I am sitting here in my kitchen waiting for my daughter and her family to arrive from San Diego.
A cold front is coming thru, but a nice fire is laid and ready to light.
The maple trees are heavy with bright gold leaves that are fluttering down in large numbers.
We are changing the sleeping arrangements a bit this year.
Our daughter and her husband will be in our room, the two grandsons will sleep in one of the guest rooms and the Au Pair will be in the other.
Craig and I will be in the Alfa.
Our house just got one room bigger!
The feasting will begin tonight with homemade pizza.
