Good Bye Colorado

Well, Sweety, Maggie and I are leaving for home in the morning. On one hand, I'm excited to go home and see my grandchildren and my daughter. Redmond and Dory both had birthdays while we were gone and I missed all the festivities. I have a new little puppy to meet as Mom got a new Yorkie named Daisy. My sister and I have some serious antique shopping and lunches out to catch up on. I'm way behind in yard work and I need to get my flower beds and pots planted and ready for summer. Sadly, I'm missing my lilacs blooming. Dory said today that they are covered with flowers. I have painting to do, cleaning and organizing to get caught up on. My BFF and I have our annual Lavender Lunch to get ready for in June. I have lots to keep me busy.

But oh how I hate to leave my son. This past three weeks have been such a gift. He's in the military so we don't get to spend lots and lots of time together. Since he moved to Denver, though, rather than overseas, I've loved catching up on baking cookies for him, doing his laundry, just plain spoiling him. I am planning on coming back a few more times between now and the fall, though. You see, he is being deployed sometime in the fall so you can see why I need to be near him lots now.

We're taking our time going home. The weather should be much better and we'll have more time to visit places we didn't see on the drive out here. One thing I am excited about is that we're stopping on the way home to visit a great friend that I met in Blog-land! It's Mary of Mary's Meanderings and she is such a great gal, I just can't wait! It's so fun to meet your virtual friends in person!!

I'm going to attempt to check my blog on our way home. When I get back home I'll hopefully have lots of pictures to share.

Denver, thank you so much for being such a great place to visit!!!!

It sounds like you're going to be good and busy for the next few months Miss Jean! I'm so happy that you've had a good time with your son -- there's nothing better than spoiling our children. Drive safely home!

Hi Jean - I know that bittersweet feeling you're experiencing now all too well - both of my children live in California. Drive safe and take your time - all that "catching up" you need to do at home will be waiting for you when you get there.

It will be so much fun to meet a virtual friend - I love it when I get the chance to do that.
