Family still visiting and all is well. Saturday we had one heck of a thunderstorm and it knocked out our phone lines, which in turn affected my DSL service - so no internet for the past 4 days.
There seemed to be a little confusion over my Mom's tatting class - I scheduled the class for Saturday the 29th and the shop owner had put that date down on one calendar and then on another the 22nd so all the postcards annoucing the class were wrong. I never caught the mistake and when we arrived home Friday night after taking MIL and SIL to Southern Pines to visit with MIL's brother, there was a message that everything was all set for the class, there were 10 people signed up and that she (the owner) would be there early so we could arrive anytime. I nearly had a heart attack because Mom was not scheduled to be here until the following day. It worked out okay because there was someone there that could teach very beginner basic tatting and the others are willing to come again on Thursday night and Saturday morning, so Mom can teach them. WHEW!!!! I was just slightly frantic and especially after losing my phone service and couldn't follow up on what was going on.
For those who have emailed and commented I will slowly catch up and get back to you all. Thanks for your patience.
Have a nice rest of the week!
