GREAT weekend!

Sunday, July 25, 2010

First off Wednesday we had a storm in NH, supposedly funnel clouds went by and there were hard downpours and high winds. Holly and I were down in the dungeon at the gym so we were safe. Thursday my DD came up and we had Popeyes chicken for dinner.

Friday we took a road trip to Rochester, NH and passed by a Stonewall Kitchen place we didn't know was there. It is is a warehouse outlet store with super great prices on stuff. Friday night my son and grandson came up for the weekend, that was a great surprise too!

Saturday was Diva Day at the outlet mall. We got bags with plastic crowns, a plastic bracelet, a plastic ring, a small fuzzy pink heart and lots of coupons for great discounts. We entered a contest for door prizes but we didn't win. They had entertainment but we browsed the shops. We went a couple other places along the way. It was a great fun day!

Today we did odds and ends around the house and my son did some clean up jobs for me. I feel like I got lots of exercise moving boxes, bending and picking up stuff, going up and down stairs more times in one day than I do all week, plus walking all over on Saturday. I'm tired so I know I'll sleep good tonight.

Back to the gym on Monday

Home in New Hampshire

Tuesday, July 20, 2010

Made it back home to NH today. Took the route through Bennington Y& Brattleboro VT. Went across Hogback Mountain, beautiful view, stopped and took pictures.
Picked up Arby's sandwiches before I left NY since we can't get them here, then stopped at a Popeye's in Albany NY since we can't get that here either.

I had a great time wtih my family going here and there. Met a Spark Friend ERIECANALGAL and bought her series of books about Erie Canal Cousins. They are very interesting so far,

So Wednesday it will be back to the gym!

    Glad you had a Great Visit with family and had a safe trip home.

The Hogback view is tremendous on clear days! I'm surprised it wasn't hazy up there, given the humidity and the overcast we had up here most of the day.

Another awesome day!

Friday, July 16, 2010

I met another Spark Friend today and it was so nice! I met ERIECANALGAL today at her yard sale. Spark people are always so friendly and nice, we all share the same addiction. I bought her set of books she wrote called Erie Canal Cousins, Three Weeks in Utica and Albany Home coming. They are VERY interesting books! I highly recommend them. They are for pre-teens and early teens.

Then I went to lunch with my mother and sister and then off shopping (browsing actually) for a couple hours. A very nice day. Then out for dinner to Applebees with my family and yes, I was careful what I ate.

Saturday I'm going to Syracuse to browse and walk the mall and meet another long time friend.

I'm on the second floor of the motel so anytime I need Ice for my water, Up and down stairs and there is no elevator.

I'm also watching the Yankees game live on New York TV, life is good!

    Sweet! I can almost see you kickin' back and relaxing there. And you met ERIECANALGAL! I've read her blogs and notes here but haven't spoken with her yet.

Road trip time

Wednesday, July 14, 2010

Thursday I'll be on the road headed to Central NY. I was born and raised there and m parents still live there. I get back to visit them once a year. The motel has WiFi so I'll still be in touch. It will take me about 6 hours to get there.
I've made a salad for my lunch along with lots of fruit.

I'll get to see a couple of Yankee games on the YES network, just wish I had time to drive to the Bronx but no this trip.
