Friday Flowers

Happy Friday all!  I'm glad you stopped by!  Let me show you the flowers I got last Saturday at the Farmer's Market.  Here it is Friday, almost a week later, and they're still pretty (I took these pictures late yesterday afternoon).  I sometimes save those packets of flower food you get with supermarket flowers, and I used some in this bunch.  Wow, did it keep them fresh and perky!

Father's Day 2019

I realize that Father's Day was last Sunday, but I'm just now getting a chance to share this post.

Friday Flowers

Happy Friday everyone!  How nice that the first official day of summer and the summer solstice are on a Friday this year.  I thought I'd kick off the weekend with some flower pics from our Williamsburg trip in April.

Our Master Bedroom

Happy Friday everyone!  As promised yesterday, I'm back today with a post on our master bedroom.  I've been working on this room for the last few weeks, and I'm ready to have it finished.  I don't have before pictures for you because I just forgot to take them.  At any rate, I'll share again when I've added the finishing touches.

Colonial Williamsburg, Part 2

Hello dear friends!  I'm sorry I have lost touch; I really didn't mean to take such a long break from blogging.  I've been working on some things here around the house, and sometimes I just have to focus on one thing at a time.  
I hope you're all doing well and having a good summer.  Today I want to share with you some more about our trip to Williamsburg back in April.    We really enjoyed strolling around the historic area every day, and we also had some good meals while we were there.  I will warn you, though, if you're thinking of visiting Williamsburg and you haven't been before, be prepared for the prices.  We didn't have to pay for our lodging, but souvenirs and food were quite pricey.  I thought our lunch the first day was very expensive for what it was -- two, pre-made, deli sandwiches from the refrigerated compartment in the Raleigh Bakery.  I found out why the price seemed so high a few days later.  We were in the DeWitt Wallace Museum, and we went down to the cafe in the museum to get something to drink.  The lady in front of us was questioning her total at the register, and the cashier told her that there was a 14 percent sales tax on the food.  Yikes!!  I almost choked on my colonial, King's Arms ginger ale.  😲  The cashier said the sales tax differed from city to city in Virginia.  Hal and I decided that Williamsburg is imposing a soak-the-tourists tax.  😏  I mean no offense to those of you who live in Virginia; we love to visit Virginia, but had no idea the sales tax was so high in certain areas.  It won't stop us from visiting again, though. 
Would you care to see some of the shops in colonial Williamsburg?
