crane day, revised

Just in case you've been waiting with bated breath...

The crane is coming TOMORROW!!!! (That's Friday. The 19th.)

We're gonna have a work party up there to make it all happen. You can come play, if you want. Or, you can come Saturday. We'll work then, too. ;)

(And, in case you're a word nerd, I looked up "bated breath," 'cause I didn't want to misuse it. I'd have spelled it "baited breath," which doesn't really make so much sense to me. Turns out, it's "bated." Like "abated." Like you've stopped breathing until the moment when you'd know when the crane was coming... Not like you've hung a crane out there like "bait" to draw the folks up the hill to Julian.)

This word nerd is sorry she was in pastoral care class instead of Julian when the crane came.

But I appreciated the etymological aside!

Now, can you resolve whether it is party hardy or party hearty?

Hope the thing of beauty that is the Julian house was another act of love this weekend.

Sorry we couldn't be there but we're looking forward to bringing Shannon's favorite soup and some other goodies Thanksgiving weekend.
