Home sweet home

We packed up the car yesterday after Mom's last class and headed home (We did the drive straight through, stopping only for dinner and gas - 12 hours!).

We had planned to head to Virginia Beach before heading home but we were both too tired. So, I didn't get to see the ocean - but have passport, can travel right? Actually - I would really prefer to see it first from Nova Scotia - as there is family history there.

But all in all it was a fantastic trip - I have more posts planned, but for now I'm winding down and enjoying my last day off before I go back to work.
Tux is very happy I'm home.

We bought lots of souvenirs (including three pairs of shoes, a dress, four bracelets, a pair of earrings, soap, candy...). But I know what you're really interested in is the yarn!
Yes - I bought souvenir yarn! The skeins are hand-painted merino singles by Unplanned Peacock (in Botanical and Frog), and the ball is a Crazy Zauberball in "Flussbett" which Google translator tells me means "river bed".

The zauberball will probably end up as socks for Dad. He completely detailed my car while I was gone! What a guy!

"Didn't you bring me a souvenir?!?"

Actually I did - but no picture of that - it was a cat nip mouse and he ran off with it immediately. I'll probably find it in the bed later....it's good to be home.....

He's laughing at you ......You went all the way to the US and you only got YARN?!

Glad you had a "productive" trip. Love the Zauberball.

What a nice trip! And yes, since you have that passport, I'm hoping you get to the ocean...and Virginia Beach soon. Tux looks so happy and content that you are back home! The yarn you found for souvenirs looks fantastic and will be an inspiration, eh?

Looks like a fabulous trip! I haven't been to Colonial Williamsburg yet, but it's on my list! (But not in July...that's just crazy!)
