The Cross House
Celeste is a super-fan of this blog, and has read every post. She even remembered the names of my indoor kitties! It was great fun touring the house with her as she would gasp with delight at X or Y or Z! “Oh! That’s the termire-damaged wall!”
We all went out to Radius for lunch and had delicious pizza, and then Celeste and Cindy receive the Grandest Ever Grand Tour™; all four floors plus the carriage hours, with chatty pit stops sandwiched in.
Celeste and Cindy have been friends for ages, and live near each other. I did not know that Celeste had to hire cat care for the trip, and Cindy dog care. I had previously stated that I would reimburse their gas, pay for overnight accommodation in Emporia, and take them to lunch. But after hearing this news I added: “Include the kitty and doggie care!”
Finally, with us all exhausted, we jumped into our vehicles to head to THE coolest AirBnB in town:
Well, I soon left Celeste and Cindy alone to SWIM IN THE POOL, and I returned to my humble home.
Oh! Oh! Wanna see the marble vanity in place?
Scroll way down…
This whole thing has been miraculous.
First, Mary contacts me. “I think I found the perfect marble vanity for you!.”
Second, Celeste contacts me: “I can bring it to you! My friend Cindy and I would love a road trip!”
Third, Celeste learned that, after I contact the seller, the seller spurned all other offers for the vanity. “It’s already spoken for.”
Fourth, after getting discouraged about everything already being booked in Emporia, a single night IN THE COOLEST PLACE was available for just the night.
So, thank you Mary!
Thank you, Celeste!
Thank you, Cindy!
