I was sure I had written a post recently but apparently not.
MiL and FiL arrive tomorrow night! It seemed like an age away then a few weeks, then a week and now only a day! And topping it off nicely, I misread the forwarded message (it is in about 6pt and a grey font) and thought they arrive on Sunday.... so we will be very busy people tomorrow. Whoops!

I've been madly making stuff and trying to get work done and tidying but we have a bit of tidying to go alas. And cleaning. And Seattle's garbos (rubbish bin collectors) are on strike so it could get a bit dire, especially at the rate I am going through stuff here and cleaning things out. It amazes me how much stuff we accumulate so quickly and how much packaging and random odds and ends just build up. You (I) hang on to things because "they might be useful" or they haven't expired or whatever but they never get chucked out until a thorough cleaning happens. So out it goes! Into recycle, composting or just the bin. Unless I can give it to the op shop (goodwill, thrift, etc)
Instead of blathering for ages, I think I shall leave you with some pics I've taken in my wanderings recently. All taken on the phone so excuse the quality - blogger does something odd with the phone pics - they look perfectly fine on the computer and on the phone until I load them here.
