I'm back!

It's me, Henny, home again, and as mama used to say, "I don't know which way to turn!" 

The little vacation was wonderful! Time spent with my daughter and granddaughter was wonderful! Not having to cook for three days was wonderful!

and here's another wonderful! I got to meet a very special blogging friend, Dianna, from the blog forgiven. It was so exciting! Let me tell you, she is as sweet and friendly, and sincere in person as she is on her blog. We didn't have enough time, so our visit was way too short. I'm hoping to go back one day and we can maybe have lunch together. At least we got to meet. Thank you Dianna for waiting in the heat and humidity for us. Andee got a picture of Dianna and me...for my blog, but, of course, my eyes were closed and my mouth was open, so I'm not posting that one.   

Back home at Andee's, this is Madison's kitty cat, Percy...

he is adorable...big old thing! He's a tad overweight and has a crooked little mouth, and doesn't seem to care who holds him.

here, it's Andee supporting all that weight.

On our little trip, we stopped at a place called Coopers Rock. Oh my, it was breathtaking! Yes, that is my granddaughter Madison walking down the steep side of that rock in wedge hill oops! heel shoes. I was scared to death she would turn her ankle or fall! 

my nerves were shot! We got out of there without a scratch. :) I am truly a world traveler, can you tell? Call me mama!

Okay, this is my post! Hopefully, I will be back soon. Can't wait to show you how the teeny tiny garden is growing. Now I am off to read some really good posts...yours!


Oh, that first picture, that's my dream home. I snapped it along the way...seems like it was western Maryland maybe. We had driven through lots of rain and thunderstorms, and I love the way the clouds dipped down over that beautiful farm.


  1. Welcome home!!!!!

    Beautiful farm.... Kids in heels, on rocks.... what are they thinking of?????? ,-)

    That's one bigggggg catttttttt.

    Hope everyone at home, managed without you. -grinnnn-

    Hugs, Luna Crone

  2. Sounds like a wonderful break away and so lovely to meet up with a blogging friend. Loved that farm such a beautiful place to dream about.

  3. What beautiful pictures you took on your trip! You live in such a lovely part of the country. It is always so nice to visit family and when we return from a trip I think we appreciate home all the more.

  4. Good to know you made it back (tunnel and all) in one piece and that you had an enjoyable visit.

  5. Simply magnificent views, I could live there in a heartbeat :)
    Looks like a good time was had by all Henny, I would love to do a little trip like that, Bonding time with daughter and granddaughter....
    What a beautiful ginger cat, of course I'm a little bit prejudice when it comes to orange cats :)
    Look forward to seeing more pictures, I'm sure you were missed tremendously at home !

  6. It's good to hear that you are safely home again and that you had a wonderful visit. Your photos are lovely and it's it nice that you got to meet a blogging sister.

  7. Gorgeous photos, so glad you are home safe and sound - how was that awful bridge/tunnel you were worried about?

  8. Your dream house looks like it is in s dream with those low clouds over it. What gorgeous views of the mountains! Glad you had such a good time and I am glad you are back safe and sound.

  9. Welcome back! Aw! Your grand kitty is adorable!

  10. That is some dream home! I am glad you had a good visit and it is good that you are home safely! :)

  11. I'm so glad you had such a wonderful time. The scenery photos are just breathtaking. I whole heartedly agree with your comment about Dianna! Welcome back.

  12. Dear wonderful it was to be able to meet you and chat for a bit. I am so glad that you and Andee enjoy WV. We love it, but then we do live here. haha I am so glad that it worked out for you all to stop at Cooper's Rock. Isn't that a beautiful place? I could barely stand to look at the picture of Madison walking on those rocks with her wedge heels. All I could think was where she would end is a long way down there! But all is well that ends well. Isn't the scenery there at the overlook just gorgeous? One of my favorite spots.

    Thank you for making mentiono of my blog. That was so kind of you. And all of those kind things you said about me? Thank you so much. You are a dear.

    Percy is so cute! I'm sure Poppy was happy to see you pull back in your drive way when you got home. :)

    It was good to see a post up from you this evening! I've missed you.


  13. I always think the best part of going away is coming back home!! It does sound as if you had a good visit and that's great. Now life goes back to normal. Have a great week!!

    So glad you're back. Your pictures are just awesome. What gorgeous views of the land you had.....and love that Percy.....I would be giving him a big hug too! So glad you had a great time. You deserve it. can't wait to see pics of your garden too!

  15. This was a well-deserved little vacation for you. I'm sure your daughter and grand-daughter loved it too. Of course, everyone, including all the farm critters, has to be delighted to have you back home. Now, I'm looking forward to seeing how your garden grows.

  16. Glad to read you had a fun time away. My goodness, that Percy is a big one. Adorable, too. Isn't it fun to meet a blogger friend. I have met a few and it is always a fun time. How did Smokey ever survive without you?

  17. Welcome back. Glad you had a good get away!
    I love that cat!

  18. You're home! I'll bet Poppy, Eli and the other pets were happy to see your car come down the road!!! I know how you feel seeing your loved one on that rock at that height. I did the Grand Canyon practically on my knees yelling at my hubby and two daughters to NOT lean out over the drop off. Glad you had such a good outing.

  19. Welcome back Henny. So glad you had a great time. Always nice to have a break.
    Take care.

  20. Well, Percy is adorable! So glad you had a good trip... and welcome home.

  21. I'm glad you took the time for your trip. You always have so much to do, that I can imagine how you felt when you got home. Those scenery pictures are just beautiful. I don't think I'd want to go to the edge with Madison, even if I were younger. I'm not a fan of edges, but I love the view from above. I bet Poppy, the dogs, cats, bunnies and critters were happy to have you home.

  22. Oh what a beautiful cat! I love his little crooked mouth. That is a beautiful place you have been. I am so happy you had a great time visiting with Andee" and Madison. I know you loved every minute of it.

    Glad you are home and can not wait to see your little garden.

  23. I was wondering about the picture of the beautiful farm! So glad you got a chance to get away for a few days. They say a change is as good as a rest, although I have my doubts about that ;-)

  24. Your photos of the sites while on your trip are aw-mazing! You drove through beautiful country none of which we have in Ohio. Flat land and straight roads is what we have around here. I am glad that you got to meet a blogging friend. That had to be wonderful! I must bounce over to her site and see what she is all about. Glad you are home!


I love hearing from you. Thank you for your comment.
