It snowed today for the first time. I raced out to capture the moment on film (or I guess I should say memory stick). There isn't much accumulation, but apparently there will be more tomorrow. Jesse called to say that he and Sabrina are driving to Bangor from Connecticut tonight instead of tomorrow in order to avoid the bad weather. I'm very happy they are coming, but worried that they will get caught on slippery roads. Jesse is a good driver, and he is, after all, an adult. I don't know if it's possible for a mother to really see things that way.
I spent the day working on the guest room in anticipation of their visit and it looks pretty good considering it is the only room in the house that wasn't redone. I also cleaned out the small room at the end of the old sunporch where the washer and dryer are. Since the washer doesn't work, that has become the room where everything gets dumped if I don't know where else to put it. Since I have bought a second-hand washer, I need to get the room ready for it. The wall has to be removed in order to get it in, which will be a boon to my studio space. It's difficult for me to keep from taking a sledge hammer to it myself, but I am waiting for Will to assess the situation first. Dominic stands ready to deliver it to me, so soon I will not have to go to the laundromat. Happy day!
I am having Thanksgiving with Lisa and Will and their family tomorrow. I have been looking forward to it, so will still go even though the kids may be here. They would probably be welcome too, but they will be tired from the drive from Bangor. It's unlikely that they will want to go.
