What fun!

My friend and former colleague (and the last few years we taught next door to each other) drove all the way here by herself for a visit. We had such low-key fun. We talked nonstop for days, ate too much, took long walks, commiserated and exalted. It means so much to me that she loves my condo.

She left this morning. I went on a walk, ate (too many) leftovers, and am now washing sheets and towels.

I can’t tell you how happy I am she came—and now I’m enjoying peace and quiet. Retirement is the best.

(I always buy way too much food when guests come. This time I wasn’t sure how long she was staying, so I really bought too much—and a lot of it is stuff I shouldn’t be eating. So I called DD and she’s going to come over tomorrow and take a lot of food for her and her DH. Bonus time with DD, yay.)

My friend/guest took this pic from my balcony.

So glad you had a terrific visit! In November, my friend and I traveled to Cape Cod to visit my grade level partner's cottage. She also retired last year. What a nice visit we had going to craft fairs, local restaurants, and just hanging out. You sound like the perfect hostess. And what a spectacular view you have!

There is nothing like spending time with a good friend. The view from your balcony is spectacular. It makes me want to move to San Diego.

Sounds like a wonderful visit, and your view is spectacular! What a good friend to drive all that way solo. (I wonder how long it would take to drive from NJ- hmmmm....)

Enjoy your visit with your DD, too.

Low key fun is the best; it means you were completely relaxed and enjoying each other's company. Your view is mesmerizing!

I love that your friend could visit! Friends where you can just pick-up and talk, talk, talk for days are the best.
