Colleen and I arrived safely in Pittsburgh.
I had forgotten how beautiful the countryside is.
'The mountains were a nice remembrance too !

We went exploring last night before we settled in at the hotel.
BTW, got a great rate from Travelocity for 3 nights at a Wyndam.
I found several places I would like to shoot pictures but am not so sure of the safety factor.
The good news is is that I have Colleen with me and that is good!

We stopped at "Dozen Bakery" because the ratings were so good.
"I" was disappointed.
Had been craving a German Chocolate cake for weeks, simply WEEKS. I picked up one and the cake was terrible.
Frosting was good but the cake was awful.
Colleen got some strange cornflake peanut butter chocolate concoction and liked it.
I'm not sure I would go back ---- but they did have a savory pesto scone that I was curious about ......

Today we have day 1 of our class with Sherry Serafini.
She's a fabulous artist and a good friend.
I am looking forward to some serious inspiration!

The heat continues and is estimated to be WICKED this week.
Near 100 most days this week with ongoing humidity.

It was a quiet 4th of July in my world.
Nothing wrong with that!
I am remembering my grandparents -- this holiday was always a big thing.
Because he was a memeber of the VFW and American Legion, my grandfather always had me out helping him to set up flags.
And my grandmothers birthday was July 4 -- so we always had a great time.

Work is good - busy busy BUSY !!!
We have an audit this week.

Friday Colleen and I leave for Pittsburgh.
Will be back on Sunday.
I am excited but also a bit apprehensive.
She says I worry too much.
Maybe I do.

My BFAC is coming along.
I need some jump rings and hope to find them this weekend.
Hopefully will get them, add and be DONE within the next two (2) weeks.
