I'm Here in Day by Day

I just don’t have time to do it all and PB is one of those casualties.

My sis-in-law and nephew are here for a few days until power is restored in Naples. We’re having these long discussions on family dynamics, mixed in with old memories, and laughter and acceptance of personality traits. That’s in between conversations about what foods we don’t like and what life is like in Vietnam (and Italy. And France. and the States).

Did I mention my sister in law is French and cooks fabulous meals? That she’s a better cook than me? Or that my nephew is rather droll and witty and they’re both a lot of fun to have around? I’m getting spoiled!

They’re thrilled to be staying somewhere with electricity and hot showers, so it’s a win/win. 65,000 people in my area without power.

I am writing out my thoughts on the storm and will post them soon.

Hope they can get electricity back on soon.

Naples was hit hard. Lots of flooding and property damage.

Fingers crossed they get power back soon. It sounds like some well needed time together though. :)

We're all enjoying it!

Sounds like you are living the proverbial saying with turning lemons into lemonade---continue enjoying the family time.

Yes, we're finding that we all really rather LIKE each other and my nephew, an only child, is desperate for connection to his recently deceased Dad (my brother).

Get your sis-in-law to cook extra so you can freeze some. Your family time sounds quite convivial........Something good to come out of Irma.

Oh, my gosh, Gypsy, you would not believe her talent! Tomorrow she is cooking a Vietnamese meal (she grew up there). I'm not sure I'm going to let her leave!

I like Happy Trails's "post Irma party." You're spending good quality time. Glad you're taking advantage of that even if it takes you away from PB.

It's quite a party! More on that after I'm done stepping through the experience. Good to hear from you!
