My Son is Visiting from Spain!

My son is visiting from Spain! Before that he would have been visiting from Portugal and before that Germany. Even the word “visiting” sounds so strange to me. Who would think when you held that little baby in your arms that some day he would come back to “visit”? We raise our children as best we can and then send them off to create their place in the world. We can only hope that their part in this world will be a good one.

My youngest son works for a world wide solar company, and travels to help build these amazing creations of solar energy. His company is American based, but most of their work is in other parts of the world. America is behind other countries in this area, although he tells me that they are currently building the largest solar installation in America in the state of Nevada. Maybe we’ll catch up!

So while I enjoy my time with him, take a look at these pictures. This is the project he worked on in Portugal! See that grass underneath the panels? It is “mowed” by sheep. Yes, sheep. Now how smart is that?

Good Day Sunshine! (:

    Love, love, love the whole solar and sheep thing. The ultimate in renewal energy! We had solar when we lived in Hawaii, and wish it was more available here in OR, especially now since we’re battling with LNG. Thanks for sharing Anne… you give me hope, and THAT is sunshine! :o)ReplyCancel

  • Cindy Roberts - Have a memorable visit, Anne! Hey when you get a chance, I left some comments on your Flickr photos. Where can I get some of your Miss Emma fabric? I would like to make some simple bags and feature them on my blog! Thanks, Anne! CindyReplyCancel

  • maryscottagequilts - I spent 18 months in Spain – loved it! I’m glad he can visit you. I once heard a saying that goes like this. “The greatest gifts you can give your children are the roots of responsibiliby and the wings of independence”. (I’ts just nice when they “fly” home to visit) :)

  • Julia - Enjoy your visit!! Thanks so much for the photos, fascinating to say the least. Nice to see that we are starting to use more of our clean natural resources. Solar and wind power are the way to go!!! IMHOReplyCancel

  • Lynn@ The Vintage Nest - Hi Annie, Andrea told me about your blog so here I am. It’s a delightful blog and your website is so cute. I am not a quilter but your site makes me wish I was. It is funny having your children “visit” isn’t it? Both my sons live so far away and I just can’t wait for their “visits”. Have a super great day. ~ LynnReplyCancel

  • Mom2fur - I hope you have a wonderful visit! Wow…they do grow up fast. Mine are still living at home. The oldest is 24 and looking for his own place. It’s going to feel weird then they are all gone…and they come to ‘visit’ me! But all the way from Spain? I bet you never imagined your baby would be a world traveler one day!ReplyCancel

  • kjquilts - Great solar pictures! The panels look a lot like quilts! Enjoy your visit with your son!ReplyCancel

  • Mary - I had to giggle when I read that your son was visiting from Spain, as I read it the day that my youngest son MOVED to Spain, to work as an architect at his first post college job.

    Remember when everyone stayed in the town they grew up in? Aah.

    Love your quilts.ReplyCancel
