On Saturday Cranky arrived safely from Philadelphia, laden with wonderful gifts of alcohol and avocados and, after leaving her stuff in the spare room, we headed off to the National Museum of the American Indian. These were the only photos I took over the weekend and you will notice that we are not in them… the interior of the museum is very impressive though. There were some interesting looking exhibits but quite honestly we spent our couple of hours there wandering about chatting and flitting past things. This was my first visit to the museum and obviously now I’m going to have to go back and pay attention. Luckily I have an excuse in a couple of weeks time when an Aussie friend comes to stay – then I’ll tell Cranky about all the things she missed! 🙂
We were not long home from the museum before the manservant was presenting us with Mint Juleps and we were welcoming Gingersister in time to watch the Kentucky Derby before we engaged in hours & hours of eating, drinking & laughing. Gingersister, who is currently living in DC, gave Cranky and I each an adorable magnet made from paper in its own little packaging. Made by her own very talented hands, I think it’s too pretty to put on my fridge.
Later that night as I was drifting off to sleep I glanced at the clock – 1am! It crossed my mind that as I am not as young as our guests, by at least 10 years, I was not likely to be bouncing up in the morning. So after a sluggish start on Sunday we took Cranky off to brunch at a place not too far a walk from home – actually she took us to brunch – thank you Cranky!
After she left for Philly I enjoyed 40 winks on the couch while musing on how much fun it is to have real-life visits from on-line friends.
