We Interrupt this Regularly Scheduled Program

For a SURPRISE, last-minute vacation from my beefcake to us...

Williamsburg, VA locator map

He bought us a timeshare week (off eBay--where else?)
and got some house and ferret-sitters,
and we will be in Williamsburg, VA.

I am NOT going to be posting--
I will be organizing all the posts coming up about

This summer was very busy--
can anyone else say' "Amen" to that?

Lots on our plates,
lots on our minds
lots to get done
before this next year of school starts mid-August!

So, we seriously need the vacation.

I will be visiting y'all while I am sitting under a shade tree or umbrella somewhere.

I am anxious to meet all my new follower friends,
and am planning a give-away
for Back-to-School.

I'll miss you while I'm gone and and tell you:

"The Weather's here!
Wish you were beautiful!!"
(Inside family joke--now you can use it, too!)

May be doing some of this at Busch Gardens, too!

Have a blessed and joyful week while this home maker gets some time off!

  14. Thank you Leslie for thinking of me. Please don't go out of your way for the bottle. You are on vacation! I may just sell the one I have once I get further instruction on ebay ;)

  15. Have a wonderful vacation and enjoy your 'down' time with your sweet husband and beautiful daughters. Hope the heat lets up. I was in Williamsburg VA during a heat wave and all I could think of was the poor employees that dress in colonial garb and what it must have been like for the original towns people. Thank God I was born after air conditioning was invented!

    Your Friend,

  16. Oh how fun! enjoy, enjoy, enjoy!
    see you when you get back.
