What We Did On Way Home....

We took a different route home from the beach this time and got side tracked in Savannah for a few hours. We arrived around 9:00 a.m., headed straight for the visitors center, got us a map of the city and off we went to find The Lady and Sons. We were fourth in line when we arrived at the door around 9:10 a.m. They start taking names at 9:30 a.m. so you have to get there early to put your name in for lunch or dinner because they only take reservations for 10 or more guests. We put our name in and walked around the city until lunch time which was to be served at 11:00 a.m. We were told to line up across the street around 10:45 and our name would be called. When we arrived a lady came out with a dinner bell, talked to the crowd for a few minutes, rang the dinner bell and they started to call out names. They give you a number and you head for the door to be seated.
They serve each guest a corn fritter and a biscuit just as soon as you sit down. The husband usually passes on the bread but he loved the corn fritters so much he asked for another and told me I need to learn to make them. No way...too many calories. LOL

We are always trying to maintain our diets so instead of the buffet we both order sandwiches. He had the chicken salad and slaw, I had the veggie and slaw. My veggie sandwich was definately the best veggie sandwich I've ever had and I've had lots of them.

I kind of told a little white lie earlier, here's the real reason we passed on the buffet. We should of shared a pieces of pie but instead we both had a full serving of Pecan Pie. : )

I wish we could of spent a little more time in Savannah, its such a beautiful town but it was a rainy day, we were tired and ready to head home.
I do however plan to return someday soon. I should also learn to do the collage thing with my photos. If your ever in Savannah try out The Lady and Sons. By the way, we did NOT see Paula Deen...I'm sure everyone there would have loved to meet her as she seems like such a fun person.

A Much Needed Break...

The hubs and I took a little break and headed south for a few days. Oh how I wish I had a beach nearby. We visited family, walked on the beach every morning and most evenings, took motorcycle rides (got stuck in the rain once), visited a fort, the hubs went to a football game and fishing with his brother, I got to scrap shop with my sister-in-law, went on a ferry and we ate way too much...well maybe that was just me.

And just wait till I tell you what we did on the way home....stay tuned ; )

Deuce's Little Squirrel Friend...

This little squirrel has been coming around for a few years now. At least we think its the same squirrel. It teases our dog on a daily basis. Deuce will stand at the bottom of the trees looking up for long periods of time just watching and waiting for the squirrel to come down but of course that never happens. Sooner or later Deuce gets tired of waiting and comes inside to rest. The other day I noticed that a couple of trees by the pond were stripped bare. The bark was missing from them. So I started looking around and noticed the little squirrel with a mouth full and I mean FULL of bark trying to make it up the tree. I didn't have my camera with me at the time so no picture but I did locate the nest in the tree and got a couple of pictures today. Its quite big and our little squirrel friend doesn't seem to be finished yet. The squirrel was up there scurrying around again today. I've never seen a squirrel quite this aggressive. I hope the squirrel and Deuce never come face to face as it would not be a pretty site. I'm pretty sure the squirrel would win if they tangled because Deuce is just a big ol' baby. Take a look at the trees, have you ever seen a squirrel do this? If you take a close look at the last two pictures you can see a little blur of the squirrel right below the nest.

Grandchildren Are Awesome...

I managed to spend a little time with each of them this weekend. Lucky Nana I am : )
On Friday evening the Grandson and I made paper beads together. It took us about 4 hours to make 20 beads. I'm sure glad I don't have to make beads for a living because I'd go broke in no time at all.
On Sunday the husband and I meet up with my daughter and her family at Irish Fest. There wasn't much going on as it was the last day of the festival but I always enjoy spending time with the little one.

Busy, Busy, Busy...

Busy working, exercising, trying out a few new crafty projects, trying to learn to take better photos with my Canon  Rebel T1i and also trying to learn to use PSE7 for editing and sizing photos. I have taken a couple of classes at BPS to learn to use my camera and I've also found a free course over at TwoPeas called 12 Weeks to Better Photos. I've printed the 12 lessons, read them and plan to work through them in the next few months. I think I just need to slow down, practice and get a tripod. I have been watching some tutorials at Designer Digitals on PSE7 but they are more for digital scrapping. I took a class on PSE7 awhile ago so I need to get out the notes and go over them again. If any of you have any pointers you'd like to share on taking photos or editing in PSE7...please feel free to do so.

Have a Good Week,

Labor Day Weekend...

The kids were busy doing other things so the husband and I spent a little quality time together this weekend. We went downtown, had a quick salad at the mall, did a little shopping...ok a lot of shopping : ), walked on the canal, rode the paddle boats, walked around downtown and visited the zoo. The husbands a work-acholic so its rare that we ever do anything like this but as it turns out he said it was a very relaxing weekend for him. Trust me when I say "IT'S ABOUT TIME"!
