Who's Made it Home, yet?
Trish & I ended up being the last to leave retreat at about 12:15. Fog had been rolling in the valley for a few hours prior to our departure, and had reached the ridge while we were packing the car... On one of the last trips to the car, I could see the dining hall, and by the time I climbed the stairs again, I couldn't! The fog had reached all the way up to the gym.
After we dropped the leftover goodies at the dining hall, we hit the road down the mountain. The fog remained at tree level, so it wasn't too bad of a trip.
We stopped in Fancy Gap at the pottery& Fabric shop and got a few goodies! Trish found some wonderful gold/gold&red braid trim for her Mrs. Claus outfits.... only $.20/ yard!!! She would have gotten more if there had been more on the roll!
After one more stop a little later for food, we cruised on home amid rain, fog, drizzle & slow cars. But as we were heading into Orange, VA (about 45 min. from home) we saw the most beautiful rainbow!! It glowed and lit up the sky like you couldn't believe. I now understand why the legend says there's a pot of gold at the end... it lit up the sky as if it were the sun! We could see 1 entire rainbow and part of a double one! [I'll try to load a picture tomorrow]
We made it into Fredericksburg to drop me off about 7:20. She then headed for home about 20 miles north from me...Santa was waiting for her arrival.
I was greeted by 4 little people that couldn't wait to tell me about their weekend! Rocked baby to sleep, and tucked the others in.
TOmorrow will be spent unpacking, starting on schoolwork, and tidying up the house. It was a good weekend!
I've heard from Jackie too... she arrived home about 3pm and promptly took a nap!! lol
