Honeymoon - Day 7

Day 7 – Monday, December 3, 2007

I wasn’t feeling very well again this morning – it was the lutefisk! Ha Ha but I slept in until way late; although the snow plow going up and down the street kept waking me up. We didn’t get to Alice’s until almost 12:30pm. The lunch of pork chops was delicious. Today was another highlight for me. After lunch we helped Richard make some pies for tomorrow. I never knew Robert was quite the little baker! He seemed like he really knew what he was doing in the kitchen. We made an apple pie with apples from Richard’s brother’s farm, a pecan pie, a pumpkin, and lemon meringue. We also helped wash the dishes. It was great!

We visited with Richard and his brother Jim until almost 4:30pm before heading back to Milbank. We stopped by the Pizza Ranch to get a pepperoni to go. It seems to be quite the social hot spot and everyone seemed to know everyone, except for us of course! Milbank is a nice town. I guess we are getting somewhat used to the cold. It was 10-degrees, but felt warmer. The sun was out again today, but it gets dark incredibly early. After getting pizza we spent an exciting night watching TV and doing a couple loads of laundry.

It’ll probably be an early night for us. Tomorrow we’re heading back to Alice’s for breakfast then onward to Denver to see Carrie, Jeremy, and their new house.
