I've been looking forward to Sara visiting for... practically all summer! She normally stops in the end of September and stays through the beginning of November. We visit a lot, shop, cook, clean (for the Party), and she comes to our Halloween party. (We've even done some quilting classes in previous years - but I still haven't finished my projects like Sara has.) Unfortunately for me, she had to leave early this year - I got barely a week with her. And didn't take pictures like I would have if I'd realized our time was so short.
While Sara was here, Jeannea came up on her way to King Cove, so we got a long weekend with her. Sara left while Jeannea was still visiting, and now Jeannea is gone too - so I'm sister-less. Until sometime in November, when Jeannea comes back through. And Sara has promised to spend a bit more time with me on her way up to Valdez next Spring.
