We got back home this afternoon. The trip was uneventful, the weather was great, and the roads were bare and dry. By dinnertime, the house was filled with kids, grandkids and great-grandson, so I did what any loving Grandma/Mom would do....ordered pizza. Actually, my daughter Amy, and son Scott treated the entire family to the pizza fest.
I'm exhausted, after a ten hour drive yesterday, and an eight hour drive today. Annie and Otto are already sound asleep. I said I wasn't going to let them sleep in the bed any more, since they did so well on the floor in Arizona, but I caved. They were so happy to get home, the first place they checked out was the bed! I don't have the heart to move them now.
Granddaughter Alicyn wasn't a bit shy when she saw us. She was happy Gamma and Gampa were back from "Zara-ona".
I had some Harvest Monday photos to share with you today, but I really need to get to bed. Tomorrow is another day, and hopefully all internet connection woes are a thing of the past. I want all of you to know that I read and appreciated all of your comments, even though I wasn't able to respond to them directly. Thanks to my daughter Amy for publishing them for me, and for calling me to read them over the phone each day. She's a good girl :-)
Welcome home! Glad you are back safe and sound!ReplyDelete
So glad you're home! Get some rest! ~grin~ReplyDelete
Welcome back, Granny! Looking forward to reading more regular posts from you. Glad you had a good trip. It's so sweet to see family after so long away.ReplyDelete
And, from yours and everyone elses' reaction, I'm thinking Washington is where you should stay! So happy you made it home safely. And thank goodness for GOOD INTERNET!!!!
(can you tell I'm happy your home too??)
I was thinking yesterday that it was Valentines Day so Granny must be on the road. I'm glad the trip was so uneventful. Welcome home. Now I'm going to dig up your address which I have somewhere and send you the seeds I owe you.ReplyDelete
Glad you had a safe and joyful home coming.. Blessings..ReplyDelete
Welcome back! Your just in time for spring.:)ReplyDelete
WELCOME HOME! We will still be here for your harvest another day. Take it easy. Glad you are safe and sound.ReplyDelete
You are a grandmother after my own heart, ordering in pizza. Welcome back! Your description sounds like a return to heaven, and I'm glad for you. Now, if you can just get some of this beautiful weather we're having, I can almost hear the long happy sighs.ReplyDelete
Lissa, Heidi, Alison, Sue, Sharon, Mr. H., Barbie and Dianefaith, good morning all! I had a good night's sleep, ready to get to work today unloading, unpacking, and trying to remember where things go in the WA house! It was soooooo nice to get up to a morning paper with my coffee, and and immediate and fast internet connection. I still have grocery shopping to attend to, and must wash my bedding and give the dogs a bath! They snuggled with me last night, but they smelled awfully doggy....whew!ReplyDelete
Daphne, the bean seeds look good, but some of them have turned brownish. I'll sort out the pretty ones and send them, I wonder if the brownish ones were those that weren't quite dry when I picked them. I imagine you're still under snow and in no hurry to get them planted ;-)
Oh yeah - Granny is home! Yippee! I don't know if anyone is more excited than me! I so need inspiration (and learning!) for my spring and summer gardens.ReplyDelete
I'm reading - everyday, Granny! My gardens await...(and boy do they need help)
(Farmer is jumping up and down! Shouting, "Granny is home!")
I'm glad your "off the Road again" :o) Get a little rest and then get busy with Spring doings and get those dogs off your bed..Be the pack leader..ReplyDelete
Happy Homecoming & Happy Valentine's Day!!!ReplyDelete
Now, no more going to Zara-ona!!!
Welcome home! I bet it was nice to see your family again.ReplyDelete
I know you have lots to do, but please find time to rest up after your long journey.
Farmer, you have to be my most enthusiastic follower! It might take me a few days to get back into the groove, but we'll be discussing gardening before you know it. Hang in there, baby ;-)ReplyDelete
Ginny, too late. I gave them a bath today and washed my bedding, so we're smellin' good for a while! If they are going to sleep with me, they're going to have to bathe every sheet washing day.
Robin and Rachel, I'm well rested today, dogs are bathed, laundry is almost done, and I'll be heading out for groceries soon. I figure I'll be back in the groove by Friday, if not sooner.
Welcome back!!! I am excited to see what your garen brings you this year.ReplyDelete
Wow you ARE back quick! I'm excited to see what you grow this year :)ReplyDelete
Welcome home, Granny!ReplyDelete
Nartaya, Erin, Bethany & Vic, thanks for the welcome back! I'm very, VERY happy to be home. My garden is a mess, but it looks good to me, anyway. I can't hardly wait to get out there and begin the cleanup....but it's raining now.ReplyDelete
Glad you are home! Looking forward to seeing more posts soon!ReplyDelete
I won't be planting bean seeds until May. I've got all the time in the world.ReplyDelete
So glad you made it home safely! I had a feeling the dog banishment from the bed was not likely to stick. :DReplyDelete
