On The Go

Sorry for the absence from this blog. I have been on the go the last week plus.

On Saturday, my nephew (with his freshly minted undergraduate degree) got married. Weddings are such a great way for families to get together.

Our son and our daughter-in-law were there; our daughter and her fiance were there. My brother (father of the groom) and sister-in-law (mother of the groom) were there. Their non-marrying (yet) son was there, with his girlfriend. My sister was there (while my brother-in-law stayed home to work--summer being busy time for his business), as was their daughter, my niece, and her husband. And my father and step-mother were there. In all, just about the whole family that could assemble.

From Saturday on until today, our daughter has been working on more wedding details. Invitations have arrived. First dress fitting, flower arrangement revisiting, cake extra-tasting. There are many many details.

And today, when our daughter and son-in-law-to-be left, they headed toward New Jersey (his home area) for more celebration. They will be with his family for a few more days before returning to England.

So, sorry for being absent. Not only have I not had time to write--I haven't had time to read.

This upcoming week should be much less busy.

Now, I need to put up my feet, and sit a spell!

Busy is good tho, right? Keeps me out of trouble at least.

Whew - sounds like you have been busy, but it is all time well-spent!

Enjoy life!Family times are far more important than blogging. I have all my daughters in Canada right now...rare indeed. So blogging takes a back seat.

It is always a great time to see everyone. The bride was lovely!

We all seem to be a little sporadic in our posting. I think it happens in summer. Weddings are so happy, aren't they?

Glad it's a good kind of busy. Enjoy the family.

No need to apologize, Donna. Summertime is for getting other things done that we don't normally get done during the rest of the year. :)
