I'm Back

Well I am back from vacation and I had a BLAST! This was a last minute, non planned getaway and something that I really needed. I was so stressed out that my darling husband just took me away from it all. And we had a blast.

We had no plans on where we wanted to go, just west. We went through Arkansas and wound up in Missouri. All Chester wanted to see was the great Arkansas mountain peaks only to find out there aren't any (or at least that we could find).lol I finally asked a tourist guide station where we had to go to see the Arkansas mountains and she told me we were in them. When I explained that we wanted to see the peaks, she informed me there aren't any. Well the Arkansas peaks aren't any larger than the Smoky Mountains in our own back yard.LOL
But we did stop at a lot of antique shops and I can't wait to show you what I got. Out of all of it, the butter mold and the tea towels are my favorite. Sarah and I are going to learn to make butter.LOLOLOL The tea towels are the ones with all the different pics in them. It is so cool. And the butter mold has a design on the bottom.
And I have lots of pictures from the trip that I will post as soon as I figure out how I posted the photo bucket thingy. I'll have to look it up again.
But I have to tell you this one. If you read my earlier post, you know Sarah was concerned what they were going to eat while I was gone. Well we got back late Wed. night and I cooked a big pot of chicken and dumplins on Thurs. night(which is Sarah's favorite food". When Sarah walked in the door, she said "Gram, Daniel and me almost starved to death while you were gone." And when Laura Kay informed her that she cooked every night, Sarah informed her, "Yeah, sloppy joes. All you had to do was put the meat in the pan and pour a can over it. You don't cook like Gram does". LOL Laura told her that I also fix sloppy joes sometimes but what she doesn't realize is that I also fix fried potatoes and mac & cheese with it. That poor baby ate almost 4 bowls of chicken and dumplins.LOL
So here are the pics of my goodies and I will post the vacation pics within the next 2 days. Ignore the cup and salt shaker. Until next time...
