Good afternoon and welcome Through My Back Door. I have Heavenly Tea, hot tea, or coffee.Your choice. Grab a mug or a glass and help yourself, lets sit out on the porch the deck is sunny right now and catch up. Do you feel like I do that while you were wondering what you were going to do next, June slipped out like a cat, tip toeing away. I find I ask that a lot lately, where did time go? Well I have had some great times since we last visited. We celebrated the birthday with zest and lots of laughter, went to Florida to my favorite beach, and came home. Dodd, Renda, Olivia and I had a wonderful time at Seagrove.
I have had a wonderful summer. Spending time with friends and family. We have had some good times just being. I did some furniture rearranging and found some twin beds for my guest room. I hated to get rid of my old walnut 1700s rope bed but needed twin beds for that room. We had looked in all our travels for a pair, but never found any I liked. Went out to Clinton one afternoon with my friends Betty and Janie and went into Corner Antiques and there they were! Right under my nose. I laughed and said I got "new" beds. These are 1860's! They are rope beds also but the rails were modified to accommodate twin mattresses. I am so happy with them.
Last week I went over to Asheville with my friends Georgia and Carol. We stayed the night with Carols niece Carrie and her family. Mary Ann, Carols sister met us there too. We had such a wonderful time. On Monday we went to a book signing with Susan Branch. Most of you all know I love her books and illustrations. I had never met Susan but Carol and Georgia had. She is so charming and so is her husband Joe. They acted as if they had known all of us forever. We enjoyed chatting with a couple of women from Johnson City while we were in line too.
I am sorry to have been away so long and hope I haven't lost all my readers. It makes me happy when you come Through My Back Door where life is good.
