My Bags Are Packed

My bags are packed

I’m ready to go,

I’m standing here outside (the) door…..

Ah, remember that song by John Denver…..

It’s repeatedly circulating through my head right now. You know one of those “ear worms.” I can’t seem to get it out of my mind. Must because I am all packed and ready to go. Heading to the great north for my sewing bonanza with my friend Barb M. All that’s left to do is throw in the few odds and ends that always seem to be packed at the last minute, hop in the car and head to our meeting place. Before leaving I just wanted to say one last hello and share with you a little snippet about my day yesterday.


Yesterday while working on a few projects and gathering up the last of the items to be packed I received a sweet face time call from my youngest granddaughter. She wanted to know if Nana could come over to play. Miss A was very sad when she heard that I was stuck at home and couldn’t go to her home. Tears started to roll down her face as she handed the phone to her mommy.

Plans were made for her to come to my house later in the afternoon. When she arrived she announced to her mommy, “you go now.” Like a big girl she wanted to stay with Nana all by herself. Mommy obliged and left the two of us alone to play. We busied ourselves with puzzles, popcorn and some of her favorite television programs. It fills my heart with joy to know that my grandchildren want to spend time with me. There’s nothing better.

Well the clock is telling me it’s time to wrap things up. I hope to send out updates while I am at the retreat. They don’t have television but they do have WiFi so I still have my connection to the outside world. If I get too wrapped up in my sewing I can always take lots of photos and share them later.

Take care! Have a Great day!

  1. What an adorable girl! I always have that John Denver song on my iPhone in my mix, I love him. My Dad was from West Virginia and he always sang the John Denver “Take Me Home, Country Roads” song to us that mentioned his beloved West Virginia. You are going to have so much (or sew much) fun at your Sewing Bonanza!

    1. Awe thank you so much! She is adorable as are all of my grandchildren. But then again I just might be a bit biased. 🤓 I was a great fan of John Denver. I have had that song stuck in my head too. Went to several of his concerts and was very saddened when he died. I believe I will have “sew” much fun. Thanks for your visit and your very kind comment.
