Busy Busy Busy

Wow! Has it really been almost a month since my last post??? It really is true what they say... time flies when you're having fun!

Our B&B is in full swing and we're absolutely loving it! There was one OMG! moment when we accepted a reservation for an empty room but thanks to two day shipping and a lot of hustle and teamwork between me and Phil, we transformed it into the cutest and coziest little retreat evah!

We were off on our own vacation last week, visiting Fallingwater near Pittsburgh (which was number one on my Bucket List!), soaking up a ton of US history in Philadelphia, and then on to Charleston, SC, for Phil's daughter's graduation. We stayed in B&B's along the way (market research, you know!) and met a lot of neat people who are doing the same thing we are. Just a great trip all around despite my putting on a few pounds from scarfing down massive amounts of pimento cheese with pork rinds, pounds of really outstanding BBQ, and (be still my heart!) the biscuits with soooo much butter! Yum yum yum! I'll even confess to ordering banana pudding even though I was positively stuffed!

In between all of this I have managed to do some stitching. I worked on my BBD Summer and have the left side border done now. I also spent a couple of Friday's working on my Drawn Thread SAL piece but it's been slow going. I'm up to letter 'I' now but I made a mistake waaaaay back on the letter 'F'. It's hardly noticeable so I decided to work around it instead of ripping a bunch of stuff out. Other than that it's just been a lot of dreaming about projects I'd like to start. After visiting so many historic sites in Philadelphia, I really want to start LHNs Early American series.

I hate to have a post without a photo so I'll end with one of the bazillion eclipse pictures I took!
It was almost spooky how traffic on the lake came to a halt with everyone staring up at the sky! You could hear people shouting "There it is! There it is!" when the clouds broke! Just a really cool experience!

Hoping to be back tomorrow with some stitching pictures!
Thanks for visiting!

Running a B&B sounds like lots of work but I hope you enjoy every minute of it!
