HOME!!! (temporarily!)

Sunday we put a lot of miles on the car! We being myself, My mother and my niece.  We shot off Saturday night til 1am so that got us a few hours out of Chicago, then hit the ground running on Sunday.  We stopped off at my friend, Mary Koval's place of business to see her shop, retreat center, and just enjoy her bubbly self!  She's so lovely... Some of you may know who she is by being a Antique Quilt Collector... Fun stuff to sift through and be inspired by! 

Well, we visited for a few hours, contemplated staying over, as Mary so generously encouraged us, but I was antsy to get home...  I needed to see the light at the end of my driving days!  So off we boogied and reached my house on Long Island at 1am Sunday night....BOY, DID I SLEEP GOOD!!

I will be back at 
Call her shop for more details and sign up early. 814 - 310-2278

My niece has never been to the East Coast, so we had to go get her toes wet in the Atlantic... Here we are taking a walk by the Montauk light house... Even the Surfers were out, it was all perfect... ;-)

 Mom and I rested out old selves while Peri enjoyed the waves and the sand in her toes....

Nice to see the Turkeys have not deserted us. LOL!  I had to STOP, and WAIT for them to decide if they were going to get off the road....  This way, that way, this way, that way....  finally they moved on...

Speaking of Pittsburgh...
