On Thursday evening my two younger sisters K and T came to visit me and stayed for a few days making it a memorable weekend.They arrived in time for dinner. I set a small table in my very small living room with a small table cloth, four wine glasses, four tiny plates, cocktail napkins, cocktail forks, etc., and a tray of Hors d’ oeuvres of Gouda cheese and water crackers served with green seedless grapes , marmalade and wild blackberry jam. While they nibbled and chatted and enjoyed some wine I finished up the simple dinner, still talking and listening to them from the kitchen.
A simple dinner of Spaghetti, Marinara sauce with artichokes, red peppers, sauteed sliced mushrooms and and topped with freshly shredded Mozzarella Cheese. Garnish the spaghetti with black olives and marinated green olives stuffed with pimentos
Friday: Sitting at the kitchen table in our pajamas, drinking tea and munching on toast smothered in butter and marmalade talking about everything and anything. Afterwards, dressed in our raincoats we headed out for a long walk in the woods. In the woods we were sheltered by the tall trees from the rain, just occasionally some mist on our faces. Gentle breezes rustled through the deciduous trees bringing showers of leaves to the ground. In the evening we all got dolled up and went to a local Japanese restaurant for dinner. In the Hibachi dining room where chefs prepare spectacular displays of food on the grill amid flames shooting upwards to the ceiling and juggling spatulas and food being directed into the diner’s mouths lots of laughter, oohs and aahs, we enjoyed a lovely meal.
Saturday: Antiquing for couple of hours, walking through the entire mall.
Sunday: Blueberry pancakes for breakfast followed by another long walk in the park. In the afternoon another leisurely trip to the mall to do a little shopping for bed linen and a work outfit. At 4pm my daughter wanted to show us her venue for her upcoming wedding on the grounds of a historic mansion. Another two hours of leisurely walking and enjoying the mansion and the grounds.
For dinner we ate at a local Chinese restaurant. Outside the restaurant we were astonished to see this decorated horse.
Chicken and Pork, $7.25, Lobster cost $10.25. $3.00 to the cancer society.
Monday: Porridge for breakfast, packed up and ready to go home. Noon lunch at the Chinese restaurant, 3 more plates of chicken and lobster tacos. Three more dollars going to the breast cancer research. We arrived at the Airport at 2pm for their flight home. Both of them expected on the job next morning.
Sisters are gifts which you will enjoy forever. Together we laughed, we talked, we walked, we ate, we sang, we cried, we remembered. To my sisters; Thank you for your visit, you are the best, I love you forever!
