Three days in North Carolina

Hello all,

We arrived in Raleigh, North Carolina on Wednesday and the weather has been beautiful. Have had a great time visiting with family and enjoying the sites. My brothers and families live in Cary which is kinda like a suburb of Raleigh.

We are going to a graduation party this evening for my niece, Shay , who is graduating tomorrow from East Carolina University in Greenville. She has been accepted to Chapel Hill to do graduate studies.

My son, Nick, just finished finals at Georgetown and was headed to St Maartens this morning to meet up with friends to go on a week long sailboating trip in the Caribbean. He called me around noon and was in Charlotte NC. His plane had been delayed in DC because of weather and by the time he arrived in Charlotte he had missed his flight to St Maartens. Can't get another flight out until Saturday morning, so he rented a car is coming to Raleigh for the evening to visit. Really excited! Will be glad to see him before he takes off on his adventure.

My Mom and I visited a really cool quilt shop in Cary. In an old two-story house and full of fabric and patterns. I haven't located any rughooking yet, but maybe next week. We are going to venture out a little bit more.

Well guess I better close...headed to pick up my sister-in-law, Sandy, who has been so kind to let us use her car while she is at work. Have a great weekend and enjoy family time.




  1. Sounds like your having a terrific time and I'm sure your thrilled that you will be seeing Nick.
    The quilt shop sounds wonderful and hopefully you'll find some rug hooking places to stop at!
    Have a Happy Mother's Day.

  2. Hi, Pati...sounds like a fun trip for you. So, did you buy anything at the neat quilt shop?? Glad that you were able to have a visit with Nick...a real PLUS for your trip.
    Have a wonderful Mother's Day.
