Our guests departed on Wednesday and it was back to reality. We had a fantastic visit even if my husband was recovering from surgery and we have things weighing heavily on our minds. It was nice to have loved ones around to break bread with and converse with. The #FraferfestRAT was a success, even if I only managed one book and one audio. Now it’s time to gear up for the Ho-Ho-Ho Readathon! Stay Caffeinated!
