I'm Back!

Just got back from being away for 6 days. Went to Philly to see my younger daughter Stephanie. She's in Grad school there. Then hubby and I saw my sister in NJ just across the river. After that drove down the highway to the D.C. area to visit a friend that I haven't seen in 10 years!! Couldn't believe it had been that long. We saw her and roamed around down on the Mall in D.C. to see the Korean War Memorial and the World War II Memorial - we hadn't seen those 2 before. Then, on to Luray Caverns. I was there when I was a child with my family. They are so magnificent!

And, would you believe that seeing all of these people I actually forgot to take pictures of them?! I really wanted a picture of my friend and me together and even mentioned it and totally forgot! One time I even left my camera in the car. Now, what kind of scrapper am I anyway?

Along the drive I got to stop at 3 different local scrapbook stores in 3 different states. Before I left on this trip I googled scrapbook stores and then called them to find out their hours and to see if they were actually still there. Most of them had closed up or were on vacation! So, I only got to go to 3 but I got some papers and things that I can't find in the stores at home so I'm a happy camper.

Now, back to the real world and home to rain, rain and even more rain and back to cooking.
