short note

I am away visiting the nation's capitol, the state of maryland's capitol, and now, my hometown, a little further north. At the moment I'm waiting for two carloads of my kids' cousins. Some haven't seen each other in two years. My sister is bringing her garden fresh bounty: corn on the cob, tomatoes, lima beans, and cantalope. Plus my sister in law is baking brownies. An elderly neighbor has generously volunteered her swimming pool. She has no idea what she is getting herself into.
I currently owe my internet connection to the fine technology of a state of the art toshiba laptop plus dial up modem. V.....e.....r......r......y.........S.....l......o........w. I'm wanting to check in on my favorite blog sites but it seems to average five minutes per round trip. So I'm giving notice that I will not be stopping by as often as I'd like. Instead I'll just have to make due with the some of the best company I can ask for while munching on some of the best produce the garden state has to offer.

Have too much fun. And eat an ear of fresh corn for me--yum!

Mama P said...

That sounds divine. Something about family trips is so eternal. It makes me miss my dad and those trips to Boston to visit cousins.

Stacie said...

mmm..mmm...All that fresh food and good times almost makes dial up worth it! Have a blast!

alison - thanks! definately following your advice : )

jenn - the corn is unbelievably sweet. yummmm.

mama p - eternal is a good way to describe it. I often wish the trips were eternal IRL.

stacie - almost, yes... almost

ann - first we had two types of brownies made by my cousin, from scratch.... and then my sis-in-law made some that were to die for ... brownies are heavenly, no doubt
