We are very excited because some special company will arrive this week. Chris' wonderful sisters Brenda (from Mississippi) and Linda (from Florida) are coming to spend a few days experiencing life at Fair Winds. When our daughter flew the coop last summer I turned her old room into a guest room, and the old guest room became Chris' office. I never did much to make the guest room special, partly because it seemed so sad that it was no longer "home" to my sweet Rachel. But the upcoming visitors have spurred me into action. Chris kindly patched the many holes in the ceiling that dear daughter had made hanging whimsical flying sculptures, then painted for me. He can do all of that without a ladder, whereas I would have been scrambling up and down. I touched up some places on the walls that needed a "fix." Then I went to work to make the room look comfortable and welcoming. Pretty and soft new sheets go beautifully with the amazing quilt that Brenda made me a while back. I did have that quilt on my bed, but since the dogs hang out on my bed I am afraid it will be ruined. It will be safer here! I set up a little writing nook for me, too. The view from the window is of the pony shed, very sweet! I hope that this space will make guests feel serene and comfortable. The newly done space certainly makes me happy.
