The main reason I had gone was to offer grandmotherly support to daughter Lindsay and her family as little Ellie had minor surgery to have ear tubes implanted. She has had so many inner ear infections over the last year, that the doc said tubes are what she needs.
Lindsay asked me if I thought it was possible that Ellie could be feeling different already. It certainly seemed to be the case.
When she giggles, I giggle. I can't help it. She's just too cute. And they are so much fun to watch together. Obviously, some day Jarrod will be a wonderful father.

Of course I had to try the cheese omelet platter. That is the measuring stick I use to compare all restaurant breakfasts, it seems. The meal was delicious, and although not the best cheese omelet I have ever had (I rate it a 9/10), it was very satisfying.
As I enjoyed my meal, I found myself trying to imagine what it must be like to cook for a large crew of people over a fire in a fireplace like the one near our table.
I'm always reminded to be thankful for how modern advances have made life so much easier for us now. Then I try to imagine ahead a hundred years, and my brain just doesn't seem to want to go there.
So it was a fully enjoyable and relaxing trip, Ellie's recovering nicely, and now I'm home, settled in, and looking forward to the next adventure. Life is good.
