We came home Friday night totally exhausted. Then Saturday I had to work at the library. On Sunday, Mom and I began making curtains for the great room. I've only had the fabric since 2004 - before we moved into the house. There is only one large window in the great room and one would think I'd get the curtains done quickly - NOT! That window looks out over the back deck and then into our woods to there's no immediate impetus to cover it up. Anyway, the curtain is almost done...now I need to pick out the rod and then have John install it...pictures to follow but, please don't hold your breath! It could take another 4 years to get the last part done!
Mom is a city girl (like me) and is fascinated with country things. Every time she comes to visit we tell her about the deer that live in our woods and come out at twilight to eat and drink and she has NEVER seen them. 4 years now and not a single deer has she spotted. She kept telling us we were fibbin' about the deer. On Saturday nite she finally saw them...4 of them were grazing in the meadow just before the woods begin in the back. And one was in the front yard. And then on Sunday, John calls her out to the front porch to see a turtle he almost ran over with his Grasshopper. Mom gingerly agreed to hold it. Our son's family always calls turtles Honu cause that's the name they are known by in Hawaii and they picked it up when they went on a visit last year.
Mom is due to fly home on Saturday...I can't believe she's been here for almost 3 weeks. The time has flown. Maybe we can get her to come back sooner than next October????
More next time. Thanks for stopping by.
