Adventures never cease around here!
Remember last month when our Texas pilot friend, Erich, dropped in unexpectedly? Well, yesterday he dropped in again...this time flying in from Ohio for a plane repair and bringing his co-pilot, Kyle, with him. They fly the planes, and Jonathan works on them.
Erich and Kyle arrived early in the afternoon and hung out with us...doing some computer work to pass the time and watching the goings-on around the house while they waited for work to be done on their plane.
Erich is my long-time Scrabble buddy. Ooh, I wish we had taken a picture of us sitting around the table playing on my ancient Scrabble board...Erich from Texas, Kyle originally from Kansas but now living in Ohio, playing Scrabble with Deb in Virginia...when does this ever happen on a Wednesday afternoon? So out of the blue...it was so much fun!
Meanwhile, Hannah was in the kitchen making a double batch of ambrosia soap and put Erich to work after our game! Here's Erich pouring in the goat's milk and Hannah blending the mixture:And here's Hannah finishing up and pouring the liquid into the molds:
Having a stocked hospitality pantry sure worked out for our supper tonight! We thawed some frozen meatballs for hoagies that we had put in the freezer this summer, and Sarah thawed an apple pie that was leftover from market...add some veggies and dip and chips, and we were all set to serve our friends.
Towards the end of the evening, Erich received word that their plane wouldn't be ready for another day. So plans were made that he and Kyle would return the next morning and help Granny make some basket handles and Granny in turn would teach Erich how to make a basket...
Stay tuned for Part 2.
