In order to get through the days activities a hearty breakfast is required. DOR and SILOR made us breakfast every morning. We had breakfast burritos one morning and Swedish pancakes several times - I kept requesting them. They were served with butter, powdered sugar, and lingonberries.
But, there was drama during the making of breakfast. I casually asked DOR if she really wanted a burner as hot as she had it. That’s when she called me a control freak and banned me from the kitchen. Evidently, she did. Breakfast came out great.
We played pool several times. SILOR and I got in a few warm up games before inviting Char and DOR to join us. It was DOR and SILOR against Char and I. Char and I won (I think).
We also went bowling a number of times. DOR and SILOR have joined a league and have been getting in more practice than Char and I. Up until their visit, I could count on one hand the number of times I’ve been bowling. To my credit, I did all right. I only threw the ball backwards towards everyone once.
Char has better form and style than I do, but it’s been years since she bowled. Even with that extended absence, she did well. There was even talk about buying our own bowling shoes and joining a league. We’ll see how that plays out. We may have to go a time or two more before making the investment.
SILOR and I played a couple rounds of golf while DOR and Char had a movie day. As much as it pains me to say it, SILOR did beat me – by one stroke. I was happy being able to play and pleased with my game mainly because I haven’t played since last August.
Then early one morning, I took them to the airport and they headed back home. It was fun to see them and to spend a few days playing with them but. . . . . they really tuckered me out.
Thanks for the visit.
