The Long Week has Ended

And it was especially long because I'm going home tomorrow!!  The days positively dragged!

Penny was all sweet and lovey-dovey having finally gotten over three trips to the vet in just a few weeks.  Imagine her surprise when I dropped her off again today.  She was probably thinking, "What have I done now?!!"  She'll be in good hands while I'm gone, but it'll take a week after I get back before she wants to love on me again.

I'm so excited about seeing my family.  It's been two years.  The newest member, Wyatt, was born today, 8 lbs, 13 ozs, and a head full of blond hair.  Yes, he takes after me!!  :)  :)

The quilt didn't make it to the quilter, but I'll get that done first thing when I get back.  I hope he doesn't mind his old aunt being a little late.  Nah, he won't mind!

I'm going to be looking at properties while I'm down there.  Must start thinking about where I'll retire.  That is, after all, creeping closer and closer.  The top thing on the list of must-haves - a studio!  I want to be a dottering old lady just quilting away in my retirement years!  So my schedule is full of realty appointments, birthdays, and sight-seeing plans.

Tomorrow I'll be eating good food, listening to folks who talk right, and *enjoying* the humidity.

It absolutely does not get any better than that!

I thought about you all day today knowing that tomorrow you'd be getting on a jet plane. I'm so excited for you and can't wait to hear all about it. Take notes because I don't want you to forget one tidbit. :-)

Have fun, dear Vicky, you deserve it.

Have a great time! I think that's exciting that you're going to be looking for a future home, how nice that you will be able to retire by your family.

Have a wonderful time "back home", Vicky! Sending prayers that you find just the right house, with a studio, to retire to. Give Don and Gail {{{HUGS}}} and prayers for me, okay?
Love you, Sweet Friend!

Have a wonderful time and I hope you find a place that is just right for you among people you love. I think that gets more important the older we get.

Safe travels and happy studio shopping. That was my priority on this house, I told the realtor I had a pool table, cus he couldn't wrap his head around a longarm quilt machine.
