Well, the weather prognosticators were accurately far-sighted this time. It’s raining. A lot. Sandy has arrived, and like any unwelcome visitor didn’t even bring a bottle of wine, a babka (always a lovely dessert offering), flowers – nothing. It appears that she intends to stay for a few days too (my mother-in-law used to say that house guests were a lot like fish – both start to stink after three days). Given that Madame Sandra appeared uninvited and clearly in a snarky mood, I for one have no intention of making the guest room look extra lovely. Nope – as far as I’m concerned she need not unpack – I’ll even pay for her ticket back out to sea.
Sigh…I’m rarely so hostile to visitors. And such negativity so early in the morning! I must have some coffee, revert to my happier aspect. In the interim, hope this makes you smile. Fellow East Coast friends – wishing you warmth and safety and no lapses in power..
