3 o’clock in the morning, it’s quiet and there’s no one around

We just saw my in-laws off, back to New Jersey. It was a fabulous weekend with far too much food, including last night’s clam chowder and salmon with “Asian glaze” (soy, hoisin, brown sugar, ginger, hot pepper) followed by homemade pie (lemon meringue). Now that they’re on the road the house is quiet, and will be eerily so once Lisa takes off for the first of three less-than-24-hour business trips this week.

On the positive side my Mom should be back from her pilgrimage to Guatemala by now, so I can catch up with her.

Otherwise, not a lot to say. I’m kind of enjoying the silence.
