I'm still here, but busy with the enjoyable presence of my MIL and FIL from Ye Olde New Hampshire. Any stereotypes that may exist around the matter of visiting mothers-in-law (see image) do not apply—these are lovely people, and on top of the general fun surrounding their visits, they take us to lunch (their treat); help around the house (dishes, anyone?); admire Señor Bartholomule (a requirement at Bent Barrow Farm); and generally take care of our every need and want. It will be a sad day when they are swept back to the east. And so, without further ado . . . I'm off to enjoy their continued company, and to abandon my blogging for another day.
