Reunion Week

This past week has been just wonderful. My dad came to visit me – he and his wife came up and I haven’t seen them since I for 23 years!  It’s been a lovely visit, and  I didn’t  get ANY workouts in and ate a lot, but for the most part it’s been a healthy menu.

It’s been wonderful. It’s been healing. It’s been magical.

All I have to share this week is all this love:

And we cooked!   My Daddy brought me my favorite Texas spice- Tex-Joy.   I see Tex-Joy has COFFEE and Zummo sausages now!  He also brought me some  boudain. I havne’t had Boudian for over 25 years, and it was just as awesome as I remember!    HE COOKED ME A GUMBO.  Oh, sweet baby Jesus, he cooked me a Gumbo and left me a recipe. I have some in the freezer for later. DSC_0074_11285

We listened to records, and played washerboards!

And we just sat and talked, and  LOVED.
