Family Reunion


I can't believe that school has already been out for almost two weeks, and I have only spent two days at home. The day after school was out, Joe and I went to Saltville, Virginia for his family reunion. Here we all are at his cousin Emily's house. (or at least part of the family). We had a great time. The day after we came back from Virginia, I headed to my parents house in Mississippi. It was great to see my parents. I also got to spend time with some cousins that I don't get to see that often. In addition to visiting with family, I also did lots of odd jobs around my parents house. My dad is doing much better, but will never be able to do the things that he once did.
I came back to Atlanta yesterday, to an almost finished kitchen. At least now I can cook in the kitchen. I spent most of the day trying to put everything back in the cabinets. I don't know how it happened but we have less cabinet space now that we did before. That is a small price to pay for an updated kitchen. Hope to have some photos to post in a day or two.
I am ready to get to some sewing. Since everything from the kitchen was in my sewing room, I can clean it now and hopefully start working on a few projects. I have two tops that I have to finish sewing the borders on, then they will be ready to take to get quilted.

What a great picture! We always forget to take a group picture when our family is all together. We remember the kids, but not all the adults.

So glad that you have a kitchen again. Now you can use your crock pot where it belongs, instead of ironing with it.

Hope to see you soon!
