Is postponed! Yup. The weekend took an unexpected (wonderful) turn. DH and I had planned on taking the motorcycle and heading for South Padre Island on Saturday for the day. Time on the beach and late lunch at Dirty Al’s. All went as planned. We stopped in Port Isabel, to indulge in my fave “Chocolate Decadence” frappe, at the Causeway Café…….. before heading over the bridge (in the background) to the island. Yum!!! The day was breezy (always!) and temps were headed to the low 90s…..perfect!!!! Gale warnings had already been posted on the beach for Sunday’s forecast of 45+ mph winds, so a saunter on the beach was delightful….. (“Selfies” are NOT my ‘thing’!!!!!) To get to the point of this little story, this day was our 50th wedding anniversary(!!!!!!!!! Yes, you read that right!!!) and it was going to be quiet and relaxed. It was, until a somewhat mysterious text was received, telling us to be at a certain address in Brownsville(TX) at 7:30pm that eve, where we will be met by someone and it’s a surprise. Technology (and Google Maps) gave us the info that the address was the Brownsville airport and we quickly surmised that our “surprise” was going to be an unplanned (by us!) visit from our #2 son & DIL!!! So, after our yummy meal, we headed back to Harlingen, showered, grabbed the car and headed to the airport. The plane was on time and…………..well, we spent a wonderful Sunday together………. Words just aren’t adequate for how much this meant to us. As I’m writing this post, they are continuing their winter get-away and have boarded their 6:30am flight to Miami, where they will spend some time and sight-see in Key West. As DS informed us, they just couldn’t let this “monumental” occasion slip by without some type of party!!!!! Our hearts are full……………………………….
Now…..on to the week’s tasks……….
