D and the Princess and the Gingerbread Cookie left yesterday, so after the last two+ months of continual, relentless little girl chitter-chatter, today has been unusually quiet.
D reports that it is snowing in Kansas today; M reports mist in New York. Here has nothing so wondrous to offer: It's a bit windy, though far short of blustery. But still, it's unmistakably fall. I hope that it mists and rains and snows in Heaven. That alone would make it worth going ;-) Well, almost. Any way it would be a definite plus.
I spent a good bit of the day just sorta catching up. Changing sheets, doing laundry, picking up, doing errands, answering the phone.
I packed up some goodies and mailed a package to M. He costs me way more at West Point than he ever did at home. But he's way worth it ;-)
Tonight we are back in "dinner at the old folks' home" mode. Small pans, small plates, small portions.
After dinner I am making a chicken pot pie to take to the Pie Party tomorrow night, followed by solo kitchen duty and laundry folding. Alas, now that D is gone, the work is all mine. Mine alone.
