Come and Gone

Our daughter flew in from Maryland Friday night, 2 hours late, bless her heart for putting up with flying through Atlanta to come and see us.  It was a hot, beautiful weekend that went too fast.  She left last night and was more than 2 hours late getting home, good old Atlanta again.
Saturday, we talked, ate fresh Georgia shrimp and barbqued ribs and for her birthday I made her a Key Lime Pie that turned out delicious, I had never made one before.
Saturday afternoon I tried to entice her into the pool, but she said absolutely not, she'd stay in the shade.
We watched a Netflix Saturday night,  The Young Victoria, is was quite good, I always try and have a movie that I don't think she'd get for herself, but that I think she'll enjoy and Young Victoria definitely fit the bill.
Sunday we went down to Savannah for brunch, it was very crowded, full of tourists and we had to search for a parking place..  We went to Huey's to eat, it's one of our favorite places.  Sadly the food was just so-so, but after eating we went and had gelato, Bailey's Irish Creme gelato which was heavenly.
All too soon it was time for her to fly home, each visit just reminds us how much we miss her.  When we retired we moved back here to the east coast to be closer to her, I wish we were even closer but I just can't deal with the cold winters she has up there.  So we'll just keep on using up Frequent Flyer Miles and seeing her as often as we can.


  1. I'm glad you had fun....can't wait until it's my turn!!

  2. So glad you and your daughter had a lovely birthday weekend. My daughter lives nearby happily but I'm familiar with fleeting visits as my sons live in Suffolk, about three and a half hours by car and in South Africa about 14 hours by plane!

  3. She's our only child and a part of my heart leaves each time she goes.


A Bit of a Milestone

Friday I went to the commissary with Mac to grocery shop and I managed to get all of it done without having to sit down and rest.  That ma...
