So one of the unexpected after effects of having my parents here is that they've left me several fun hobbies to do in the evenings. Mom brought the supplies to make rugs, dad made these great toys while he was here and left me the paint and good brushes. I have several pots to macrame, and I want to start some of the seeds they brought for my garden. So bad news for you. I could sit here and blog how wonderful the past few weeks have been and then get sad about how much I miss my visitors already. Or I can paint tucks to give as Christmas presents. Maybe tomorrow night I'll feel like writing about their trip.
