I Am Coming Home

I have not had Internet this past week. I am in withdrawal.

Really, haven't had time for the Internet until my little guy shut his eyes at night ........... and I went to sleep with him! I am looking forward to going home today. It has been wonderful to be with my kids and their kids, but I miss my little home with he who will be at the airport when I land and my four legged friends.

Yesterday was a domestic day for me. I cooked all day long for my family. It brought back memories of cooking for my kids when they were all at home. Country style steak, mashed potatoes and gravy, collard greens, spinach souffle and honey glazed carrots and cake. I dropped Gavin off at school and went to the grocery store. It was so peaceful as I shopped in the huge store. I strolled leisurely down each and every aisle.

As I loaded my bounty in the car, I spied a JoAnn's!! I didn't have milk and it was nice and chilly outside........ and I felt it would just be wrong not to go in. So.... I did. I took in the magic aroma of fabric just waiting to be cut. Then I saw the 50% off signs!!! I was in heaven. I drove my cart straight to the fabric that was calling my name. I won't say just how much I bought since he who is in charge of the kampground in my absence does read this. I will say that the suitcase I emptied of presents is now full again. Oh, if you are buying fabric to make clothing with in Minnesota it is tax free!!! I feel justified!! It is lovely, my fabric, and I am already planning in my mind.


Can't post pictures. I cannot find my camera charger or the cord to download. I have searched this entire house. I just hope it turns up here at some point. I unpacked some of the boxes from the move and I hope I didn't accidentally throw them away. I am off to the airport now and will be home this afternoon with my dogs at my side while I visit my favorite blogs!

welcome home. especially with a stuffed suitcase full of fabric. what a deal! I love fabric stores.

I was in the city for two days without my computer. I was quite busy and didn't really have time for it, but I missed not having it there.

As good as it is to go away, coming home is the best. Now I'm anxious to see what you are doing with the new fabric. I know it will be incredible.
