My daughter, Noelle is coming today to help with the packing. It will be bittersweet for the two of us. There will be no more opportunities to jump into the car and drive the few hours from southern to central California. It will be up to Allegiant Airlines to keep up the low fares from LAX to Fargo. And flying seems so daunting these days. But here we are last Christmas, the last family Christmas at Castenada Lane, with Noelle and I imbibing and Robert, of course, cooking and the meatballs and lingonberries and lefsa almost ready to be served.
For now, time to spend just being a Mom and back to being the Snowbird in a few days. Stay tuned.
