Mom and I got up and moving fairly early this morning. The bad thing about the room is that the sink is next to her bed. Overall being quiet is difficult. I couldn’t drink coffee without making noise. The cellophane wrapper on the coffee cups, the coffee maker brewing, the bathroom fan, the lack of light. It all led to me being a noisy roommate. I tried. I tried to be quiet. I did. Maybe tonight I’ll have everything as ready to go as possible. By the way, this is a long post with a multitude of photos!
More views from our room:
My Aunt is the master of Rainbow Cookie making. I’ve made them before but they weren’t perfect. Most of the “wrongness” was the way they looked. They just came out sloppy looking. If I remember the flavor was right. My Aunt said she’d whip me up a batch! Over the past 2 days, Mom and I have stopped into 3 stores to get the almond paste needed. When we hit the jackpot, my mouth began to water with anticipation. My pants shrank. Why has my belt shrunk too?
Lunch at An-Annie’s first:
I dropped my Mom off. Andrea, Kevin and I set out to finish up their Christmas shopping.
When we got back, a full tray of Rainbow cookies was born! Yay! I’ll have some tonight.
Mom and I returned to the hotel so she could take a nap. First we strolled the Springmaid Beach Pier (as seen from our hotel room). It was pretty cold so we only walked 3/4 of it. That was enough.
Nap time is over. Back to my Aunt’s house for wine, French Onion Soup and Rainbow Cookies!

We had a great time! We leave tomorrow but we’ll have a few hours of visiting before we depart.
