I'm Home.....

My Mum, sister and brother in law and I have just returned from a two week vacation to visit a cousin in North West Louisiana. We had a nice time with her and her family. We then travelled to New Orleans and drove along the coast to Florida. Making our way north, we drove through the Smoky Mountains to Gatlinburg and Pigeon Forge and then home.




It is so nice to get away from the cold weather and not having to wear a coat. I would like to think that we have brought the sunny warmer weather home with us.


Yesterday was so warm I worked in my garden, it was nice to get dirt under my finger nails again. There are signs of Spring everywhere, see the photos of my wind flowers, violets, daffodils and crocus. This morning a noticed a robin had started to build her nest in my honeysuckle.


Now I need to get in front of my sewing machine, I have blocks to make for my next guild meeting, finish the binding on my Granddaughters quilt, start the quilt for my guest bedroom, finish two wall hangings, finish my Indian Orange Peel quilt. I bought more fabric while on vacation, as if I needed it, it was a bargain, so how could I pass that up. With all those UFO's, the windows to clean, the lawn should need it's first cut soon, I have two cars that need a good clean, and the list goes on and on, can we make the days a little longer so that I can get this all done.!!

Welcome back and your holiday sounds just right after the long winter. It is always good to get back into routine refreshed and ready to tackle those chores which always seem to be waiting for us.

Glad you are home. I've been to the beautiful places you visited, my Daddy's home was in the rural Appalachia mountains, I know it was a wonderful getaway!

Are those photos of flowers in your garden now? If so you are a lucky duck as other than a couple of crocuses, everything else has decided to hibernate!!

Love Tenneesse, it's been three years since we were last year, hoping to go next year.
