There is nothing like travel and company to rearrange blogging life!
Let's catch up is right!
Here is a collage of all the hand work Mom and I accomplished!
And here is the reason for the visit!
There is nothing like some one on one time.
And meeting the youngest member of the family was just a special bonus!
On the flight home, I worked on a new Tuxie Love pair of socks.
This one is for my grand daughter for her Calico cat!
Knit in Wandering Cat Yarns in the Dramatique colorway, Alley Cat base.
While I was gone, lightening struck this palm right next to our garage
and caused quite a stir in the household!
Smoke alarms started screaming 'Fire!' and children and adults ran to comfort and assess.....well, you can only imagine!
Florida isn't called the lightening capital of the world for nothing!
While there wasn't any structural damage or fire,
it did mess with appliances-
it blew the internet (router fried), it blew the dish for tv (black box and roof dish), the dryer works but blew the timer, the water filtering system lost it's brains (replaceable at least) and it blew the alternator on my vehicle parked in the garage.
Our last home was hit three times with lightening!
I had felt we were safe here.........reality can be painful!
We are replacing and repairing everything at this point!
So thankful for handy husband!
I will mention that AT &T sent a new router overnight
but Dish wasn't interested in any timeliness
and made everyone wait a week for a technician.
Not great customer service by ph or email either.
Boo to you Dish!
It was great to be home and see everyone again!
My youngest son and family came for a visit to pick up some things we had stored for them (and to see their GA loves before they left!)
On Sat morning, daughter-in-law and I managed a painting outing
and produced these!
How fun to laugh and create and enjoy some quiet together!
On to my normal life again.......
