If I labeled my DiL as a whirling dervish yesterday, today, we all caught what she had. This place was a hub of activity. The cages came off of the last 3 fruit trees. We think that the fencing is secure and no deer can get a free meal here, anymore. We had our family brunch, which is getting simpler and simpler as we get closer to the wedding. We had that trip to Costco where I thought I bought a brick of Irish  butter. When I got home, unwrapped it and decided to take a bite of that really good butter... it was cheese. I didn't notice that it very unclearly said "cheese " on the wrapper. . I was disappointed ,  but the cheese is great. That is what we had for brunch. Cheese, crackers ,fruit and coffee. Then, all hands on deck. I TSP'd my trailer,the kids moved the remaining tent over my deck( it looks terrific there),more weeding,pruning, raking,and my fav job..mowing. It is the first mow of the season, so I did some hand clipping around the stepping stones, just because. The yard looks wonderful, the sun came out and it would have been a perfect day for a wedding. The final job, and it really wasn't a job, was to try on a huge plastic flower wreath on Ella Faye , the massive golden elephant that is an important part of the yard. It was a dress rehearsal for her because we know that it will rain before the actual wedding and we want her flowers to be fresh. I have pictures showing her in all of her plastic glory.

Don't quite know how this got to me but it was on the top line of my computer (not in email) But I really enjoyed it. I truly admire you.

Everything sounds so wonderful Leona. Venice will seem boring . I would want to move to Portownsend where the kids are living. All sounds great . Is there?
