jiggity jig

Home again, home again, and all that.
My parents drove home yesterday morning, and arrived safely. Mom's eye is swelling, but I think she's on the right track to recovery. I arrived home a little later in the afternoon. Lordie, it's good to be home. The cat slept on top of me all night long, as though to make sure I don't get up and leave again.

I came home to a fresh set of Andy Blackwood improvements - a gorgeous floor-to-ceiling built-in cabinet, a new counter covered in butcher block, and new railings on the deck. I love how the house smells after Andy has been here working - like freshly cut wood. Now we just have to get the staining and painting work done so I can fill the pantry with tasty things and lovely glassware. Sounds like Sunday will full of brushes and tape and unguents. I'll hold off repainting the deck until the landscaping finishes up - I can't wait for the deck furniture to arrive so I can spend my morning coffee out with my trees.

Thanks so much to everyone for their support, well-wishes, and encouraging comments. It helped so much to know you are there, and means the world to me.
