My sister and her husband visited today. The first motivation was to pick up our "old" couch as a donation to her eldest son who is setting up housekeeping in a fixer-upper house. He has no furniture and the place he's moving into needs much work and furnishing to become livable. This is an excellent development for him and we're glad to support him by giving him some nice used furniture –the couch and other things– to get a good start. We enjoyed a nice visit with our guests, took them to lunch at Panera Bread, and gave them a tour of the library where I work and was actually on duty this afternoon (half-day Sunday). Sister is also a library worker: circulation. Surprisingly, so is my niece: cataloging! My grandmother, aunt, uncle, and one of my cousins were and are teachers. Now we seem to be branching out into another educational field! The weather was sunny and warm today, a gorgeous early autumn day for travel: a fine day for a visit.
