BBBB: part two: First night.
After being shown to my room in the gorgeous old home, I was treated to Squash and Quinoa with cheese (?) on top, and a salad, and then creme brulee! Incredible! I met Judit and Jen and their dear babies, along with Rixa and her dear baby, and my ever faithful and supportive Kelley, who, like me, left her little ones home with Daddy. Her and I shared a room, and the mamas with babies to nurse all night got their own rooms. We watched the Psalm and Zoya unassisted birth of twins video, which I had seen on TV a couple of years ago--and talked about -- big shock-- birth! We all got along really well right off the bat, not a surprise, but still great. We finally went to bed and planned on getting up whenever it would suit us best to have a home viewing of The Business of Being Born by 9am. I got washed up and into my bed with the fluffy comforter and actually had a good sleep, despite the sustained adrenaline of the drive and the new friends, etc. It was quiet, and the stars were beautiful outside my window. It had been pitch dark for the majority of my traveling, and so I wondered what this town would look like in the daylight. and that's the last thing I remember until it was light out, and I rolled over and saw my friend Kelley open her eye and say "Good Mornin!"
