I checked with SS last night to be sure she had seen the pics (they come through upside down from G.T.'s Iphone, we don't know why, so you have to download and then flip them vertically!), but she had not been on her email. Two of her daus were planning on going up for the day, but plans changed til another week. They have already been up a couple of times this summer and of course asked SS if she wanted to go along, but it is a long ride for her and too uncomfortable at this point in her recovery. Got up to some more pics this morning. I'm waiting to hear if things on land have changed.
Winter's on her way by now. Hope they have good driving weather. Vacations are an exciting time. I always enjoying the "getting ready week before" just as much, packing up a box of staples we would take along, since eating out wasn't financially possible. It was a fun time staying in those screen in porch cottages up there, with the world at our feet - at least that's how the boys and I felt.
A little chill in the air this morning, cool air coming in the windows I've just opened. Haven't caught the news/weather yet, so not sure what to expect.
Did get a call last night from fam that was coming down today. DIL's fa was taken to the hospital last night, and no word as of then what the underlying problem was. Today's plans may be cancelled, depending on how he's doing.
In the meantime, I'm planning on getting around early and carrying on with all but taking all the frozen goodies out of the freezer. Will still put together a tray of lasagna, if they do get down, that will be helpful for them to take home. Hope you all have a good day.
