Good blogger

I seem to be on a blogging roll. It may be that I have more time. Rob's been busy with his family, and Emily and Phil are busy being high school graduates. I spent most of today doing things around the house, preparing for my upcoming vacation. I'm a short-timer! We're leaving Friday morning, headed south. We'll spend the night at our usual stopping ground of Smithfield, NC. I love that place because it's only 5 hours from home, has a Prime Outlets Center, Cracker Barrel, and Dewayne's. There's no sense in stopping for the night if there's nothing to do. I love to eat at Cracker Barrel, but not while I'm driving because it takes so long. We're staying in a cheap motel ($44!) that I got through Priceline. I hope it's OK.

You might know I'm comforted by things that are familiar. I love recognizing sights along the road. I can even tell you where my favorite tree is in the middle of nowhere. I'm not crazy about I-95, but I like the things about it that are familiar.

This will be my familiar view on Saturday

We're staying in the same condo in N. Myrtle Beach, SC as last year, with the same group: my sister from GA, Ilene, and my nephew and his friend, and me and my two. I can't wait.

In other news, I have ants. The little ones. I don't have many in one place; I have one or two in many random places. I just sprayed the perimeter of my house with Cutter Bug Control. I bought Terro Liquid Ant Bait, and I'll put that around the interior of the house right before we leave for vacation. The war is on. Why, then, you might ask, do I have these decorative ants on my sidewalk? I don't know.

You can do something different ya know? Start a new tradition, at least one thing different this trip. Hope your weather is good. We're headed into the 90s this week beginning tomorrow, the first day of summer. Could have fooled me, those ants are decorative?

Lucky Duck! We're not going until September. We do the same thing on our trip, look for the familiar sites, stop at the same places.

One place that makes us all laugh and joke about is..."Cafe Risque" around Dunn NC. The billboards leading up to it are something else.

Did you retire the denim dress?

Have a wonderful vacation. Terro for Ants is a miracle product. I had itty bitty ants last year, used Terro as recommended by a friend and I haven't seen an ant since.

And I've been the absentee blogger!! Ants hate the smell of cinnamon.. BTW. If you have an extra vat of it hanging around, sprinkle it and they will go to your neighbors.
