Busy Times Ahead

There's busy times ahead for our household.  
I'm off to a quilting retreat on Wednesday, leaving hubby at home to do his thing.  I'm sure he'll get his housekeeping hat on, too, even though he doesn't have to.  I'll be returning on Sunday and then my brother arrives on Monday.   It's his first time up here so it'll be interesting.  He's been in this area before and likes it.  I sure hope the weather cooperates.  There's been enough rain for a bit. 

Just two days after brother leaves, we have folks from Portland, Oregon arriving.  This will be their first trip to this part of the country and its been way too long since we saw them.  It's gorgeous where they live, of course, but its different here.

And, lastly, a couple of days after they leave, another couple from Florida is scheduled to arrive for a week long stay.  I think I'll be ready for a break by then.  

My perennials are winding down.  It won't be long before we have cold nights.  I'll also be emptying pots from the deck and/or bringing them inside soon, too.  I use clay pots and they can't withstand the thawing and freezing cycle if left outside.  I'll empty what I don't want to bring inside and store them out of the weather until spring.

I may not post here frequently, but I want all of you to know that I really do enjoy visiting your blogs and having you visit mine.

There've been a couple of new visitors and I really appreciate them.

Y'all take care. 


  1. WOW! You are going to be (or should I say BEE?) busy...enjoy!!...:)JP

  2. Yikes. You DO have a lot on your plate. But it all sounds like fun though.

  3. Hope you have a wonderful time at your retreat; with Management still working and a little dog who could not possibly cope with going into kennels, my quilty trips are a distant memory. BUT, your lovely post has 'kicked my b*tt' this morning - I have an unexpected free day and I am going to have my own little quilt retreat this afternoon! Thank you :-)

  4. You are going to be busy!! I wish I were a better hostess......I never let people come to the house. I never feel like I have enough time to clean.......and it really shouldn't be about should be about good times with good people. I hope you relax and enjoy all of your visitors! Have a great day!!

  5. Visitors! No wonder we havent heard from you! I hope you take good care of yourself afterwards, because the "during part"can be too busy with too much fun ! xoxo
