Cabin Visit 2010 - Day 3
Slept well. Had muffins for breakfast. Today we are expecting our great friend Linda to visit for the afternoon and night. So, it is a cleaning day! Dusted, vacuumed, and generally spiffed the place up.
Lynne made a frozen chocolate pie for dessert.
Had grilled ham and cheese for lunch.
Linda arrived around 1:30 or so. It was great to see her. She and Lynne caught up on dog talk while I read. After a while we took the dogs for a short walk to the pond. Bella got in a short swim. The rest of the afternoon was spent catching up and gossiping.
I baked some potatoes for twice-baked potatoes for dinner.
It was hot again, and pretty windy.
Since we only come up here once a year, we tend to forget how well outfitted we are. When planning meals we wonder “do we have sesame seeds? Cumin? PAM spray? Garlic salt?” since we don’t know for sure we’ll buy some. And, of course, we get up here and find we already have 1 or 2 or 3 of everything we need. So, this year instead of shopping for a long period, we just shopped for a few days ad will take inventory before going into town to shop again.
For dinner we grilled steaks, had the potatoes and a simple salad.
