I hope everyone had a great Memorial Day weekend…we left last Friday to head for the hills of Tennessee for 5 days.
Had a great time visiting with family and playing out in the mountains.
We went way out into the hills to some of our old family cemeteries…
and the scenery was breath-taking.
Now for the not so fun part of the trip…I spend part of one day in the ER on Sunday afternoon. We had been out to a church where one of the family cemeteries are. We had put flowers on some of the graves and after church service, there was a pot luck lunch. We then headed back to my husband’s aunt home to visit with all the family that had come up from Georgia. Just as I stood up from getting out of the car…the left side of my face got a tingling numb feeling and it went down my left arm and left leg. Luckily for me, my son-in-law was with us and he is a paramedic…he checked me over and everything check out fine. He suggested that I go to the ER to get checked out from them…so off we went and spent several hours there. They did all kinds of test and everything came back normal. Which is a good thing, but it still worries me not knowing what caused it. I did find out from my dad that he had this same thing happen to him many years ago and it never happened again…so I hoping it never happens to me again either.
On a happier note…our daughter is searching our family’s roots and on our last day there, we got to meet some relatives that him and my hubby had the same great, great, great, great-grandfather. It turns out that Terry is a woodworker and so is my husband. His wife, Roberta, loves to craft and sew…and so do I. We all had a wonderful visit with them.
She surprised my daughter, granddaughter, and me with aprons that she made for us. I hung mine from my old ironing board in the dining room. I just love it and will think of her every time I see it hanging there and when I wear it while baking cookies and cakes with my granddaughter.
Looking like we might be having some bad storms heading our way for this evening. Hope everyone stays safe if you are in the places that are having bad weather today.
Until next time……. blessings, Cindy
