Rosie and Harry Come To Visit




Everything is ready. Lemon cake and the tart, lemon sauce are made. The bed linens are crisp and lightly scented. The pantry and fridge are bulging with good things to eat. Everything is polished and in order. Tomorrow Rosie and her Harry arrive and the fun begins. We have things to show and stories to tell, but Rosie and I just really want to sit in the garden and talk, talk, talk. 

*************************************************

We are now approaching the final days of Harry and Rosie's visit. Oh, what a good time we have had. The weather remains gorgeous and now much cooler. We have taken them to see the sites of our neck of the woods and their response is always enthusiastic. Good car conversations, lots of laughing and enjoying of Rosie's fun gift to delicious jelly baby candies. 

Because Rosie and I are Beach Sisters, we do know one another well. We have eaten breakfast together many times. However, I did learn something new. This girl loves bacon, crisp bacon. Jack always cooks center cut bacon and Rosie is pleased when he places the bacon right next to her plate. Even from our Beach Sister days, I never knew her fondness for crisp bacon!

  1. That's because she always had eggs Benedict or pancakes! Although she was surprised to see pancakes for breakfast. I'm so glad you had a good visit!

  9. Mere, I’m sorry to take such a long time to respond but there was little time for Blogland when we were together! Harry and I very much enjoyed our visit with you and Jack; the time flew away all too quickly. Thank you both for the wonderful warm welcome - and Jack for all the crispy bacon!
    Much love, Rosie and Harry
