Tally, our Friday morning server, who has become a dear friend, brought us a still warm from the oven blueberry coffee cake, compliments of the staff. It was delicious.
We all ordered our breakfasts, many of us saying "I'll have my usual", and then we had cake!
It was a sweet start to the day! At home, Tom and I went for our usual walk, and we puttered about, doing a few things that needed to get done. We packed what we would need for the weekend.
Then we joined our family for dinner at a local Chinese restaurant.
I had reserved a round table with a Lazy Susan. Everybody ordered their favorite dishes, and we turned the table to share and eat, and eat some more. Conversation was varied and lively.
We departed the restaurant with good wishes and we on our way,
Glorious color drew us on as we passed the Everett Boeing Plant.
I walked to the lighthouse as we waited for our ferry at the Mukilteo dock.
The sun was gone by the time we reached the cabin on Whidbey Island, but the party wasn't over. We went next door to Tom's cousin's cabin where they awaited us with more good wishes, and dessert!
It was a good day, filled with friends and family and love and sweet attention, and slow time and busy time. We felt properly celebrated, and we looked forward to a new day of fun in the morning.
