Way too early in the morning on Saturday I'm flying up to northeastern Washington to spend a week with my family. I'm looking forward to the time with Mom and Dad, and I'm looking forward to not having to work! I took the entire week off, which is pretty unusual for me. We'll spend some time around the house, maybe attend the local county fair, and we've also planned a few nights camping in Montana where Dad will spend lots of time fishing and Mom and I will maybe do a little sewing on her hand-crank Singer. Sounds like loads of fun to me!
Alan is staying home to tend to the farm, and he will be missed. I wish he could go too -- I know he would enjoy this trip. But it's just too much time away from the farm in the heat of summer for us both to jet up north. He always reads my blog, so maybe you can post lots of nice comments for him to read while I'm away!
The August Whipper Snapper release will be Monday, August 24th. I'm over-the-top excited for this month's release! There will be three sets, and I can tell you right now, I *LOVE* every single one of them!! I have a couple of posts drafted up to share with you next week while I'm up north, but how about a wee little sneak peek now!?
