I am so sorry! Im such a bad bad blogger pal.. I have not had a chance in days to read blogs or to post. I dont know what I did all last week... but this past weekend I had a great time!
wednesday night I got it in my head that I wanted to go to the Rhinebeck country living fair. so I called a couple friends and my daughter Jen, twisted some arms and made the plan to go!
Rhinebeck is a 5 hour ride without stops.. so with our three "pee" breaks, it took us about 6 hours. we got there and sort of hurried through because it closed at 5:00 and it was already 1:00 when we arrived.. or close to it. I knew that my friend Marlene Haveron was going to be there with Jenny Heid and Aaron Nieradka. So we found them right away. It was great to see miss marlene again and to meet Jenny and Aaron in person. they are adorable!
After we met up with them, we walked through a couple tents and then decided to eat! and on our way to eat we ran right into one of my first on line friends, Lisa Kettel! what a treat! we had touched base the day before and knew we would try to find each other.. and we didnt even have to look! we pretty much walked right into each other. Lisa is adorable too. She took this pic below of us.. which Im pretty sure she doctored it up because while she is totally beautiful, I am not.. and this is a way good picture of me.. I dont really look like that! LOL!
So.. while we were talking to Lisa and her lovely mom, someone yells out "Vivian Neroni"! and there is Kecia Deveney.. another old time on line friend! she had her good friend Jane with her that she often talks about. So it was very nice to meet her. I have met Kecia in person before, actually at the country living fair in Ohio about 5 years ago I think.
so we stayed til 5:00 and then headed home again.. we got back to our area about midnight! talk about a long day.. but so worth it.. (to me anyways! ) I had a great day. I didnt buy much, I picked up the old bears in the first pic I posted and I got some wool, a pattern and some tiny flags. Next time I go, I need to be more impulsive and buy the things I think about buying.. because now I just keep wishing I had bought some of the things I didnt! LOL!
On saturday, I took torry and violet out to breakfast with jen and Ella.. then to the playground and then to my house for little while. Ran them home and then it was time to head out on another little trip! Tony and I went to Canandaigua to see Garrison Keillors prairie home companion show. That was a lot of fun! Tony and I dont usually do anything together.. we have totally different interests! lol! And two hours away from home and I ran into 2 separate people I knew! such a small world we live in!
Which then brings us to sunday. Up early, cleaning the house so I could head to the beach for a while. Bethany, Torry and Violet came with me and it turned out to be a really nice afternoon. The kids love the beach like their Grammie pie!
Next time Marla needs to come with us as she loves it too. The water was absolutely freezing cold so no one went swimming! I love my beach!
soo.. then, while we were leaving the beach, I hear someone yell, "hey Neroni!" and there is my dear old friend Debbie and her husband! she had stalked my facebook and knew Id be at the beach. so they drove all the way out. they live about an hour and half away on another part of lake ontario! anyways.. they followed us home and we had a nice little visit. We all went out to get some dinner at our little hojack icecream shack in town. It was such a treat to see them! Tiffany and the girls met us there as Deb and Tiff have become facebook pals and when we left, Marla came over to hang out with me for an hour. but my camera battery was dead from the beach so I didnt get a picture of her!
so that was my weekend. And it left me totally pooped out today! lol!
lots of other stuff that has been keeping me busy.. but this is long enough already!
mostly I just want to apologize for not keeping up well lately. but dont doubt my love for you all.. cause I do.. love you all! I will be blog hopping in the morning! nighty night!
