This is definitely the busiest summer I can remember since I retired. Of course we've only been living in this house for a little over two years, and I have my first grandchild so things seem to be hopping all the time.
I am thrilled that my baby sister and brother-in-law are coming in for a visit. I can't wait. I only get to see her a couple of times a year and we always, always have a wonderful time. We'll be hitting all the antique and thrift shops we can find I'm sure.
They are taking the train, so by the time we pick them up they will have been on the train for about 12 hours. I can't imagine it. At any rate, I'm sure they will be hungry so I'm planning to feed them a tomato basil soup and garlic bread. Something light as it will be late, well, late for me (8:30 pm) by the time they get here.
Nothing fancy, another simple table.
Oh for cryin' out loud. Please ignore the cardbox with the toddler toys in the corner.
Second time this summer I've used this soup tureen. Funny, it was at the top of the cabinet for a couple of years.
