Last week I wrote about cooking-in and staying home but that just lasted for two nights. I just can't miss the opportunity to visit with good friends and have some good conversations.

Monday night we saw Tom and Dianne and their friends who were visiting before the four of them headed off for Tulum in Quintana Roo. Tom and Dianne have been back in the USA so there was a lot of catching up to do about grandchildren and what we have all been doing.

Last night Steve and Joan invited us and Suzanne for dinner. Although I had not seen the house they are in before they remodeled it, I was impressed. Joan is one of those people who can walk into a space and see how to transform it. Suzanne had looked at the house while it was on the market and she was amazed. Joan had made a wonderful dinner for us and it included some white beets that Steve had picked up at a farm out in the country. Oh, my, they were tasty, and while they tasted like a beet they were sweeter. I'd love to have some more of them. Lots of good conversations about travel and friends and houses.

Now we have to buckle down and try to wrap things up so we can head back to the USA on Friday. Time for family and Thanksgiving and more good talking.
