Back to the Mountains!!!!

I got up really early this morning and had the car packed by 5:30am. I didn't want to be rushed trying to pack the car and leave for work. I have to be at work at 7:30am this morning, so I think I will have plenty of time to get the rest of my things done here. I will leave from work this afternoon when I get off and drive up to my sister's house. It just takes around 2 hours, so it is an easy drive.

I don't especially like to drive in the rain, but I guess I don't have any choice. It has been raining here since yesterday and I believe the rain is here to stay for awhile, according to the weather man. It looks like I will be driving up in the rain and coming home in the rain. There is rain in the forecast for the next week. I know we need it really bad, but I hate rainy weekends. Don't you?

Tomorrow, my Mom, sister and I are going to a Quilt Show. For those of you who don't know me very well, I LOVE to make quilts. I have sewn ever since I was a little girl. My Grandmothers both loved to sew and my Dad's Mother made quilts. It is her old house that my parents live in as their summer home in the mountains. That house holds many wonderful memories for me as a child visiting my Grandparents. It now holds many memories for my children as the summer vacation home they visit my parents in.
I am looking forward to seeing all the beautiful quilts at the Quilt Show. It is always fun to see what other people have done and to be inspired!

I always love spending time with my family. My sweet sister and I love talking and visiting with each other. I am so glad that we live close to each other and can spend a lot of time together.

I am slowly learning how to use my new camera, but have not had time to upload any pictures yet onto the computer. I have worked a lot of overtime this week on my Nanny job and have not had much time in the evenings to work with the camera. Are there ever enough hours in the day? I promise I will get some pictures uploaded and posted soon. I did take some pictures at the beach that I want to share. Plus, I will try to take some this weekend if the weather permits. It doesn't sound very promising for outside activities.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY to my sweet blogger friend, Joyce. (Tales from This Side of the Pond) Her birthday is this weekend. Joyce has just recently moved back to the states from England after living there for 6 years. I loved reading about her adventures while she was there and now I am still enjoying reading about her travels in the US and how she is adjusting to life back in the states. She is precious and if you have never visited her blog, please do so! I hope you have a wonderful weekend, Joyce!!!

To all of my other blogger friends, I hope this finds you well and that you have an amazing weekend too. My life is wild and crazy as always, but I wouldn't have it any other way. It keeps me going trying to keep up with my girls and share in the joy of their lives!!!

Love & blessings to you all!

Just a quick note to let you all know that I am OK. I have been so BUSY lately with my new job, getting my daughter moved and settled at college, my camera being broken, etc. that I am sorry to say that I have not been posting on my blog. I have been reading and keeping up with your blogs as much as possible, but just not posting on my own.

Guess what? I just got myself a new camera. YEA!!! So now I am going to spend the weekend trying to learn how to use it. For those of you who know me well, this is no surprise; (LOL) but I am very technologically challenged. I would rather take a beating than have to learn how to use my new camera. I hate stuff like that. I will persevere though and get back into posting pictures for my blog!!! I got a Sony camera and it is so tiny and cute!!!

I am off to the beach today (near Myrtle Beach, SC) to have a fun "girl weekend" with one of my dear friends. She invited me down to share her beautiful beach house for the weekend. Our little dog Holly is going with me. We will have a wonderful time. I can't wait!!! I hope you all have an amazing weekend yourselves.

Love & blessings,
