Strangely Quiet...


It's suddenly very quiet in my house. The boss just left with our daughter to head to college. He's going to be up in New England next week on business and timed his trip to be able to take Ellen up to Johnson & Wales in Providence, RI. They had planned to leave tomorrow morning, stop at the Mystic Aquarium on their way up and then get into Providence at dinner time. Tropical Storm Hanna changed their plans, so they're heading to Mystic tonight to avoid the drive in the rain and wind tomorrow. After visiting the aquarium, they'll continue on to Providence when the weather lets up some tomorrow. I'll miss her, but I'm willing to bet I hear from her just about every day. And if I don't, I'll be calling her!
Grace will spend the weekend recovering from her first three days of high school (which she loves!) and watching horror movies. I'll be quilting and cleaning. Do I know how to have fun?

You DO know how to have fun! That's the kind of fun I'll be having this weekend. Good luck with the rainy weather!

That looks like a very pretty campus. I bet it's steeped in history. What grand adventures she will have.

Happy weekend!

I hope they really enjoy their time together. Mystic is one of my favorite spots to visit.

Ah - forget the cleaning and just go with the quilting - lol ! Have a great weekend xx

I know it will be hard, but enjoy the time to yourself. The cleaning can wait! LOL! :o)

Have you battened down the hatches for Hannah? Hopefully we won't get socked too much with the heavy rain and high winds they are predicting. Heck, we're only getting the residuals. I can't imagine what NC will deal with...

Quilty Hugs!

i hear turning on a metronome and putting it just out of reach is the surest way to cure that high schoolitis

I haven't been to Mystic Seaport in so long! I'll have to go again someday. If I'm ever back east again.
