We just got back from the Smokey Mountains and vacation about a week ago. I have been trying to catch up on everything else this week. We had a wonderful time and enjoyed spending time with two of our boys, daughter in law and grandson. We rented a pretty house in the mountains. We woke up to beautiful sunrises and went to bed with beautiful sunsets. I think we all decided we would like to live there. We took quite a few hikes and saw some beautiful waterfalls. I usually brought up the rear. I was out of shape from the previous winter and my struggles, but I got there eventually. We saw some bears, also. The week after we came back, we spent at our camper and got lots of rest. I got to get some reading done, which I love, also. During our trip to the Smokies, we took one day to go to North Carolina to see my parents. This is a picture of them. They are enjoying their retirement, there. Hope to be doing some crafting, soon.
