Thanks for DO info. I like the idea of 2 pieces.

Maggie, I hope you're home safe and sound. I got in last night at 11:30. Tired, aching and a bit of a nervous wreck. Long story. Next step...fly back to Ft Worth Wednesday, then drive "Goliath" home. It sure felt good to sleep in my own bed last night!

Lily and I were on the road at 7 this morning, and are home now just about an hour.

Lily did a victory lap around the yard, checked to see what intruders had been around in her absence, and is now settled on the couch. She's a trooper.

Uneventful drive, the important things are unloaded and the rest will wait til tomorrow.

First thing I did was start a fire....it is 42 degrees here, still very early Spring in Central Illinois ....and now, a soak in the tub.

I cannot wait to walk you to and introduce myself to you on the SV trip.
You could write a book "Becoming Alone”. What a great read that would be for me.

I think the SV gathering is going to be great fun....if only because there is a passel of women with a whole lot of enthusiasm about it.

I have eaten road food for 2 days getting home, plus too many sweets from the potlucks over the weekend.....would hate to have a fasting blood sugar in the morning.

Tomorrow is a new day, and I will return to eating more healthily.

Hi Maggie,
We were only at the Alumilina Spring event on Saturday and early Sunday. Life intervened and we had to put things off. However, we arrived early Sat. and continued to enjoy all we could. We are not naturally attracted to crowds. However, we attended the 2015 fall event and had a great time. We dropped by in our walks around the grounds but never were able to see you available (we try to not bother people in their quiet times) Sorry not to connect, however, best wishes to you and Lily. Oh, we did see Lily in her front seat on one of our laps.

Thank you, and sorry that I missed you.

I made shell candles after the breakfast potluck Saturday morning, then baked a loaf of bread and the Bun Pudding for Saturday night....so I may have been in their big kitchen when you came by, as I don't recall any quiet times on Saturday.

If you saw Lily in the front seat, that must have been Sunday morning, when I had taken the windshield cover off in preparation for pulling out.

She knows the signs, and assumes her position.

I'm glad you have enjoyed the Alumalina group...there are many good people there.


Maggie

Be glad that you got 42 degrees. We got low teens and 8 inches of the white stuff over the weekend. Was out tenting with the Scouts and my tent collapsed under the weight of the white stuff.

Laundry done and things mostly put away, a few groceries and fresh things in....we are good for awhile.

I had decided toward the end of this trip to add wifi to my home, as it is a nominal expense and will improve the quality of my life....so did this online early this morning thru Comcast/Xfinity, who provide my basic cable service, but confirmation required a trip to their local office.....with Doug's death certificate, as this was still in his name.

They needed to speak with him to confirm the change....ummmm.

A bit hard, out of the blue, but the account is now in my name, and Monday morning a tech will be here to do whatever is needed to allow Internet into the little house.

This also adds HBO to my basic cable service....House of Cards.

The sun is shining but it is chilly here.....highs here lower than the lows in South Carolina.

It's why we go south for the winter.


Maggie

Maggie, I suppose your trip makes you an official "SNOW BIRD"? One more thing checked off. I am glad your trip was fun and a success.

I'm currently in the "new stage" and working my way toward seasoned traveler. No hurry here. I assume by summer's end it will all be quite familiar.

It seems silly, but, I am somewhat resentful that I have to fly tomorrow. No other choice, though. I don't like flying...cramped into a flying sardine can...totally dependent on others for my safety. It goes against my independence "grain"! Only a 2 hr flight, so, there it is.

I will plan a different route for my return home trip...avoiding the terrible winds, storms, fires etc., of Kansas and Oklahoma. Had enough of that to last a while.

Keep your home fires burning and snuggle in with sweet Lily. It is good to be home between trips.

It was a good trip...can't complain.

I think of snow birds as winter Texans and Floridians, but spending the winter in South Carolina rather than Illinois may also qualify.

There is lots to do, now that I'm home, but I remind myself it doesn't all have to be done today.


Maggie
