It's been a wonderful week

Since my last post I have had the pleasure of seeing old friends and family.

 We had a guest from MD for a couple of days. He and my husband have kept in touch since they served together in Vietnam in 1970-71. We get to see each other every few years.

Then I went to a family reunion in western PA where I got to see family from as far away as Wyoming and Texas...what a great time we had!  It was held in the town where my grandmother lived.

After the reunion, we went to the mountains of PA near Tionesta  and Cook Forest State Park to my brother's mountain cabin where we stayed the night. ....then home again to DE. What a whirlwind trip but oh so much fun.








To add to my fun,  I also was the winner of a great giveaway gift from Kelly at  I Have a Notion. I am  a great fan of Eleanor Burns and was so happy to win her latest book....I had a little time to scan through it and I already have some wonderful ideas! Today she is telling about another fantastic giveaway.
