Haven't posted for the past few days because we have fun visitors here from Boulder. Dave Jilk and his wife, Maureen, arrived Friday afternoon, which meant that Friday I cleaned all the small nooks and crannies and corners of kitchen and bathrooms with Clorox Wipes and ran both the upstairs and downstairs Roombas and put clean fluffy flannel sheets on the guest bed and bought and arranged fresh flowers and did all the things that I think are necessary to be ready for company.
Only on page 321 of Infinite Jest because I've been staying up late talking with Dave and Maureen and looking at maps of Alaska and deciding that time zones are strange and nonsensical. Dave and Maureen got up and out of the house this morning to take the water taxi across Kachemak Bay to do some hiking and glacier viewing in the park. Brad and I stayed in bed, which is really one of my favorite things to do on a Sunday morning. Going to go for a long walk on the Homer Spit (an ugly name for a beautiful spot) while Brad runs, and then probably take an afternoon nap before Dave and Maureen return. We're heading to Halibut Cove for dinner at The Saltry and are hoping that the sun will shine sometime today.
