Summer time, and the living is...busy!!

We have had a constant stream of visitors with us since the end of July.  Well, maybe I'm exaggerating a bit but our good friends from Sacramento, Jim and lisa, were here for a few days and two days later the Mr's brother and his family arrived.  And although this isn't really a 'constant stream', it has felt like it.

It has been fun being a tourist in our own city which we rarely indulge in any more.  We've been all over the UW campus and U District, downtown Seattle, and the Seattle Center.  Then yesterday up to Victoria BC to see Butchart Gardens and roam around the waterfront of Victoria before heading home on the boat last night.

While I've had a great time seeing everyone I'm really looking forward to a break in the visitors and getting back to crafting!  I haven't really knit, spun or sewn for 4 weeks now and I'm getting antsy to get back at it.

  1. and you get a return visit from us too! Maddy looks so grown up! Have fun being tourist!

  2. I don't find the company so much tiring as it is the preparing for the company! I have friends of Steve's arriving in Topanga at the end of the month and things are getting done around here that haven't been done in years - LOL But I don't think I would wait for company to visit your beautiful Butchart gardens :)
