Two Surprises

I promised you one surprise, but of course, that meant that I knew what it would be. Turned out I had a surprise too. The Consumers Energy truck appeared in my driveway before 8 am. Someone had hit the power pole, and they were going to have to replace it. We wouldn't have electricity at least for the rest of the morning.

So, I had to figure out what I could do instead of my usual morning computer work. I was glad that they had it all done by 12:30.

But the fun surprise is someone showed up today who is going to stay for a week. It's... Loretta! She decided to come on the spur of the moment, so we have no big special plans, but hopefully we can fit in a couple of interesting things. There's a trail club thing on Saturday, and who knows what else we may figure out.

The second surprise I'm sure is a very pleasant one. Unlike the first one; and yet, it's sub-surprise was that it didn't take them until tomorrow to finish. And that, too, is pleasant!

Well, I know how nice it is to have company. I can't believe how fast my visit with Meaux is going. We're almost at the end of her two week stay with me ( she leaves on Wed ) and we haven't done nearly half the things we've planned ( except we have gotten in a lot of the eating! ). It's been so wonderful, though.
