We got back around 5ish. Maybe 5:30ish and Hannah was working on homework, so we decided best to leave her to it. Hoppie asked me to show him the balcony. I brought my book just in case we got trapped out there, as could easily happen, and actually did happen. Irene came home shortly thereafter (maybe 30...40 minutes, maybe 10, time does not exist on the balcony) and brought us blankets, which they keep by the door because of the cool breezes. She was delighted to see us out there enjoying the bay view, feeling relaxed.
Eventually George and Irene, in varying quantities joined us, and we started on bottle number 1. Then George gave us the tour, and then Irene took over. It's really a lovely house. We ended up downstairs watching the Oakland/Anaheim game with Hannah on the THX certified (No, really, certificates and everything.) TV.
Then we got called up for dinner (Bottle number 3 maybe?) where we devoured steaks, salad, pasta, and bottles number 3-6.
Bottle number 7 was consumed while watching Irene on a diet program on FitTV. Anyone interested, it's the French Woman's Diet. I'm going to try to come up with a link.
George had to be up early, so he went to bed. Then hoppie turned to me and said, "It's time for bed. I'm done." He stumbled downstairs and headed straight to bed. I went around and shut off lights, put away the food, and headed downstairs. I got some sleep and then I woke up. Hoppie's asleeping now. George is already off to work, and the world is quiet here.
