Family Visits

My goodness, what a lovely time I have been having!! My youngest daughter and her son (my youngest grandson) have been visiting from New York. Her visits are always too short but not this time. We managed to get into quite a bit. 

On Sunday we attended a family cookout at my middle daughter's house. It was to celebrate Shirley's birthday. The backyard was filled with laughter, fun and kids running everywhere. 

Monday, we still were in the celebrating mood... this time a birthday dinner at Smithfield Station. 

Tuesday, Susan helped me organize my closet. I wish we had taken before and after pictures but we didn't. There wasn't any pictures, either, of me trying on every single piece of clothing I own!! I now have a stack of clothes ready for Goodwill or some such place.  And, you won't believe how beautiful my closet is now!! 

We also went to lunch at Amici's. Great bread sticks. Oh my.... 

Today Susan and Tighe drove off. So sad to see them go.

Frantic Friday

* I am busy this morning (well, not this very minute because I am on the computer) but I am expecting my youngest daughter and her youngest son (my youngest grandson) to arrive this afternoon for a visit. I am all excited.

* Did you see the strawberry moon (on Summer soltice) the other night? It won't happen again in my (and probably your) lifetime, not on the soltice, so I definately took advantage of the opportunity. Not much to see but at least I can say I did see it!

* My fellow's been gone visiting family and came back yesterday. Lordy mercy, my eyes started watering, my nose running and I got some bags under my eyes. We finally figured out that with that hello hug and kiss.... I am allergic to his brand new after-shave.

* On our daughter-mom "out to lunch" the other day we went in a little shop called Beyond Main, meaning of course, that it is just off Main Street in Smithfield, Va. I saw this cute little bag I just had to have. You can see them in this picture. They are made out of recycled yoga mats!!

* My fellow brought me a bag of peaches. He bought them somewhere in the Carolina on his way home from Georgia. I am thinking peach cobbler!!

I am linking with Willy Nilly Friday. Well, I guess I won't be linking up because Tanya's on vacation but the post is done so here it is!!

and don't forget to check out my daughter and my blog Out To Lunch. In a couple days we'll have our latest adventure posted.

Birds and Beach

I have two pictures I would like to share on Wild Bird Wednesday and Outdoors Wednesday. I will be linking to Saturday Critters later. 

The first one is of a peacock I spied walking through the Bronx Zoo a year or two ago. We were there for a fund-raiser for Autism and he was one curious bird, checking out the goings on. 

and this one is of a foggy morning at Nags Head, North Carolina. Wouldn't mind a cup of tea there right this very minute. 

Have a great Wednesday and stop by to visit the two above memes. You will be glad you did!
