Busy Weekend!!



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!!

Nice pictures, glad you had some"out" time and enjoyed it. Earl Grey is an handsome cat, one of the most handsome, I've seen in a while. Cute sheep too! The quilt the sheep is sitting on is also pretty, know you made it. Take care and have a blessed day!

Look at Mr. Grey. Boy is he getting big. Giggle I like to sleep with stuffed animals too and that one is really cute!

We missed you on sheep shearing day but looks like y'all had a good time in Charlotte. Love Earl Gray, what a handsome laddie.

Sounds like a wonderful trip. But it is always nice to come home.
