Long Time-No See

Finally, some time to start in again on the blog, so let's get to it. ;)

The trip was WONDERFUL! There was great food, both old favorites and new. If you like fish and ever see Skate on the menu, trust me, try it. Lobsters clacked their claws in fear at my arrival and I had my fair share and then some.

There was weaving and sewing, exhibits, shopping, gift goodies, good movies and lots of excitement. Those dang play-off hockey games had us all on the edges of our seats. Go Bruins!

I got to feel useful by cleaning out closets and freezers and skiffs. Lots of time to rest and recharge with naps and reading and upon my return, Dennett was waiting for me still. With the new meds he's acting more like a 15 year old than an 18 year old.

I hit the ground running when I touched down in Oregon. The house needed to be attended to and Gene needed some free time after doing such a good job with the animals. I needed a little time to get back in the swing and find my mojo again. Frankly the weather is still like it was in March and April, AWFUL, but compared to what others are going through this wet stormy year, I have nothing to really complain about.

It's good to be back and I'll fill you all in on some more details next post and pictures. Blogger has been difficult at best with uploading pics, but I didn't want to let it go any longer before posting. It's good to be back.

Welcome Home!! We missed you!

Michelle said...

I've missed you, too! SO glad to hear Dennett was waiting for you. I haven't been having any problems with Blogger and photos; I wonder what's up with that?

Hey... there you are! Thought we had lost you to the wiles of the east (seafood and yarn stores)

Looking forward to hearing all the stories.

You are right about one thing though... skate is fantastic and its been awhile since I've had it. Seems its on the endangered list on this coast at any rate.

You are mistaken about hockey though (sorry) It's GO CANUCKS!
As evidenced by the win tonight 1-0 in game one.
Its been 40 years and its our time.

I'm sure you understand.... :)

So happy to hear the trip was successful and that you and all of yours are well. "There's no place like home, there's no place like home, there's no place like home." Are you clicking your heels?

Welcome back! I've been looking for your post to show up on the blog roll thingie on my blog. I'm glad you had plenty of lobster and i've heard skate (and rays) are good eating. I've not dared to try a ray yet. Though we had our first Pompano at Easter w/e and liked it so well we kept and ate one Memorial w/e too! Now i'll release you to catching up and then I'll expect you back-at-it so I can be entertained again teehee
