Miss Jean is Traveling

I'm off on a last minute trip to the Denver area with my son. Miss Jean will be back in a couple of weeks. If I can figure out how to download pictures on son's computer, I'll do a post or two. If not, I'll see you when I get back.

Stay cool while I'm gone. Since I'm going to Colorado, I know I'll probably stay more than cool!!!

*** Just checking in from beautiful, and I mean beautiful, Colorado! After last weeks blizzard I was a little scared, but the snow is melting and the skies are blue. Son lives in Centennial on the outskirts of Denver. The other night we rode the metro to the downtown district for dinner and we had a great time. I brought all the wrong clothes - did I think I was going to the North Pole or what!?! The only shopping I've done so far is to buy a few t-shirts at Penney's and load up on incidentals at Target.

I have never seen an area with such great shopping centers and an abundance of great restaurants. We went to church Wednesday night and everyone was so friendly. Colorado, you should be proud of yourself!!!

I have to talk son into taking me into town to the local quilt store. I'm going through withdrawals!

In the meantime, I'm checking all my bloggy friends so don't think I haven't forgotten any of you.

Ta Ta!!

I am hoping you arrived ok and with out any holdups do to the weather!! Bill never got out of Colorado Springs airport due to the weather in Denver- spend the night there tried to catch another flight in the am (5:30) but that one was canceled too! So he headed home

So sorry we were not able to connect but since you will be in CO for a bit maybe something will turn up!

I am loving my picture and did a post about it tonight! Have it in my study. When I get this ugly wallpaper off the dining room and repaint I think that is where I really want it!

Hope you're having a great time. Colorado's beautiful anytime of year, but now is probably one of my favorites. Hope you got your fabric fix on!

I'm catching up on blog reading... I've been pretty busy with the Puppies for the past month or two, but they are finally getting up there where they don't take up quite so much time. I hope that you are having a wonderful time on your trip! I've heard that area is really beautiful. My husband was stationed there while in the Air Force before we were married.

Thank you for coming by. Looks as though you are still traveling so it was nice of you to take time out to visit with all of us. Debbie Macomber was a real treasure to listen to. She has such a great story and I think you will enjoy this new book.

Stopped by to wish you a Happy Thanksgiving if I'm not able to visit before Thursday! A bounty of blessings for you and your family Jean.
