But back to the Huntingtons: I was so flattered that they wanted to stop by, and I tried my best to not be geezerish. They just make me want to appear vital and active - like I'm training for a marathon or learning to skydive. The first time I met Nichole, she was making dinner, and she (without batting an eye) just included me in the dinner. So nice, and it was so delicious. I was frantically thinking today what I could cook for them, but they had other plans, so after a short, but very nice visit (during which they invited us to Utah for outdoorish canyon things at least three times) they were off with Scott - lured by the promise of something exciting towards Los Angeles.
I am vowing here and now to always have something nice at the ready in the freezer for just such an unexpected occasion. I'm embarrassed to say that had they taken me up on my offer of food, it would have been no more than a smoothie or perhaps a Cutie (Trader Joe's soy ice cream sandwiches. Delicious, but very small.)
Seeing them was a good surprise, and I'm so happy they wanted to stop by. Scott had some good times in their house, and hopefully he's made some lifelong friends. On his graduation day, they put together a lovely BBQ at their house for all sorts of people. Oh my - now that's twice they've fed me... I really do owe them a good dinner, don't I? I'm posting their picture here, but I wasn't even on the ball enough to get a picture of them while they were here. I ripped it off of Nichole's blog. Preparedness needs to be my motto from now on. Really.
