I had a really great time at
Robin and Steve's this past week!
Here's a picture of my new buddies,
my niece and nephew, Belle and Noah.
While there we went to the Greenville zoo
in South Carolina. I didn't see any palm
trees, sadly, but it was great being back
in South Carolina. One day I hope to go
back to Charleston.
I didn't write down the name of these guys
but aren't they cool? One is a male,
the other female. I think the female is
the one in the back.
This is a baby giraffe. I think he/she was about
a year old. Not much shorter than mom!
We also went to a nature preserve in
Asheville. this poor bear was so hot. I accidentally
deleted the better picture, sadly, but stuff happens,
I won't bore you with more pictures. Suffice
it to say it was a fun trip. The trip home not
so much. For some reason they funneled off
4 lanes of traffic from I 75 into Monroe Ohio.
No explanation and worse, no detour signs. When
I felt it was probably safe to try to get back on
I ran into an accident before I could get to the
on ramp. It was over an hour before I was back
on my way again. That was annoying. But I
made it there and back safely, so I am very grateful
I should have a card tomorrow to add to the blog.
One more picture to show, though. I forgot.
Robin and I did some crafts while I was there.
She made this tray and I think it turned out
I also bought a little wooden dresser
which I hope to make to match. I've never
done anything like this before, so I hope it
turns out well. While I was there I also
started cross stitching again and found that
I can do it with almost no pain at all! I
go today to get an injection for my shoulder,
but the problem was the radial tunnel I
have in both arms. I'm hoping to make
some nice Christmas presents now that I
can do it again. Hopefully I have time!!!
Where did the summer go anyway?
