Away and Back Again

I had a far-too-brief visit with my grandparents in South Carolina last week, a fair chunk of which was spent working on the final for my epidemiology class. I also managed to get David to follow me down a day later - his first trip ever to see where I grew up. I pretty sure it was the promise of cheese grits every morning that did it.

Anyway, what with all the finalizing of the exam and the visiting and the knitting of the sweater (I'm working on the back!), not very many photos got taken. In fact, I only have two to offer, and they're both from airports. The first is one I snapped when I got to Logan Airport in Boston at around 4:30AM on Wednesday. The security checkpoints hadn't even opened yet because so few people were there.

And the second was in the Charlotte airport waiting to return home. This little girl and her brother decided to play peekaboo with me from behind the pillar I was sitting next to, so out came the camera and I managed to snap this:

She told me her name is Grace and her brother's name is Will. Her parents, apparently, watch way too much TV.

Welcome Home! I hope you remembered to eat cheese grits in between studying. Cheese grits are scientifically proven to improve brain function. At least that's what I've been told...

Pretty airport and cute little Grace.

I confess that I've had grits, but I made them, and since I'm a total yank and was just going by the pkg, some 20 years ago, I am sure I have not truly had the grits experience. Do you have to work the holiday? Hope you get to relax some.

I take it SC was substantially warmer than Maine (and Wisconsin) is right now. I'm so jealous! Snort! Will and Grace! Snort!

Mmmmmm...cheese grits!!! How I miss those from our years in NC. They just don't taste the same from a package up here.
Nice airport. Like everything else here, ours is just plain old ugly.
