Clean, quiet, and lonesome

Got up pretty early this morning to see the travelers on their way. 

Bill and Kate gathered up their stuff,

headed out to the car, and left.

The living room is clean again, but empty.

We went to church, had lunch, and read a little until we fell asleep in the quiet.

It’s lonesome with just Big Al and me in the house,

and it’s way too hot to go anywhere or do anything.  (That temperature is down from 101 deg less than an hour ago.)
