Company is now gone :(

Since the weekend Jim and Nancy have been here. They are from Iowa, well recently from Texas, and then New Mexico, before that Arizona and somewhere in between was California.

You see they wintered out west. They have lived in Iowa all their life. That is until this January.

They took their 5th wheel and flew the coop.

We sure enjoyed their company. Jim threw the blacksmith out of the canoe on Monday. And we still enjoyed their company. Even if the fish still got away. While the guys were fishing Nancy and I took Elizabeth and shopped at Wal-mart.

Tuesday the guys went 4 wheeling. The girls went to the Lake of the Ozarks shopping. We first checked out Love to Sew Boutique. Nancy and I both bought fabric. You know the old saying: the quilter that dies with the most fabric wins! Our next stop was Marshall's, then one of us, I'm not saying who did some serious shopping. That person even bought a Christmas present.

BT showed Nancy how to weave her palm.

This was the Pork Loin with Pepper jelly I made for dinner on Monday night. My thanks to Pioneer Woman for the recipe.

You know some times pictures just don't tell you like it is. Nancy and Jim gave us the top package of marshmallows. The package on the bottom are the mini's. The big one are HUGE. The package is all in spanish, it is 840 grams which is about 1 lb and 8 ounces. I can't wait to surprise the grand kids with these.
We are sorry to see the company leave. But they have been away from their home for almost 3 months. Which means they have been away from their kids, daughter-in-laws, son-in-law and GRAND KIDS for 3 months. I know they missed them all.
I hope they come back soon.

Visits from dear friends and family are treasures. It sounds like you had a wonderful visit. Too bad the fish got away tho. So, What is Palm Weaving? I have never heard of this curious weaving. I can imagine your guests are very anxious to get back home to their family too.
Bless You and Hoppy Easter

That sounds like a fun few days.

I've always wondered how to weave the palms. They always look so neat like that.

How nice to have a visit from dear friends.
The pork Loin looks wonderful. Don't you love that cook book. We use it at the shop to make lunches for Friday hooking day.
Have a beautiful Easter
