My little family and I are home in Asheville, NC. My parents place is completely amazing and I have heaps of pictures, but the Internet signal is squirrely way out here (we are actually about 20 miles out of Asheville in the woods, back in a cove, so no cell phone and no wireless) so I can't figure out how to get the pictures from my little red lap top to Dad's big PC and up to here. I will put Stu on it and he will have it figured out speedy quick. No worries.
Yesterday was Independence Day and we had a wonderful barbecue. Most of our large wonderful family came and we had a blast talking politics, religion and Australia. We consumed gallons of Sweet tea and lovely little micro brew beers (they are only about $7 for a 6 pack as opposed to $18 to $20 in Alice Springs) I had a bit of fried chicken but saved most of myself for the dessert table. Oh dear Gosh. The taste of my childhood and holidays.
So I will go work on the picture deal and I think we are going to try to go to the Farmer's Market and take a ride on the Blue Ridge Parkway, maybe stop at Devil's Courthouse. Tomorrow we will go look at larger cars. Currently we have a very well maintained 2005 or maybe it is a 2006 VW Passatt Wagon with 16,000 miles, but it is a bit too tight for 3 booster seats on the back seat. Lots of laws here...stuff to re-learn. ;o)
I had a very short stop in the Ingles (grocery store) down in Lake Lure, but my Mom drug me out when she saw that I was going to continue wondering aimlessly around the tomatoes. Her fabric shop is closed today otherwise I would try to go there too and fondle bolts of lovely potential.
Oh and one more thing! My mom kindly set aside a quilt all stacked and pin basted for me to quilt. It is lovely...
