To Market, to market to buy a fat pig
Home again, home again, jiggity jig
To market, to market
To buy a fat hog,
Home again, home again, jiggity jog!
This is a little rhyme that I have repeated over and over and over again, first with my girls and now with the grands.
As you know we went out West recently to visit our DD and her family. This past week we went to the NE to visit the other two DDs and their families. Kellen and Little Man had birthdays. We celebrated Kellen's 9th on Sat. the 16th and Little Man's 1st yesterday.
We just got home a little bit ago after a 15 hour drive!
I am intrigued by words and their origins. On this trip I really paid attention to the names of towns. Poughkeepsie, NY, Wilkes Barre, PA, Roanoke, VA, and lots more. I plan to research to learn more about some of these names.
The drive through Connecticut, Massachusetts, NY, Pennsylvania, Virginia, and Tennessee is a beautiful one with lovely scenery. My DH would ask how I know that because I'm usually reading or sleeping, but I pay attention more than he knows.
I read Ruby Among Us and Rose House by Tina Forkner on this trip. Very good books. I recommend them.
I will post photos tomorrow or the next day.
Today is actually my mother's 85th birthday. We are celebrating tomorrow.
On Tuesday, I get my sewing machine back. Yea!! I sewed some at my DDs homes. I mended a few things ad made a few cushions, but no real sewing. I had two messages from one of the ladies who wants 5 grandchildren outfits. She needs them by June 1st rather than June 6th. Hum.... I'll do my best, but I also have one other sundress and bonnet due this week. I told her I would be out of town. She must have forgotten. Thank goodness the others aren't needed till the 16th.
My DDs and their families surprised me with a wonderful bird house that one of my SILs made and some very needed sewing supplies for my birthday and Mother's Day. They also cooked a DELICIOUS meal!!!!
My eyes are closing as I type this so I. think. I'll. go. to. bed. now. ....zzzzzzzzzzzzzz.............
