Preparations

DSC_5161We're having friends over this weekend for a house warming party so recently things have been pretty busy getting prepared. Linzy has been doing most of the planning and the bulk of the work (baking dozens of cookies today, for example), but I am sure that tomorrow evening and Saturday morning my work will begin.

Anyways last night's post was derailed because we finally got around to addressing the drapes that we bought for the patio door months ago. The patio door is a strange size and so instead of buying custom ones we instead bought slightly too long drapes and Linzy hemmed them (quite well, I might add). But hemming drapes is a big pain, so it was a two person job. And then there was the matter of the wrinkles and creases that had never worked themselves out, and so the steamer had to make an appearance. The end result is much improved, but it took much longer then expected.

We got a lot of RSVPs in the last day or so, and it looks like there will be a good turnout. That means a last minute scramble for more food and drinks, but that's a good problem to have. I'm excited to get to see everyone.
