Reunited And It Tastes So Good

strawberry-shortcakeEric and I have been apart for most of this ‘work-vacation.’ It started out with me dropping him off at his workshop in Connecticut for a couple days. Then, I picked him up and we spent the evening at my parents. The next day, he drove up north to stay with his mom and step-dad at night while he packed up his belongings at his old schoolhouse (yes, he still owns that old schoolhouse way up north!) during the day. Me? I stayed put at my parents where I was able to do some work and visit with my new nephew all week.

However, this evening, Eric drove down and picked me up and brought me back up to his parents where we are staying for the night. Yah, we’re finally reunited! But… when Eric is around, I love to eat. How do I know this? I have put on 17 pounds since we got married. And I love going to MomJo and Bruce’s house since they always have great food prepared.

I know soon I will have to do something about not eating so much. But for now, I’m going to enjoy this awesome homemade strawberry shortcake, courtesy of MomJo!

In the morning, Mr. Basketmaker is heading off to another workshop to teach and I’m staying back to work all day. Then, in the evening, we are heading to Maine to visit our close friends for the weekend who I’m sure will be feeding us lots of great food.
