it's official, my house is warmed.
it was a sweet event, lots of lovely friends came to visit and although i feel that i barely had a chance to talk to most of them, i was glad to have them! i really should have issued self-guided tour sheets on arrival. next time.
as an added bonus, i was given plants my many! yippee! hollyhocks (thanks jeff's ma) and native tree seedlings (propagated by the multitalented marian) and herbs and vege seedlings, and a beautiful red rose bush (thanks tineke).
it turns out that i can fit quite a few people into this small living room, good thing too as the weather wasn't exactly conducive to outdoor partying. though there was blue sky at one point, and sunlight dappling the asbestos roof of my garage. very exciting, i took a photo.
oh, and ma brought along lacrosse stick things. and then played an impromptu game with pat. delightful! oh the joys of having enough lawn to play daft ball games.
today i may mow, and i may even time myself. i may also persuade jeff down the hill for one more coffee before he flies. i shall miss him immensely.
edit: well it rained again, so the mowing will have to wait. and jeff was easily persuaded.
