I had a very nice visit with my sister and niece this week, this is their first time here, I must say that my sister and niece handled the primitive conditions, poo-bucket, cold nights and such very well.
Unfortunately the visit wasn't long enough, they arrived late in the day on Saturday and left today, Tuesday. They got a late start the day they left, it was sprinkling with some snow mixed in for good measure, but it dried up nicely by mid-morning and they were able to get away just fine.
I took some pix of them before they left, so you can see what some of my family looks like.
My sister and I are pretty close, but we are pretty opposite, we like to say that I got the cooking gene and she got the jewelry gene. I am perfectly happy being out in the middle of nowhere, she gets antsy if she is that far from a WallyWorld, so for now, we will just have to be happy with visits, I'll not be talking her into coming out on a permanent basis, at least not until TSHTF, there will be no WallyWorlds then. LOL!
Oh, BTW, you can see the knit hats they are wearing, those were made by yours truly, I knitted them just a few days before they arrived as a surprise. My sister especially appreciated hers, she slept in it to keep warm. My sister's hat has a couple of rows of fancy stitching, it's hard to see in the pictures, and since the yarn I used for her hat is so soft, the fancy stitches don't show up as well. My niece's hat took some doing, I knitted the brim as usual, but took it off the knitting loom, turned it inside out, placed it back on the knitting loom, then turned it to make the brim, there is probably an easier way to create that look, but since I tend to make things up as I go, I didn't follow a pattern, I am happy with them.
