Home Sweet Home

I have to say watching the snowfall for two days was a rare treat for us while on vacation!!
A whole lot of good snacking went on by the fire while we watched both seasons of Downton Abby.
We did venture out once for groceries and some antiquing
I decided Hexie's would be my project during the trip
The durn things take sew long to make!
And my GF was able to sort all of her piles of photo's!!! What a huge project!!
 
I gave up trying to post while on vacation, my laptop and their server just didn't want to play nicely together.
 
We had a wonderful peaceful time on our yearly trip this go round and spent next to NOTHING!! Ha, that's not hard to do when you have two southern girls hold up in a warm cabin while the snow was flying. The snow was and unexpected special surprise, staying in PJ's all day doesn't seem quite so lazy when your snowed in!!
 
We did get out and about a little bit to check out some local antique stores but just as we figured the prices were too high, still it was fun to look. We usually take a picnic lunch while riding the Smoky Mt parkway each year but it was a no go with over a foot of snow predicted. Instead we did lots of eating, napping, hand sewing, sorting, and snacking. I didn't even bring my sewing machine in from the car!! I have had a relapse of this terrible head cold the grands keep passing around, sure as heck didn't feel like trying to read a pattern or put things together. Working on hexies it was for me.
 
Back to reality today with a long to do list. First off is to get the snow/salt junk off my car, grocery shopping for Easter, and sort this pile of mail on the counter. I also need to get our spending plan set for the next 2 weeks and return a few calls that came in while we were away. Nothing earth shattering just another normal day at Home Sweet Home!!
 
I do have some blog candy to share tomorrow, stay tuned!

  1. Welcome home, Debby. Happy you had a sew relaxing time with the girls, but nasty business that cold has returned. My son is suffering terrible with one right now. Snow you had snow ... I knew I had to get rid of it somewhere. Hahaha

  2. Gosh! that sounds like so much fun and so relaxing....talk about De-stressing oneself! Snow is still around here in Spain too but further up north and Madrid particularly...it has seemed like a colder more blustery winter this year.

    Ha! Ha! I totally agree about the pjs excuse LOL!

    keep well

    Amanda :-)

  5. It sounds like you had a wonderful time away. I love it when you can get away and do nothing if you feel like it. Quilting and snacking and Downton Abby- can it get any better than that? xo Diana
