The Anneke Chronicles

Captain’s Log    5,764

Anneke is here!  Anneke is here!  Did I say that Anneke is here?

Here’s a snap from our last visit.  I haven’t snapped anything yet for this adventure.

At first I thought Anneke was waving and then I realized she was hanging on for dear life!

She arrived a bit early which was nice.  We went home and got settled in.  After a light meal of soup and cornbread, she tucked into the guest room to sleep off her jet lag.  That was almost 12 hours ago.  If I don’t hear something soon, I am going in there to slip a mirror under her nose.

We don’t have much planned for today.  She needs to get some American money and buy a cell phone she can use to call her hub unit easily and cheaply.  Keeping it simple and easy.  Probably call it an early night again.  I really had issues with jet lag when I flew back from Amsterdam, and I only went as far as Chicago.  I can imagine how she feels.

I am planning an all-American breakfast this morning.  Eggs, home fries (cooked from real taters, not frozen), more cornbread with butter and honey, strong coffee, fresh mango, and juice.  That should keep us going until it’s time for coffee and cookies later in the day.  I love having company because I really DO enjoy cooking.  I don’t do complex things but they taste good.

She brought me chocolate!  And a cool book about Amsterdam!  And a collectible little bottle of booze (#92) from the plane!  YAY!  I love presents!  Especially excellent chocolate, book, and collectible Dutch house presents!  YAY!

I am so blessed to have such good people in my life!

I am also loving this morning without an agenda.  Holy momma that feels nice!
