We arrived around noon in Woodstock. It was so great to see Linda and Jim Mossman again after five months!!!
We have been enjoying staying in their son and daughter-in-law, Jeff and Laurie’s, yard next to the Mossman’s. Afternoon happy hours are in force with daily meals eaten out. Hot tub in the evenings. It has been fun eating at the favorite restaurants they have talked about so much. So we’ve had Dusty’s pizza and the chili dogs and chopped salad from Portillo’s.
Tomorrow we will either go to the Czech Plaza near Chicago or Warsaw Inn nearby. I am half Czech and half Polish. I haven’t had any authentic Czech or Polish food since I left home at 18 years old – yes, that’s 50 years ago. Jim doesn’t particularly like Slavic cuisine so I don’t cook it. Being so close to Chicago I’m going to take advantage of the abundance of Czech and Polish restaurants. I am so excited and anxious.
We’ll be here till Tuesday and Wednesday and then head to Campbellsville, Kentucky.
Remember, you are loved.
