Knowing today would be a long one of packing and doing the last minuter things before boarding on the plane at midnight this evening for the long journey home, we slept-in this morning which was wonderful. There were last minute errands to do and one last book group/pot luck supper to attend. Our book group--seven women--sat on the deck and enjoyed the flowers and backyard of a friend's house in midtown Anchorage, across the street from where we lived for 10 years. We discussed "The Girl With No Shadow," ate wonderful salads, luscious moist chocolate cake.
