Putting off this morning what you can do in 2 hours

I should be packing, but I have reached the point where I really don't care what I take to wear on vacation, no one knows me, and really, Steve doesn't care. He always thinks I look good, except when I wear what he thinks is to short a dress to church. So instead of packing, I'm recovering my counter stools. I found this great iron-on vinyl that makes materials water and stain proof. It was easy to use and has endless possiblities. I'm starting to think of all the material I could use this on. Now I just have to find the time.

It has been awhile

Ok, so it has been awhile since I last posted something on my blog. I turning over a new chapter and have commited to post more often. I noticed I have been deleted as everyone's friends blog. Time to change. I'll start with our most recent trip. Great Britain. It was wonderful, so much history, so many castle, so many palaces.

Here we are at Loch Lammond, first I must say we were prepared for the awful rainy English weather. Jackets, long sleeves, unbrellas. It rained all of 15 minutes the first day, then it was sunny and hot for the next two weeks. Anyway, the Loch (or lake) was beautiful as was the surrounding countryside in Scotland.

This place is called Chatsworth House. Some house, it was grand in the grandest way. I think they filmed a part of Pride and Prejudice here, Mr. Darsey's house. It was something to see. The grounds were immense. I think it took us two hours just to walk around all the different gardens.

Here we are at the entrance to Edinburgh castle. Edinburgh has been around 1300 years as a city and always had a something guarding it for as long. This fortification and castle has only been around since the 11 and 12 century. We started the day up here and made our way down through the city

We stayed at the lovelyest hotels. This one was on a golf course and was an old manor house. Here we are at the back door. (I still have to figure out how to put a better background, you'll get more later)
