Well my company is all gone and all is back to normal, except for a heart broken dog. Every time I have company, I realize my dog will leave me first chance she gets. She is a bit of a floozy.
When my brother and SIL got here, Callie forced her way into their RV and ran front to back whining frantically. It was like she was saying, "You came back for me, you really did! I almost gave up hope. Why did you take so long?"
Really made me feel warm and loved---ha. I have always thought it is a good thing I have fenced property or she would go with the first person who drove up and opened their car door. She is always looking for a better deal.
The whole time Jim was here and sat on the couch, he had a 20 pound furry body draped over his lap. She followed him everywhere. I only got attention when it was time to feed her. Sigh.
The weather was pretty awful with high winds and hail one night but no damage was done. It was also cold and cloudy so we got in lots of catch up time. Jim also did his usual and fixed a variety of things for me that needed a man's attention. He cut down a tree, put a new blade on my mower and fixed the front door. Sure is nice having a handy brother.
I would have taken pictures but Jim doesn't want his image on the Internet. I try to convince him that the worst that will happen is that someone one will Photoshop a naked body to his head. I have no fear of that. In my case, most any naked body would be an improvement.
My SIL loved my wraparound porch for she could get in her exercise walking rapidly around the house without getting wet. Hum, maybe I have underutilized my porch.
It was really great seeing them both. We had many a laugh and I got to experiment with recipes. The fact that they bring their own house with them makes them easy peasy company. I miss them but am also glad to be back to my old routine and having my dog greet me enthusiastically once more.
Hope I didn't miss too much while I was gone and that everything went well for all of you.
