The past few weeks we have been a bit preoccupied here on the Hill.
Jim and I (mostly Jim) spent the beginning of June getting ready for the arrival of Fee (and her family) for a two-week visit. We did a reno on the Master Bedroom, which turned in to a much larger project than expected – of course! What project in an old house ever goes exactly like it is planned? The transformation is not quite complete, but once things settle down I will be sure to post pictures.
The end of the month brought their arrival and the successive holiday week brought the rest of the family along for the festivities. Today marks my return to work after a four-day weekend. We still have house guests, and a proper update is well overdue.
In the meantime, they all seem to have slept in today! Since I found a few minutes of quiet, here is a collection of snapshots of Fee’s visit for her first American Independence Day celebration (among other things)
