We arrived home safe and sound and for that we are thankful. I drove Abbie's Honda Civic all the way from Ohio to Utah with my PPP sitting on his pillow on the seat by me....by the way that stands for perfect precious prince....pictures will follow when the computer gets an adjustment. Since adding more memory, something happened, now all pictures posted are very distorted. Now, back to our trip. We had great weather, were able to accomplish all that we had set out to do, enjoyed being guests in Ben and Erin's new home, was able to attend the Dr.'s appointment with Erin to hear the heart beat on the new baby who is expected in 2 month's time.......and spent some time with Ben at his new shop. He was busy setting up all his machines that do all sorts of neat things, and just in time because he has a big list o accomplish. While we were there he was selected to do detailed craftsmen type wood work on a church that Erin has been a member of. The church is beautiful and the stonework on the side of the building dated it's beginning as 1806. Ben is very excited about this job as he is very artistic with wood and finds that to be the most enjoyable part of his work. One more thing to rejoice over.....Abbie and Chad sold their house to the first couple who looked at it, so that is a big relief. the young couple who purchased it, it will be their first home and they are so happy and excited......Abbie feels relief to know that the home she loved will be loved by someone else.
Oh, how I love a rainy day, and I went to bed with rain and woke up to a wonderful gentle rain. The gardens are all expressing their joy and approval with their refreshed look. I've rambled on long enough. The 3 dogs are up and about and I have a bit of bacon tucked away as treats for them.
