This time tomorrow, Joe and I will be on our way to separate weekend vacations! Oh, the scandal of it!
Joe's only sister, who is about eight years his senior (she'd kill me if I was off by a year) is celebrating her 50th wedding anniversary on Saturday. She and her husband live on a cattle farm outside a teensy town called Lovelady, Texas. I visited there once, many years ago. It was very interesting to see the huge animals they raise and to be so far from everywhere. Unbeknownst to Janice and her husband, Joe is flying into Houston tomorrow where he'll be met by his nephew, host of the big party. He'll be home sometime Tuesday evening.
My vacation is equally exciting. Yup, I'm heading to Lancaster County for our semi-annual quilting retreat at White Oak Bed and Breakfast in Strasburg, just a hop-skip-and-a-jump from Intercourse (and Zooks, and the Old Country Store). There will be ten of us this time. I've packed up my in-progress Stack and Whack project and also have my Time Began in a Garden blocks all ready to be joined together.
After working a half-day tomorrow, I'll head home, load the car, drop Bodacious off for boarding (yes, even he is having a separate vacation!) and be on my way. A complete report will follow!
