Summing it Up...

Now, that I'm way on the wrong side of sixty, I feel that being true to self is important. "I yam, what I yam." Kindness and smiles are to be given away. Women are strong. Men are more vulnerable than we believe. Husbands may come and go...but one thing I know for sure is that I will NEVAH live without a corgi or coffee in my life if I can prevent it. Come piles of dog fur or hot water!

Chapel Hill for April's 33 rd~

We spent a second day driving on the Blue Ridge Parkway on Thursday. The sun was out, making it an entirely different experience from Wednesday's rainy day. The colors of Spring, the split rail fencing, the panorama vistas, just made us ooh and ahh. Who needs another country to tour, when America offers so much to see first?

Muggy weather in NC, tomorrow it's supposed to be 90! I'm here until Tuesday at April's house to spend time with her and lil' Emmy. Tonight we all went to a Japanese Steakhouse which was great fun, and the food was terrific too. Jim found yet another way to enjoy steak and shrimp, and lil' Emmy just ate everything!

Tomorrow, we're having a Stampin' Up class here at April's. She is a demonstrator for fun, which is a great stress breaker for her work in oncology, and supports her creative habits! Tomorrow evening we have tickets to go see Garrison Keillor, and his Prairie HOme Companion show in Durham.

Jim is staying out in the woodsy campground, just down the road from John and Elizabeth Edwards compound. The ticks have been on the dogs already, so he'll have to be diligent in checking them after each potty outing. He has internet access, and a loads of cable tv channels out there, so he should be a happy camper for a few days, while I party with my girls.

Well you must be in seventh heaven gettin' to stay with your daughter and granddaughter over Mother's Day and all the way to next Tuesday! How fun!

I'm sure your hubby will enjoy the time in the woods without you -- he can be lord and master of the remote and the RV and just have a fine time!

Sorry to hear about those ticks, aren't they awful. UGH.

I agree with ODP - you must be in
7th Heaven there with April and Emmy. I'm thrilled for you too.

Going to see the show you've alwayes waated to see - I'll have to look him up.

Happy Mother's Day - happy birthday to April.

Enjoy, enjoy, enjoy.

Tell Jim to be careful of those ticks.

So glad you are getting to see your DD and DGD, how sweet of Jim to stay and let you enjoy your time with them.
You take care and have fun, but watch those stupid ticks, they like human blood too and can make you mighty sick..

Y'all come back now...

Y'all come back now...

Everyone is special, and counts!
