I got back to NC from NJ at about 6:45 p.m. last night. We had left at 7:30 a.m.! Long trip! The girls slept almost all the way home so I did almost all the driving. I didn't mind though they needed the sleep. They had been at the wedding until really late the night before, so me driving was the better option-LOL! I had a really nice visit with my parents, my sisters and their families and 3 of my friends. I went to lunch at The Tea Hive with my Mom and one of my sisters! I love that place! They have a tea there called Vanilla Cream Spice and it is to die for! I had 2 pots of it. I didn't get much reading time in and not many pictures either, which was too bad. They had so much rain this year that the leaves didn't seem to be changing very much but they were just dropping. I thought I could get some really beautiful pictures. I will post what pictures I did take tonight. I was able to help my Dad with some things in his shop while I was there and he cut out the circles in copper that I needed to make some more earrings. He kind of made it his mission to figure out how to cut through the heavier copper and he did it! So now I've got 37 disk of copper to make earrings, necklaces or bracelets. I was a little worried about my Mom, she is having blood pressure problems. The Drs. put her on 2 patches of high blood pressure meds and I think it is too much for her. She keeps falling asleep during the day and then can't sleep at night. She is calling the Dr. today. Hopefully they will get it adjusted correctly for her.
I was so glad to see John, I had really missed him while I was gone. Hopefully the next time he can come with us. Teddy also missed me, he went bananas when I walked through the door! It is so nice to be loved by my men-LOL!!
I missed keeping in touch with all of you too! I hope everyone is doing well. Have a great day!
My husband, John and I went to Ireland for our 25th Wedding Anniversary in 2004. We had an awesome trip and we will never forget it. We actually got to visit our friends who live in Northern Ireland. We spent 3 wonderful days with them! The picture above was taken when we visited The Ring of Kerry. The beauty of Ireland is just spectacular! If you ever get a chance visit there.
Megan is my oldest daughter. She and Ken were married on April 12, 2008. It was a wonderful ceremony and reception!
