I have been cleaning and organizing this week, preparing for a visit from my Dad. It has been a few years since he has come for a visit, and we've been so excited for him to come. I kept thinking I would do a little post on our "cleaning-out and fixing-up" projects... but as usual, I can't seem to post when I am right in the middle of something. It is nice to have a spare room to spiff up. This year is the first year in a long time that we have had a spare room, with only Eddie left at home now. We re-arranged our little downstairs den, and the spare room, and finished little projects that we have been meaning to get to for ages. It was all very cozy when he got here.
Today we're going on a Colorado road trip... kind of a mini vacation together. We're going to Durango to "look up" some old relatives (a story for another time), and to explore the pretty countryside. Then we are going to take the Train to Silverton, which is an old mining town up in the mountains. Then (if we still have time and strength), we may go to Mesa Verde, which is an Indian ruin/cliff dwellings and archeological preserves. I keep thinking it would be nice to have Instagram for trips like this... but - well its not going to happen, so stay tuned for another post, a few pictures and a couple of recipes that I made while Dad was here.
Steve's Birthday is this week-end, so we are going to celebrate that and Father's Day(a week early) with my Dad. I'm thinking this has become a celebration for all of us. I took the picture of Dad and Eddie yesterday. I think it is a sweet one. Dad and Eddie are "birthday buddies" ... they share the same January birthday; so I had to have a picture of the birthday buddies together. Well, I suppose I better get ready to go... they are going to be in the car and honking at me if I don't get my self together haha.. I am off and away; Have a nice weekend everyone.
