More from the Nation’s Capital
I’m standing in today for my dual personality, who is jet-setting to Maryland to visit her lovely daughter, so I thought I would share a few more pics from my own visit last weekend. On Saturday, son James and I met niece Susie and her beau, Nate, for lunch at Pizzeria Paradiso. It almost went off without a hitch, but I turned the wrong way Dupont Circle and walked what seemed like miles before I realized my mistake. Orienteering has never been my strong point. Suffice it to say that I arrived a little late but none the worse for wear (thanks to a call to son #2 who set me straight). Lunch was delicious and the company delightful!
And my insistence on photo-taking didn’t even embarrass the younguns. Congratulations to Susie for passing her exams with ease on the following Monday! Now she gets to do the fun part — the dissertation.
My visit was full of culinary delights. After a brief afternoon visit to the overcrowded Smithsonian Museum of Natural History with James, the DH and I went over to my son’s apartment for a delicious home-cooked meal of lamb meatloaf and seasoned veg. Yum!
It was was also nice to see my son’s digs and catch up with apartment-mate, a fellow Cantonite, Madeleine.
Don’t I look like a dutiful wife?. Anyhow, those are the highlights of my trip. The return journey was mercifully easy: temperatures rose and the windshield wiper fluid unfroze; the sun was out and there was only Sunday traffic.
I hope my dual personality travels safely and has a wonderful, wonderful time!
