Groaning houses

Heavy thick fog swirls about my back porch light. It is unusual to have such fog close to the house....it is like a soft gray blanket. The old house likes this soft sweetness as it begins to fill up with family for Thanksgiving. Adam and Tonya arrived on Friday and settled into the Bridal Suite room...Abe and Kristin along with my Blue Moon Baby, Holly, arrive tonight. Tonya and I are driving to the Fort Wayne airport to pick them up. All the rooms are cozy and ready.

Aaron and Karen and the boys are in and out as well although the boys have to give up their room for this additional company! The refrigerator has been stocked, oh, two or three times already as it seems as if this is the meet-and-greet house for meals.

The old house is ready, today is my last day of school....ahhh, let the Holidays begin!

Lou Ann Homan-Saylor lives in Angola, Indiana which is nestled in the hills of Northern Indiana and spends her summers on the wind swept island of Ocracoke. You can find her gardening or writing late into the night under the light of her frayed scarlet lamp. She is a storyteller, a teacher, a writer, an actress and a collector of front porch stories.
