All of this does not mean that I wasn't thrilled silly to see them. I love my brother and sister in law and my niece and nephew, while being teenagers, are extraordinarily wonderful people. It is so nice to unexpectedly see them this summer. Oh, did I mention that in getting all this together in four days, the water heater went out on the 4th of July? No pressure there. I ran to Sears on Tuesday, ordered a new water heater and arranged to have it delivered the day of the family's arrival. Timing is everything.
On Sunday we went to Seattle via the ferry in Bremerton. We ate mini cheesecakes, lots of fresh fruit from the vendors in Pike Place Market and did our best to look as much like tourists as possible (most of that was to embarrass the teenagers). The clumsy locusts have headed to the ocean today and possibly to head down the Oregon coast and I have the house to myself for a couple of days. I'll try to get some work done on the Spinster quilt or just relax and coax the cats back into the house.
