Hello! I have been a bit busy relaxing and taking in some of the sites that are within an hour of where I live. Friday afternoon I decided to travel to Watkins Glen, NY for a burger at the Seneca Harbor Station. Yes, a one hour drive for a hamburger...words just can not explain you actually have to have one to understand or is the burger an excuse when actually it is the view. I had completely forgotten about the Nascar in the Glen race going on this weekend. So the little town of Watkins Glen, NY was hopping!

Then on Sunday I went to the Pennsylvania Grand Canyon that is about thirty minutes from my home. My goal was to catch a glimpse of the do you think I did? At my little ice cream/gift shop I talk with tourists regularly that speak of the beautiful views at the canyon. I have not been there in years other than to snowmobile in the bottom so it was definitely a breath taking treat. On my to do list for the fall is to go back and hike on the trails and take these same photos to show you the beautiful fall foliage that tourists come from far and wide to see. Sorry I told you I was not a techy! I don't seem to be able to figure out putting the pics after my paragraph....bear with me I will get it someday! In the meantime the pics on the left side are Watkins Glen the pics in the middle and the right are the Grand Canyon.

Hopefully this week I will get projects and pics flowing. I was planning on finishing the binding on a quilt and making a purse for my future daughter in law this last week and then Tuesday morning while cleaning and defrosting my ice cream freezers I cut my finger quite seriously. The stubborn country girl in me toughed it out and ignored all the opinions that I needed stitches. It is doing very well now so I am blogging and crafting again!

Have a wonderful day!

  3. Your pictures are gorgeous and I most definitey understand driving an hour for a hamburger - they are my favourite thing to eat! Thanks for stopping by my blog! (There isn't an email link here so I am thanking via a comment). I appreciated what you said about my work and if you are interested in handwork, you should also talk to Diane - she had a needlework shop years ago and knows a ton!

  4. Beautiful pics! And if that burger was good, it was worth the drive!
