When life gives you lemons, you make lemonade. And that's what we've been doing as our lemon tree is full of lemons. We also continue to give a lot to the neighbors.
It's finally October, the September love bugs are gone, the muhly grass has turned purple and it's only a month until our Mediterranean cruise. We have done all of the pre-cruise requirements with Viking and only have a couple of 'doctor' things to do.
Ian missed us and stayed to the south. It was a bit windy through the night and we got a couple of inches of rain but we got a good night's sleep and everything is good this morning.
After a week of dog-sitting I took Alesa to dinner at the Wolfgang Puck restaurant near Brownwood for a fine dining experience. Since it was a date we both dressed up a bit. It was a fun night out and Alesa had the best Pork Schnitzel ever.
We (Alesa) are watching the neighbor's dog while she visits family in New Hampshire. Ladybug came over on the 10th and will be going home on the 22nd.
The picture is a Google Map Timeline created from my phone's map activity of the places we stopped/stayed during our recent trip. We have been home for a week and a day and still haven't fully recovered. Just haven't readjusted to the heat and humidity.
Arrived home before 1 this afternoon. We unloaded and unpacked then went out for a nice dinner at the Havana country club. A little grocery shopping and we are home for a good rest. Tomorrow will be a good catch-up day.
Woke up this morning to a text and an email from Amtrak notifying us that our autotrain from Lorton to Sanford had been cancelled. Called to see what was up and there had been a bridge fire along the route and they did not know when they would be able to resume service.
Went to Elyse's apartment at 10 this morning. After many hugs and a short visit we headed off to the Nittany Mall only to find that it didn’t open until noon on Sundays. We went in but didn’t want to wait so we headed back into town to Elyse’s favorite coffee shop, Elixir.
Left Grove City on I-80 and took a detour through the Pennsylvania mountains up to Johnsonburg and St Mary's Pennsylvania. My mother's parents were from St. Mary's and we visited relatives in Johnsonburg when I was a child. We arrived in State College at 1 and checked into our room.
