Everything is very quiet here today, (except for the television in the living room running at full blast, since Gramps is really getting hard of hearing).
I actually didn't get up for good until nearly 9 a.m. We went into Knoxville yesterday afternoon to get together with family and when we left it was storming a whole lot! It was quite difficult driving through the rain, because the water was all over the highway, and falling in sheets (maybe even a few pillowcases).
I was so tense while driving that sometime in the middle of the night I woke up with cramps in both legs and so I just lay quietly hoping the cramps would go away, and eventually they did. When I got up at seven to make a pit stop, I went back to bed and didn't wake up again until almost 9 a.m.
When I got up at 9 this morning, I remembered I had promised Gramps last night that I would "make breakfast" this morning. Thus, I proceeded to do so, and got him up at nearly 10 to eat.
Last night at Hugh's, we had a wonderfully delicious supper that I know Imazoe must have worked all day in the kitchen to prepare. Yum! The menu consisted of: Mac and Cheese; mashed potatoes, green beans, ham, turkey, rolls, chicken planks, and topped off with cake and ice cream. She also had all kinds of things to drink (nope, no alcoholic beverages - our family doesn't do those).
She had invited a lot of people, some of whom Gramps and I had never met, but they were on the family side of Peggy, Jeff's wife (a dear lady, by the way). There will be pictures when I get them sent to me. There will also be more about the get-together when I do get them. I do know we all had a wonderful time.
I have one picture of the get together that I would like to post. It is a picture of Hugh, his son, Jeff, and Jeff's sons, Jonathan, Andrew, and Thomas. As you may be able to tell, Tom and Jon are twins. Andrew is the oldest son and is married. The twins are still single.
There are also a couple of pictures I wish to post that are of the new used furniture that I got yesterday from Mark and Allie. We are really pleased with it. It makes our living room look larger as well.
I guess I will go and do some more stitching on Matt's quilt in a little while. This is Blabbin' Grammy signing off for today. More tomorrow..Christmas is only 4 days away now. God bless each of you. Bye for now.
