aaaaand, I'm home!

Thanks to everyone for the spectacular weekend!   To our hostesses, who always do such a tremendous job.  To my tablemates, Laura, Leeann, and Bobbie ... great conversations and companionship!   And to my Mystery Benefactor, the super secret sister ... you are delightful, whoever you are.

And to Bob .. you were so sweet to give us all Valentine's Day hearts and Tom got a good chuckle with your reply that you didn't need to wear red tights and a Devil's costume because you were wearing a Speedo underneath the dino costume.   Such a visual.  :-)

I am home.  Truck unloaded.  Loads to put away, but that will happen in stages.
Thanks to Patty Ennen, Viola Yoder, Sharon Armstrong, Shelley Rodgers, for helping with the charity sewing!
I so appreciate the help in putting these fabrics to work!

Time to rest for another year.

Home, safe, sound, and still enjoying the afterglow of one of my favorite weekends of the year!  These Retreats are so very special to all of us, and the efforts of the hostesses contribute greatly to making it that way.

Many thanks to everyone who contributed by being there, being a part of our group, and just being you!  I always say this when I come home from Retreat...."so glad to be home but can't wait until next year."

Yup it was nice to chat. We are in the van almost at daughters house. Taking her out for birthday celebration.

As all have figured out, I respond to most anything.  Just keep it civil.

She has chosen, as an adult, by her first name, Jetta. I named her at birth and called her Lee Ann. Her name is Jetta Lee Ann Brand Barcus

Oops! Didn't see this explanation! I'm sorry, Jetta, for calling you other than what you prefer! :0

My oldest I called by his middle name, till he got in college and they officially called him by his first name.  Now he goes by either, he can tell how long you have known him by what name you call him!!

I had a cousin I called "anything" and wrote to him (snail mail) forever with that name!

I had a long name that I used until 2009. I shortened it to Mel for many reasons. 1-I lost my husband, my church, a lot of friends and 67 lb all in one year. 2-Biblical people get a new name when their lives are steered in a different direction. 3-One friend telling me off for the name and one set of family harassing me (still) over the name made me hate the old name with a passion. So, I'm Mel. I'll call you John Jacob Jingle Heimer Smith if you want me to :P
