A Lot Going ON…

Since the Surprise post…. there has  been a few days of quiet and many days hectic of activity!!!! Some sewing, some cleaning, some family, some travel, some baseball and some holidays, and site seeing!!!

SEWING…. (I’ll tell a bit more about these projects in another post)

no pictures of cleaning…. well because who really wants to see that? and none of travel, because it was a quick trip back to Chicagoland.

FAMILY…. this little guy, Darling Grandson (DSG), just 2- and his parents , moved to the area in the middle of April. So we have spent lots of time with family!! I have a Sister in Law and her family here, and an Aunt and family here as well! Some of my missing time has been spent one on one with the DSG….

BASEBALL….  in addition to moving, we have taken in some baseball- our 7 year old nephew at Little League and of course the Nationals!!!

MEMORIA DAY…. We were on the Mall and witnessed Rolling Thunder-200,000+ motorcycles rolling in a protest ride and honors our HEROs

we also honored our HEROs with carnations. This was at the WW2 memorial.


SIGHT SEEING…. some canons from Harpers Ferry West Virginia

and the new monument to Martin Luther King. It is very striking, both in size and concept.

So now you know why things have been very quiet on the blog… but I will endeavor to be more…. informative… and post more pictures.

More Later--
