Home from Kentucky
Hello all!!! I am slowly getting settled after coming home from the best trip I ever had. I meet up with some friends in St Louise and we drove to Marion, Kentucky. It was so funny on the Tom Tom it said it would take us about 3 hours to get there!! We got there after 6 hours. I just know it had nothing to do with all the pee stops and shopping at Wal mart and having ice creme gesh we were on vacation!!! LOL!! So anyway I thought I would start with day one and each day for 7 days tell my tale of the adventures of the "Kentucky Agenda Maker's Slug Fest"!!! By the end of the 7 days you will understand how we came up with the name of the GetaWay!!! We have met like this for 5 years now! We actually meet on the internet. But this year was special because we got to meet the leader, Darla!! And she is a doll!
My friends and I flew into St Louise Airport and stayed the night in the Quality Inn. The room was very cheap for 4 women staying in the same room it was hilarious too. I got to meet a new lady this time her name is Dawn but at the end of the Slugfest her name was changed to Lil. For Last in Line! LOL!! Everywhere we went she was always the last person in and the last out!! She accepted the name graciously and is a very sweet person. The other two women Glenda and Mazda (yes I said Mazda/her real name is Carolyn) Of course my nick name is Oak. We talked and laughed and cryed for a few hours and then we got tierd from all the traveling. We had a late supper and then was all exausted and went to bed.
I am a native West Virginian that loves gardening. I am 6 years away from retiring so I can garden some more. I have 2 flowers sales a year one in the Spring and one in the Fall. I make enough money to buy more flowers! We also have 5 cats and one dog that you will see in here!! I have started making handmade soap. This is something that feels so natural. I have been going to Craft Fairs and just love the people I meet and the things we talk about. Plus I work a full time job on a Behavioral Health Unit in my area.
