Giveaway and Retreat

http://www.sweetbeadstudio.com/ Is having a giveaway and putting on what sounds like a great retreat.

Attention to those wanting to put on a workshop or to teach classes: COME TO KENTUCKY!!! It seems as though every time I hear about a great retreat or workshop they are so far away.

Speaking of being so far away. We were on the road a lot this weekend traveling to Hog Jaw Valley, Alabama. Yes, I am serious there is such a place. My husband's family is from there. We traveled there for a family reunion/meeting. It is nice to catch up with those we rarely get to see.
I had the chance to go to some yard sales Saturday morning. I found some lace and some cute little cowboy boots. When I got back in the car with the boots, my husband just looked at me. I said, "Don't ask, and I don't know." Or the answer to the inevitable questions, " Why did you buy those?" And, " What are you going to do with them?" I will post some pictures tomorrow and you will see why they had to come home with me. The Goodwill was having a 1/2 price sale, so you know, I had to look there. It was late in the day, but I found a few things.
Our dog went to Alabama with us. He experienced a Mama Sow with her numerous piglets, a turkey with chicks close by, numerous chickens and still was a good traveller. Since we have arrived back home, he has spent a good deal of time in the shade of his favorite tree. I am sure he, like me, is happy to be on familiar ground. I hope you all had a good weekend and are ready for the upcoming week.

I love your story about the cowboy boots and yes someday his mom will think that. You do have a gift for writing.
