Granny & me

Granny & me

So, this is my new online journal. Check it out.

Sunday, August 2, 2009.  I'm in Oxford, North Carolina at the moment visiting my grandmother. We've had a lovely time so far, eating, watching TV, sleeping, visiting neighbors, shopping, and eating. Yes, I realize I said that already. :) She made peach jam that is so fantastic. I've not done a direct comparison test yet, but it just might be better than her strawberry jam. Just maybe. I've also had plenty of fried corn and butter beans, biscuits, and even a trip to Bullock's for BBQ and Brunswick Stew-the best ever!

One of our days shopping entailed a party at an antique store in Downtown Oxford, which was neat. We spent a good hour or more wandering around the two-story shop looking at everything from books to jack-in-the-boxes and dress gloves to furniture. I've gotten to visit with my aunt, uncle, and cousins, too. Tomorrow we're going to some place for tea.

It's always great to see Granny! :)

I'm so jealous. I know how good Granny's cooking is! Good thing you and Linz will be doing a lot of hiking so you can work off all the extra pounds I know you must have picked up in NC.

Did you coordinate your outfit for this picture? :) It looks like something out of a movie...the perfect granny picture!
