...safe and sound after a loooooong trip, at least for K. It took her four hours to get to the Detroit airport on Monday because of the weather, arriving just in time to board the plane. Which then sat on the tarmac for two hours while the plane was de-iced. But she eventually made it to Florida where she met up with her hubby who'd gone down early for a conference, and they flew out of Miami around midnight. I hear she was asleep before that plane left the ground :-) After a four-hour layover in Santiago, they arrived in Cordoba this afternoon at 3:30 p.m.
We've already enjoyed sitting out back on the patio, some of K's special tea after dinner, and a good start with the on-going conversations that make our time with them so precious. Estoy muy contenta.
They're out for a little walk before bed, in the warm night air that's quite a change from the 20° howling winds of Michigan. I'm charging my Kindle (!) after putting away the goodies they brought. Besides transporting my Kindle they also generously brought the parts to fix the dryer, re-chargable batteries for Ivan's power tools (his one and only lithium battery had been fried when someone plugged the charger into a regular outlet instead of the transformer), a book I'd won from The Bobwhites, some much needed cotton undergarments, a couple of spices I couldn't find here, the last two issues of Southern Living magazine, zip locks in every size from snack to gallon, and probably some things I'm forgetting...and did I mention my Kindle?
Now I'm going to kick back with Southern Living.
Have I mentioned, estoy muy contenta.
