We had a very busy weekend!! On Friday, I traveled with my daughter to Charlotte, NC on business. It had been years since I'd been through Charlotte and it has grown so much! On the way back we stopped at a Bob Evans Restaurant to have some supper. The food was great. On a trip to Michigan, many years ago, my husband and I ate at a couple of these restaurants up North. I'm so glad that they have come further South now, but also wish there was one closer to us! My daughter bought me the sheepie above...an early Mother's Day present. On Saturday, my son and I went with her to Winston-Salem, and we stopped at several places, including the "major" Goodwill Store in this area. Wow! So much stuff! But I limited my purchase to two skeins of yarn. I don't get out much these days, so two days of travel and shopping really did me in (heehee). Sunday was relatively quiet. My son wanted to go to the video game store (he doesn't drive), so we went there then picked up some food items on the way home. Someone once said, "It's nice to go, but it's nicer to come home again". I agree. The other photo is of Earl Grey sitting with a stuffed cat. He loves to sleep with stuffed animals. Go figure! God Bless!!

I hope that everyone had a nice Easter last Sunday. Both my (adult) children were on Spring Break from their jobs at the community college last week, and it was a busy time for us. Just a few days before that I had a rather nasty case of food poisoning and then a birthday. I went to my daughter's home (on the side of a mountain) for Easter weekend and enjoyed sitting on her porch and resting. On the way to her house, a baby black bear crossed the road in front of her Jeep. No sign of the momma-bear, and I do hope he or she found mom, as he/she was kind of small! I have been working on some 6 inch quilt blocks from The Farmer's Wife book and finished another Mile-a-Minute afghan from some old yarn called "adobe" and I also used "brick" and "aran" with it. Take time to smell the flowers, but avoid the pollen. Have a blessed Spring!
