Well, yeah, I am back in Texas, as of yesterday evening, but I was too zonked out to post last night. I brought in my suitcase and purse, put them on my bed, and went into the living room, turned on the tevee to watch, leaned back in my recliner and that was lights out until about three hours later. I woke up and took my night time medications, put my eye drops in for my Glaucoma, and went back to my recliner for the night. I did have supper at the local KFC when I got in from the airport.
My daughter, Carol's, neighbor, Linda, picked me up at the airport and took me back to Carol's; I picked up my car there and headed to KFC. I was glad to be back home, even though I had tremendously enjoyed my visit to Tennessee.
While I was there, I got to visit with several good teacher friends (Phyllis, Carolyn, Carolyn, and JoAnn); I visited with my good friend, Ina Ray, who is still recovering from cancer; I visited with my good friend, Judy, who is recovering from major back surgery. I stayed most nights with my sister-in-law, Mae, who has been in my family since I was four years old, so I have known her forever as long as I can remember. I was able to see my niece and nephew (Norma and Fred) while at Mae's home. I visited with my sister in law, Imazo, and she is doing well.
I also spent Saturday night in New Market at a bed and breakfast, called The Minnis House. You can find it online. Just type The Minnis House at New Market, TN into your browser and you will find it. It is owned locally by Christian friends of mine. My daughters went to school with them. If you are ever that way, it is a lovely place to spend a night or two. They serve an old-fashioned country breakfast, too. Yum! Then on Sunday morning, I went to worship at my old church at New Market and saw a lot of my friends there.
I was able to spend some time with my some of my friends I went to Carson Newman with back in the sixties (fifty years ago-- wow!) ( Ginger and Gwen) Also I spent an evening with my neighbors from when I lived in New Market, the Benjamin family. It was wonderful to see everyone and I enjoyed all my visits tremendously. I was going to take a lot of pictures, but changed my mind. I just wanted to keep the memories in my heart.
Today, we are celebrating my birthday and Mother's day at Andrew and Julia's with breakfast. It will be wonderful to see every one there. It will be the whole family together as they haven't been for a while.
I'll bet my flower bed needs watering and I wrote some checks for bills this morning early. My suitcase is still lying on my bed, unpacked....oh, well... Going to the Artisan this afternoon to see "The Importance of Being Ernest". Tomorrow is Sunday School and church. I might get around to unpacking tomorrow afternoon. I'll think about that tomorrow, because "After all, tomorrow is another day..." :)
This is Blabbin' Grammy signing off for today. Much love to each of you, my friends and family. Bye for now. More later.
