Two Days

Indio, California:  While DT is home for a few days, I have a big project I need to finish and thought this would be the perfect time. No need to do anything except run, ship orders and work at my desk. Didn't happen. A mini-family reunion happened instead. Yesterday, Dad and Mary decided to drive from Yuma to visit his sister who was in Palm Springs for a few days... and me... which meant I spent the day with family and didn't get much accomplished at all - but it really doesn't matter when you get to see family so far from home. Dad looks fantastic! (We will be heading over to Yuma to visit them in a few weeks.) After Dad and Mary left to return to Yuma, his sister and her husband (my aunt & uncle) took me to dinner in Old Town La Quinta. We talked for hours. I am caught-up with their kids and grandkids. My Driver did not have a very relaxing Tuesday. The Willamette Valley (in Oregon) was having a wicked snow storm. DT left our house in Portland at six o'clock in the morning and drove to Eugene in a blizzard. Thankfully, he was in his very sturdy (and very old) Chevy Tahoe. It snowed on/off all day in Eugene and DT returned to Portland last night to a winter wonderland. So this morning, I really went to work. I put a pot of Chianti Beef in the oven, went for a run and started working on my computer project.our little dishwasher already today.

At five o'clock I noticed the nightly boat parade start - my signal the day was coming to an end. I closed my laptop and decided to relax a bit... by baking a loaf of garlicky-herby bread to go with the Chianti Beef tomorrow night.

Until my next update from Los Angeles, I remain, your busy correspondent.
