It’s me.

I know I’ve been scare around here and over there lately. Yes of course I have great reasons

My classes are finishing up, our trip has ended and I’m ready to buckle down and get back to you—my dear internets.

Oh the trip? You mean the surprise trip I didn’t tell y’all about? Yes, we traveled to Savannah Georgia for Thanksgiving. Picture perfect weather the whole time we were there, lovery place (it’s okay for you to be jealous).

On Thanksgiving, when almost every place was closed, we packed up the cooler with some beef B-O-L-O-G-N-A, some bread, pickles, apples and waters drove over the big-huge a$$ed bridge to Hilton Head, South Carolina and had a picker-nic on the beach. Baby girl’s first time to see the Atlantic.

Then on Friday we drove down to St. Augustine Florida, sorry to say it was way tourist trapish, but we didn’t mind and had a good time anyways. Cause we are that kind of people.

Drove back to Georgia to see Aunt Nonie and Uncle Dan. They are doing fine by the way.

Then we went back to Florida, I know this whole back and forth zig zaggy thing. Only this time it was so we could come home. Weather was still beautiful (jealous-I see it in y’alls eyes)

My classes, I win! I am so smart now I can hardly contain my brain inside my skull anymore. I mean my eyes are practically bulging as if I had some kind of illness. Haha I knew you could picture that without a photo.

It’s cool enough to work in my studio more, okay so it has been for a while, I just didn’t tell you cause I was Arting (not Farting) in my spare time instead of visiting y’all, my dear internets. Oh did I mention about the November Poem A Day Challenge? Yeah I did that too and I’m most likely too in love with some of them. Y’all know it’s not good to be in love with your words and junk. Ah well, it’s good to be Queen of my own Paradise Valley. And I need to pick some and submit ‘em for the Chap book challenge portion of the gig.

Yes I have stopped doing any new photos over on my 365 Views by Me blog. See it wasn’t just y’all that I neglected. And who knows maybe I’ll have an announcement of some sort in January or something.

No! I’m not gonna have a baby, but we are waiting for grandchild number 9 to arrive, almost just any time now…so with that I’m outta here for now. Cross your fingers that I’ll be by soon to read ya if not sooner.


ps I have missed y'all...Did y'all miss me?

Sounds like a lovely trapse about the South! My Daughter has visited Savannah, years ago. My Sister went on a Ghost tour in St Augustine. Her n another sis live near Clearwater.
Glad your child finally witnessed the grand pond of the Atlantic seashore! Get in a boat, head straight out a bit, then turn left n keep sailing 1,000 miles to hit Cape Cod where Oi am, but there's no warmth here now...
#9 ! How Fine! Don't name the child Clementine!
Of course we missed you!

The vacation pictures do paint a very pretty view for us and yes, I am quite jealous of anyone experiencing warm weather these days! I'm sure you've mentioned the grandchildren before but for some reason or other, your statement of waiting for #9 to arrive just kind of threw me for a bit of a loop!

karen said...

Yes! Missed you! But the pics are glorious! So glad you had a trip!

Daisy said...

Oh I am so jealous!! Florida, Georgia, the Carolinas! I'd take any of them over cold Ohio right now. I love the beach. :-) Sounds like you had a grand trip. Good for you! Good for you with the poetry too. I hope you post some of it here. Have a good weekend!

Paige, I'm so jealous of all your wisdom! Since it's spilling out your ears why don't you throw some my way ? :) Seriously, congratulations on completing the class, now pop open the bubbly!

I visited Savannah this past summer, (you might remember, I got a picture of ghosts at Ft. Pulaski). It was so HOT then, I wish we'd gone when you did. But it was a fantastic trip, so gorgeous and everyone is so nice there. I have to ask - why in Hades did you go to Hilton Head when Tybee is so much closer? And less crowded! You're out of your mind girl. But Hilton is beautiful, the whole area is beautiful, I wish I lived there.

Welcome back, glad you had a great trip. Congrats in the new gk (that's grand kid, in case you couldn't guess) on the way.
