Anyway, this past week has been full to the brim. Let's get a quick recap. At the end of May, my daughter Holly and her 4-year-old son Alexander came to live with us temporarily. Having a young'un in the house after so many years of an empty nest is
Last Friday morning, Darrell and I left for WV to visit my birth mother and other family. We had a good trip--which means no bad weather, no backed up traffic, and no vehicle maintenance issues. My mother and sister had warned us that they lived in the country and they were not kidding! If you look in the dictionary under 'back of beyond', there will be a picture of their little town. The closest hotel was 30 mins away and the nearest McDonald's and Walmart a little farther. Despite this--or maybe because of it--we hung around the house and ate and talked and laughed and ate some more. It was a wonderful visit and I'm so very glad we went. I think bonds were strengthened and memories were made.

My friend Liz and I rented a booth at a local flea market just before our trip and we spent several days this week getting it set up. You'll probably get sick of hearing about "Lizzy and the Bee". It's been a hoot so far and I've already sold some stuff! You can like us on Facebook, if you're so inclined--and I hope you are.
Guess that's it in a nutshell for the time being. Only other news is that we seem to be living near the gates of hell lately and the prediction for next week is that someone will push us over the edge and slam that gate! The high for Monday is supposed to be 97! I will indeed be inside under the AC!
