The last few times we have worked upstate we have stayed with our friend’s parents. It has been a lifesaver. We work all day Saturday get dirty and then head over to there place for shower, dinner, dessert and bed. We get great conversation (usually with some wine), a terrific meal (this week is was lasagna), and dessert. This week it was chocolate oatmeal bars, and home-made biscotti. Then in the morning there is breakfast. And if all that wasn’t enough, we get sandwiches and cookies for the road! Thank goodness we are working so hard.
