The dogs, cat, guineas and I have been coping on our own for 5 days. John hopped on a seat sale and went to visit his new granddaughter (as well as her mom, our SIL, and Sir J). This may seem like a minor thing to some people, but this is the first time in 3 years or so that we've been apart for more than one night. For two people that generally spend 24 hours a day together, it's been a little different for the past 5 days.
No one to pour me coffee. No one to make me lunch. No one to pour me a glass of wine. No one to cook me supper. And no one to build me a fire. I didn't fare too well on the meal side of things, but I did manage to get a fire going every night.My fire building skills were enjoyed by others as well... I can't vouch for the cat or the dogs, but I can say that despite the fact that I can manage to get a fire lit without burning the house down, I am glad to get our man back home today!
We won't be getting any trick or treaters out here in the boonies, but hope everyone has a Happy Hallowe'en! I know we will.
