Instead of one day away from the shop I have decided that I should have two. Today I plan on spending my time puttering around, doing a little cleaning maybe some cooking, because the In-Laws are coming.
We don't have a time for the arrival. They have been in Ontario, I think they went on a cruise on the lake. Who knew? Anyway the cruise ended last night and they will be stopping here on the way back to Boston.
This is a good thing. I love them both.
Fran's mom is a nutritionist and food historian. We always have tons to talk about, like The Omnivore's Dilemma, my current bedside reading. Or we might discuss recipes or her lastest food tour, or the current topics at The Culinary Historians of Boston.
Fran's dad is a semi-retired physics professor, he'll get a kick out of the knitted mobius strip ( yes, I made one) and the knitted structures based on the fibonacci series. Plus, I still have Limoncello that I made (remember July 4th?), he'll have a bit of that I'm sure.
So I'm looking forward to the day away from pressure I've been feeling at the shop (mostly from the nutty landlady). A relaxing summer day with a good meal this evening, aaah summer.
[AmpuTee, your dream about the newspaper work on the patterned wall paper is one of the directions I think that the things might go. thanks for the input.]
