I thank you all for the good wishes and the warm welcome back. 
I have been busy this past week. (can't believe I have been back a week) 
I guess the problem with a vacation is you come back to so much stuff that needs to be done then once you get it done you need another vacation.  Took me a week to mow the lawn in bit because it had grown so long and all I have is an electric mower....with a dull blade. 

You are all welcome to come and see pictures.  I will bake and fix some "pulled pork BBQ" , red potato salad with blue cheese, and baked beans.  I figure the meal will make up for the boring pictures you would all be subjected to. 

I may have mentioned this by my husband did very well during his Respite stay.  It took me a bit to get him out the door but as soon as he got into the car he told me the direction to take to go home once home he settled into his recliner like a regular day. 
This gives great peace of mind knowing that when he does need full time care he will adjust pretty quickly. 

Again thanks to all for the welcome back, good to know I was missed.

Nellie, about bringing back recipes....
I di aquire a new fondness for hot chocolate, I mean real hot chocolate in the morning along with a croissant either plain or chocolate.  Did find a place that had the most amazing almond croissant that I have ever had. Got one for the road!
I did try a few things that I have never had before and I am glad that I did. 
Tried Sweetbreads for the first time. 
One place had herring as an appetizer along with a "warm potato salad" Well the herring were amazing, I could have made a meal of them alone. 
I also had the most fantastic Tiramisu. The ones I have had in the past have been soggy and overly flavored with coffee. 
The couple that I traveled with both enjoy fine food and cooking so the trip ended sounding like a cooking show as we "dissected" the meals. The wife of my previous boss has had extensive training in French cooking and I have asked her for several recipes that will duplicate some of the items I had.  

All in all well worth the 10 pounds I gained.....not sure if my doctor will see it that way when I see him on Tuesday. Blood tests were done on Friday so my "fate has been sealed".  I know it was a bit idiotic scheduling blood work and a doctor visit so soon after my return.  "Se la vie!"
