Have you been wondering where I've been? I have been at Thirty-One National Conference for the past three days. We are on our way back home right now from Columbus, Ohio.
It was an awesome experience to be at the conference. I have taken lots of pictures and seen lots of new products. I'm sure I'll be updating you with some pictures of my trip in the next few days.
But for today, I just want to say that I am so glad to be heading home. I have missed hubby so much and can't wait to get back home. I will be back to writing tomorrow.

Just stopping in to say Happy Monday. It is 7:10 a.m. and I have already made lemon cookies, did two loads of laundry, colored my hair then washed and styled it. Plus several other items on my to do list. It's going to be a busy day. Busy, busy, busy!

It sprinkled on and off yesterday and late yesterday even a nice steady rain set in. The kind that just lulls you to sleep.
After supper, I grabbed my book and my blankie and snuggled up on the couch to read while hubby watched TV.
We went to bed earlier than usual so we could go to sleep listening to the rain. Every time I woke up it was still raining. I was wide awake at 4:30 so I got up and headed to the couch again thinking I might be able to doze a little longer.
It didn't work. It was raining so hard the rain kept me awake. I finally just got up at 5:30.
I am running out to Walmart to pick up some last minute supplies I need for an upcoming trip. Then I am picking up some of the grandchildren to come spend the night. Hope everybody has a great weekend.

My Garretson ancestor's home town of Nellis, West Virginia in 1926. Daddy would have been 3 at the time they lived here.
My great grandfather the Reverend Patrick Lawson Garretson.
My Grandpa Garretson, Aunt Stella, Aunt Elsie, Grandma Garretson, Aunt Dorothy and Stella's boys.
My Uncle Sebert Garretson. He was only 16 in these pictures. He worked in the coal mines and died when he was in his early 20's. I can't recall what happened but I believe he was killed in the coal mines.
