Sunshine is good for the soul

Over the weekend Don and I went to Carlisle, Pa to visit Chris and his family and celebrate my grandson Scott's 22nd birthday. It's about a five hour drive and the difference in the weather was worth the trip. I had baked a spiral cut ham to bring with me and we enjoyed ham sandwiches Friday night. On Saturday the sunshine brought hot temperatures and it reached 78 degrees. Considering that the other day in Bradford it was ten degrees in the morning you can imagine how happy I was to be warm. We traveled to Chambersburg to the mall where there was a large antique co-op. It was enjoyable looking around at all the booths. At one time Don and I were avid antique collectors. He is always on the lookout for Greentown Chocolate glass and I have collected cookie cutters. We found neither at this particular place but walked around slowly (more about that later) peeking in the booths looking at such a variety of older items. Although we didn't buy anything Scott added to his collection of vinyl albums with an Arrowsmith album while Chris bought an unusual framed picture made up of a pocket watch parts. By the time we were finished there we had worked up an appetite and ate at a Chinese/sushi buffet. The guys love all the seafood but I never learned to like it but I could find enough to eat there for sure. We spent the evening playing Five Crowns and having pizza. On Sunday we watched a movie (Wild Hogs) in Chris' theater room. It is set up like a movie theater with comfortable reclining seats, a huge screen, surround sound and even recessed lights that gradually dim just like at the movies. Then we got ready to go home. It was such a nice weekend with family.

Before we left on Friday I went to my art class on Thursday. I parked on the street, put money in the meter and stepped out onto a brick street immediately tripping on the uneven bricks and falling down. I ended up breaking my big toe which hurt me all weekend. Bad boo boo. It's better now and I will live. I don't let a little thing like a broken toe stop me.

  1. Ow! Poor you! I can imagine that a broken big toe would be very painful. And you need it for balance! It may take a while to be 100%! It sounds like you had a lovely weekend with Chris and his family. The theatre room sounds wonderful!
