I am so excited to meet Allison tonight! Sometimes I have trouble remembering that we have never actually met.
She'll pull into town tonight after three grueling days on the road, and she and her gentleman friend will spend a couple of days decompressing at our place before loading up the road snacks and continuing up to northern BC.
The house is reasonably clean and with a few touchups today will be suitable to receive house guests. The fridge is groaning with food, and I have made a mental note of those house idiosyncrasies that I need to point out. You know, the powder room door that doesn't close. the shower tap that has hot and cold mixed up, the sorts of things that you will discover on your own anyway, but are less startling if pointed out in advance.
Tomorrow is a holiday in this province, for reasons which I have never quite figured out, but I am not about to question anyone who wants to declare a holiday in February. I'll let those poor road-weary wanderers sleep in, while I get up (briefly) at 3:30 with the Spousal Unit to say bon voyage as he takes off for a "business trip" in Phoenix. Then, after a leisurely brunch, the Resident Offspring and I will squire them around to some of our favourite haunts. Maybe we'll find some much needed new road trip music at Hot Wax.
Safe journeys, Al!
