The manse needs to be baby-proofed, soon! Our granddaughter was here for the day, with her mommy. I need to get tot locks for the cabinets, and put the socket covers on. I noticed that a few things had been set up out of eyesight of a one year old. Everyone has taken a turn playing with the most beautiful of babies, giving her mum a little time off from baby chasing, and getting to enjoy the munchkin. She’s been playing peek-a-boo with me all day long, but won’t come to sit on my lap. It seems I look too much like her day care provider.
It’s been a week of international cuisine. Last night we went out for Mexican, the night before we went to one of those Mongolian Wok-style restaurants. Throw in some Italian, and a Midwestern home cooked meal, and we’ve traveled diet-wise, if not in reality.
It’s been nice to have the kids together. It doesn’t happen often enough these days. With all the children grown, and busy following their own life plans, it’s difficult to pull them all together for a day, let alone several. SO, we cherish the time we have and use the computer and phone to keep in touch. I hope that one day my grandson will see his way to join us.
