Busy, bittersweet weekend this one is turning out to be. Yesterday, we and a bunch of my dad’s family worked on clearing things out of my grandma’s old house as we prepare it for sale. Today, a quick impromptu party for Vivian’s birthday (tomorrow). Also getting to see this sweet little guy (see photo) and my folks a couple of times (before my sister leaves tomorrow on her first trip overseas, to the UK!). Busy, busy.
