...disappear, that is. I meant to come back to report on the fabulous meeting we had here at my house for the NOVA Modern Quilt Guild, when I drank a couple of mimosas and talked quilting with some wonderful ladies. I was so giddy that I didn't take a picture - who does that?
But the minutes ran well ahead of me and before I knew it, we were on our roadtrip vacation to upstate New York, to Lake George. Where the ice cream ran a-plenty along with the magnificent lake views. It rained for most of the time we were there, so while we didn't get to hit the beach, we marveled at the glorious mist covered lake and the aura it created. Magical.
And since Hubby is a historian both by education and interest we, of course, were not lacking in our sightseeing. I can't recall a trip where the kids haven't climbed on top of a canon, or explored the woods. Upstate New York didn't disappoint.
And yes, we ate.
But mostly we played.
Do you love road trips as much as we do? We have never had a DVD system in our vehicle, so it is always conversation heaven in our van. I absolutely am convinced that the kids' vocabularies increase by a hundred fold from all of the reading they do during road trips, in addition to our games of "Name a word that starts with the letter __"
But yes, I am glad to be home, to sleep in my own bed and to cook in my own kitchen.
She spoiled me! Thank you *so* much Dani for everything! I was so thrilled to find out that she, too, is in Virginia! I'm so tickled to know of another kindred crafty soul.
And this is a peek of the back, what cute fabric.
I think the mug is my new favorite :)
I hope that you all had a wonderful Memorial Day weekend. And that you have all sent good vibes, sweet wishes, or thoughtful prayers to all of our service men and women, past and present, for freedom is never free.
Have a great night, dear friends.
