Today was the first day that Jason and I and the girls were all together for over a month. We have missed each other so much… And even though it was necessary to be apart, it feels so much better to be together.
Jason is home for the long weekend. He is currently locuming in Nelson, but we have three days together to enjoy. Today we went to the Rutland May Day celebration and spent too much money at the fair.
The girls are such thrillseekers. Neither Jason nor I are like that! So we bought tickets and I chewed my nails on the side hoping desperately that they would not fall out of the ancient contraption they call a fair ride.
Also the requisite facepainting… The lady does do such a good job.
Full of pancake breakfast and samosas [made by local Ethiopian woman] and cinnamon minidonuts, we went home, and had a nap. Jason enjoyed his first home-cooked meal in a month. I think he was pretty grateful for the chicken pecan dandelion green crepes!
Two more days of family togetherness…
