Monday I basically worked on getting the house ready for my guests. My parents and my brother drove in from 5 and 7 hrs away to spend my bday evening with me. My mom helped me do a ton of gardening in the backyard (I always ask for this for my bday instead of other gifts). We went sightseeing to the market and botanical gardens etc on Wed afternoon and then met up with my neice and then I got my dad and my bro to do the rest of the gardening. In the evening we watched shrek 3 and Garbage Warrier (must see!!!) but if you don't get a chance to watch it you can view their work here. http://www.earthship.org/
They all left this morning and I felt really bummed. I don't see my family often and the rather short visit left me feeling nostalgic for more time with them. Nothing a good night out with friends this weekend won't cure :) and of course my puppies make me feel all warm and fuzzy.
