It's nearly 2 a.m. and for some reason (translation: it's taken me until now to figure out how to smash everything I brought and all my new purchases into my luggage in such a manner that the zippers actually function) I'm still awake. I don't have the time or the energy to do justice to our fabulous 24 hours in Bainbridge with Sandy, who was at her parents' for her birthday, eating pureed green beans and cream of wheat like a champ after having her wisdom teeth removed on Friday. Suffice it to say that not much could have been better than getting pampered and fed incredible meals in quite possibly the loveliest house with the prettiest gardens in the greater Seattle area. Sunday's highlights included giant grilled salmon feast, painfully good chocolate mousse, two episodes of "The Gilmore Girls," and seeing a blue heron rookery in the woods. Today Sandy's lovely mother made us another giant feast, this time of the omelet and hash brown variety, and we played this excellent game, which included such gems as West Germany and the USSR.
And now we're at Richard's house and we should be asleep and we're taking the ferry at 6:00 pm tomorrow and I'm moving to Alaska for four months and that's wacky. I think I need my bed now. More from me this weekend!!!!! Love, K
