Met Hasty and her daughter outside the gate at Logan airport this afternoon, gave them each a hug like they were old friends, and Hasty told me I was gorgeous, so it was great all around. It is the hottest day of the year yet at 91 degrees and at least 75 % humidity. So after getting her baggage and leaving the airport, a spontaneous stop at Walden Pond was nice but a little rough. All of Hasty’s makeup melted off her face and I could feel sweat dripping down my back as I forced her to walk part way around the path to visit the original site of Thoreau’s cabin. This is after we visited the cabin replica and signed in the guest registry.
I was just reminded that I also took them on this semi-adventure when they had little sleep and we were all starving for lunch. Go figure, it was 2pm.
Anyway, we made it to the cabin site and here are Hasty and HastyKid on the hearth:
I took this pic of the pond before we left to head home:
When we arrived at my place we made sandwiches and salad and went to my own little pond. Then we visited my neighbor and the kitten she is fostering, which we will probably have joint custody of:
And now the kids are inside playing games while we’re sitting out blogging together. It’s cooled down and there’s a nice breeze. Oh and yeah, some more disclosure as I gradually expose more and more of myself, I have a son. I wasn’t going to mention it, but it seems he’s going to be a big part of this journey, especially since he made the sign for Hasty and HastyKid for when we met them at the airport. I think Hasty’s posting a picture of that.
I guess that’s all. I’m trying to get her drunk but she’s refusing to have more than one glass of wine. Nah, that’s not true. She only had one glass but I’d never purposely get her drunk. That would have to be her own choice.
So there you have it. More to come soon.
P.S. I blogged first Hasty ;)
