Whew! What a whirlwind week and weekend that was! We sent Nana and Papa back to Boston today after a lovely, very busy two weeks. We will miss them but will actually be out that way in a few weeks, so we won’t have to wait too long to see them.

This weekend we visited the farmers market, after a few weekends missing it. We spent lots of time with Nana and Papa and took lovely walks and little hikes with them in the town they were staying in (this little hike gets you to an area where you can see seals. We got to see a few swimming in the ocean this time). And the excitement for Jeff this weekend was the picking of his hops. It’s harvest time and Jeff got to pick (with Ellie and his parents) half of what we had growing. They are currently drying in his home office. I fear our whole house is going to smell like a brewery!

It was a busy, nice weekend. We’ll be headed back east for a little late summer vacation in a few weeks, so I’m sure I’ll be revving up for that in the coming days and weeks. And I have lots of crafty things to post about in the coming days as well as some things I’m working on.

Hoping you had a lovely weekend!
