Today my sister is coming. I’m pretty excited because she hasn’t been here since the day after we moved in, when she did a great job helping me get our new kitchen organized.
We instituted what we call our “sister visits” a number of years ago, when we discovered that much as we enjoy visiting in various family contexts, there’s something very special about spending time together, just the two of us. Janet will stay overnight, as she usually does on a sister visit, giving us lots of hours for chatting, walking in the woods, and whatever else strikes our fancy – sometimes shopping, sometimes playing a game of Scrabble or Blokus, sometimes baking cookies (we usually do that on our pre-Christmas sister visit). Maybe this time we’ll do some yoga practice together, decide on some new photos for our new house’s “Rogues Gallery”, now that the hall wall is painted and ready for the family pics.
Janet also reminded me with her “WordPress.com vs WordPress.org” blog entry (at www.janetbarclay.com) that we might also be looking at personalizing the appearance of my blog, so come back soon!
