My grandmother loved to say 'haste makes waste' and on Friday that was truth! I am relaxed and calm and I quickly solved a tiny issue with my photos, easy peasy. So maybe I need to slow down and take my time.. Maybe. (Gram stole that saying from Ben Franklin)
My grandmother also loved to say 'a watched pot never boils' ( again she lifted that from Franklin as well). Every time I make a cup of tea, the pot boils way faster when I am not standing there waiting for it. Go figure!
Look at that Holly lying in front of the sliding door acting like a true lioness. Yes, Frodo is under his ottoman and yes, he is leaving her alone. Shall we say that there is progress? Yes. But it's not fast enough for me! There are still some crazy chases going on around here.
So Friday started frazzled as I said in my last post, but then the events became even crazier. You see, my son was at a conference for the week in Banff, Alberta. My husband was at a conference in Edmonton, Alberta mid week. Both of them were scheduled to have a layover in Toronto on Friday evening. I thought it would be grand if they could see each other while waiting.
My son's flight was delayed 1 1/2 hours coming into Toronto on Friday evening and his connecting flight to Harrisburg was cancelled due to high winds. My husband's outgoing flight from Toronto to Philadelphia was delayed over 3 hours. So not only did they see each other, my husband managed to help my son get a seat on his Philadelphia bound plane (completely stressful and chaotic). There were tons of displaced angry travelers. I was NOT traveling and I was stressed out.
My husband was supposed to be home around 10 p.m. They arrived home at 2 a.m. all due to the extensive plane delay. Phew! Not many planes were leaving Toronto going East.
I had a great impromptu visit with our son on Saturday, we went shopping and had a home cooked meal yesterday together. Earlier this week, we were all going through our phones looking for photos of him for his Harvard internship. Shamefully I had nothing current, all I have is Holly and Frodo photos (the new kids on the block). I'm determined to take more 'people' photos.
This morning we drove him to the Harrisburg airport so he could retrieve his car and return to State College.
I am exhausted. But guess what? My sister's sweater is off the needles and is drying :)
How was your weekend?
