There's nothing like company to work as an incentive to get things done around the house. Those boxes in the hallway that have been there for five months? Gone. A closet that badly needs cleaning out? Done, and four bags of clothes off to Goodwill. The whole house dusted (!) and vacuumed AND mopped?! Done! I think I need company more often...

Fraser's parents are in town for awhile. Jacob is excited beyond measure. Doing his "excited dance", asking about Mimi and Pop every day for a week, going to the airport to get them.... It's really quite endearing. Skype has changed so many lives; allowing kids to feel closer to far-off relatives so everyone gets to avoid that awkward warm-up period when we only can get together once or twice a year.

We'll be enjoying Oregon's bounty over the next several days: canning peaches (which Jacob and I picked yesterday), picking blueberries, visiting the coast, canning tuna (if I can pull it all together). And we'll be enjoying each other's company which is always appreciated.
