We've lived in this house for years and not once has anyone visited, except for my my mother in law once when our girl was born, but we stuffed the futon in the nursery and called it a day. Sadly, I've invited my sister in law and her family to visit us this year for Christmas but she's rebuffed me more times than I can count. Why wouldn't anyone want to spend a holiday freezing their asses off here in the tundra, right? So, much to my sheer delight, some old friends are visiting from out of town - from Orlando no less! The average temps there are in the 80s this week. I asked my husband when they confirmed the dates - "are you sure they are coming to visit us... in NOVEMBER?" They're either crazy or in for a big surprise, so as to lessen the blow of the harsh weather outside, my project this week is to convert our dank basement corner into a warm inviting guest room. As has been said, if you build it, more might come, right? I will be covering the before/after when all is said and done.

Misty morning

Days like this, I dream of Scotland.
