Catching Up

I will just give you a short version of what I have been doing the last 2-3 weeks.  I went to Indiana, which is the state I grew up in, about three weeks ago to visit my family.  I stayed with my sister who turned 50 while I was visiting and we did our normal junk store shopping and spent a lot of time with coffee cups at the kitchen table and long talks.  Pictures were taken the night of her birthday by my niece but I am afraid none have become available for me to share yet.  I also visited with my Mom, Dad, Brother, Sister in Law and a Nephew and his family.  There was an evening spent with my favorite Aunt and my favorite Cousin at which time some birthday celebrating was being had.  I was able to catch up with a grade school friend that I have kept in touch with all these years after moving from that school district when in sixth grade.  We both have the same first name and she is the reason I have always wanted red hair.  Again no pictures.  I get so engrossed with the visits I forget to get the camera out.  But on the way to the area my family lives in I made a pit stop to meet a fellow blogger and a great person, Cindy Bee, of  The Bee Lady from Hilltop Farm.  We packed a lot into 2-3 hours.  Cindy gave me a tour of the home they are building and of the bee hives.  She and her husband have a wonderful piece of property and are doing a fantastic job building their dream home on it.  She gifted me with the best honey I have ever tasted.
We went to lunch and visited two of her favorite shops.
A Picture!

I think Cindy Bee could have kept me going until late that night but I had places to go and had to run off when I think she was just getting started.  I will have to visit again.  She also sent these creations home with me.
For these pretty faces.
There has been a sixth birthday.
The big boy has spent a recent weekend.
And a trip to the movies with two of the four brothers.
It was this little ones first trip to the movies.  He came with a blanket and if you look close enough you will see the blanket is holding candy and popcorn. 
And this, our youngest grand, is now able to sit on his own.  He is the girls little brother.
I have also joined Weight Watchers.  This is a first for me and there is not much to report yet.  Hardly a pound.  But I am going to do this thing.  So not such a short story but shorter than I could have made it.  
Hope you are all having a great week and tell me what you have been doing in your lives.  Blessings from our home in the woods!
