Friday was a day for catching up with a few things we needed to do around the house and starting to pack up.
In the morning, I cleaned up a lot of things in preparation for leaving and because we were expecting a short visit from our friend, Marcia from Java the Hut in the afternoon and I wanted things to look good. She had never seen the house and I wanted things to look nice. I got started packing up all of the food type things…things I had brought with the intention of doing a lot of cooking, but then with our lack of a truly functional fridge, I couldn’t use. Things got packed back into the reusable shopping bags that are so great to use when we travel out here.
In the afternoon, we drove down to Java to meet Marcia so that we could show her the way to the house (it’s a bit of a zig zag to get here). I took advantage of the opportunity to take a few photos around the shop to have memories of one of my favorite places.
This is Patches. She belongs to Marcia’s daughter in law, Ann and is the sweetest thing.
Ann, Me and Marcia. They are both such sweet ladies!
Here are a few shots of the beautiful flowers around Java the Hut and the Hub in general. A delightful man named Ward takes care of all of the flowers. He is a Silver City native.
Sadly, I forgot to take any photos of Marcia’s visit. She loved the house, and was fascinated by our view of Silver City from our deck. She thinks she can probably see us from her house which is across town. She said she was going to try when she got home. That’s one advantage of being so high up on a hill. It’s easy to see the house from several spots in the city!
That’s about it for now. I have some last-minute laundry to do. I’m mostly packed except for my toiletries. Now I get to help Ralph pack! Now there’s an adventure!
Happy Saturday! Trying to make the most of our last full day here!
