Mom loved her birthday celebration in the mountains and we all had a lovely weekend. Back to work on Tuesday and then on Thursday I picked up my "brother" Pete at the airport. He flew in from Hawaii to be part of the big surprise party for my mother. The party was a smash hit and my mother was totally surprised. It isn't easy to fool her so my siblings and I were pretty excited that we managed to keep everything secret until she arrived.
It's been a crazy past week with no end in sight. Pete is leaving this morning to return to Honolulu. (Wish I could fit in his suitcase!) I am leaving on Friday morning for my class reunion in Newport News, Virginia. How many years? 40! (I know - I can't believe it either!) When I return I have so much sewing to do as I am planning a "Hazelnut Hill" open house in early November.
I have misplaced my beautiful new Canon camera. As soon as I find it, I will post some photos!
