Tuesday was Nannie's last full day with us on this trip. I guess it would be redundant to say another hot one was predicted. We opted to go to the movies early Tuesday afternoon, beat the heat inside an air-conditioned theater! What flick did we pick? A Million Ways to Die in the West -- an outrageously funny movie that had the entire audience (including us) rolling in the aisles! What a great way to spend a hot ol' afternoon, followed by an easy dinner at Lefty's in Nevada City.
So, Jimmy and I bid adieu to my sister on Wednesday 6/11. Back to the Reno airport where she would take off on the first of two flights home... in clear weather, thank goodness. Back to her home and husband. Nannie and I are like two peas in a pod, tho we're seven years apart in age (she bees the younger one). We love to spend time together and it doesn't matter where or what we're doing. As adults, she and I lived next door to each other in Louisiana for ten years and that part of our lives was simply grand.
One advantage of our hot weather week was being able to get up early, and she and I would go sit on the back deck, in shorts or light jammies (or whatever). With coffee and binocs, we'd sit out there watching various birds sample the feeders, and we'd chitchat or sit quietly... no stress, no worries, no haste, just two best friends - sisters - treasuring the simple stuff of life. It doesn't get any better than this. Love you, my seester!
The heat wave broke the next morning....
