I'm Back home~!~!

Well, it's Friday and I returned from South Carolina on Monday.. I got all excited after I unpacked to get to my computer and read all my e-mails and then maybe get pictures downloaded so I could post a picture with my post... I looked at my e-mails and read all them and deleted a lot and then I decided to make me some coffee.. Well, when I came back to my computer there was so picture and nothing working.. So I tried to get that fixed to no avail and so i just turned it off unplugged it and took the tower to the car.. Today I took it to my friend, Jeff who is a computer wizard and he is fixing it for me.. So I'm here at the Springville Community Library using their computer... I miss my computer but that's O.K.. it will be back as soon as Jeff gets it all fixed.. Doggone virus's... I had such a good time in Columbia South Carolina visiting my sister, Lynn and my brother Dave.. I arrived on March 23 and on the 25 we went to the ocean.. Pawley's Island.. I love the ocean and we had a nice place to stay.. We decided when we go back next year we are going to spend the extra money and be right on the beach.. It was cold while we were there , but still was able to go to the beach and walk and enjoy the area.. There were some kids swimming in the ocean.. March is too early to be able to swim in the ocean.. We said 'It must be someone from Canada"... Found some really nice sea shells on the beach and took lots of pictures. We came back to Columbia on Sunday and then left on Tues for Ashville to go to the mountains.. We went to a place called Rivermont... If you would like to see where we stayed go to Rivermont.com we stayed in a cabin called River Roost. It was a beautiful place with the cabin built right on the side of a mountain.. The view was spectactular.. ~!~! We went to Mount Mitchell one day,,very foggy.. but it was so fun to wind up those mountains and see everything. One day we went to dillville or something like that and I bought me a dulcimer.. I have always wanted one and this one was made in the mountains.. It had hummingbirds and flowers on the instrument.. The lady showed me briefly how to play it.. This dulcimer had a book to show you how to keep it tuned and how to play it.. My favorite song was the 3rd song in the book.. "I'll Fly Away" I have been playing /practicing almost everyday it's really coming along.. It helps that when I was younger I played piano and this helps with playing this instrument.. Ben was so glad to see me~! He kept telling me "GranAnnie I missed you so much">>He was glad that I was home.. I'm going to pick him up today at daycare and take care of him tonight, Saturday and Sunday... Tracie is going to Holiday Lake somewhere in Iowa.. for the week-end.. I have lots of things planned for Ben and I to do.. Just finished reading the book called 'Unbroken".. Oh my goodness this is a great book.. It was written by the girl that wrote Sea Biscuit.. Don't have the book here with me so I can't tell you the authors name.. BUT it is a awesome book.. It's about the struggles that a man had with growing up, becoming a great runner and entering the Olypics in 1944, but the Oymics had been cancelled because of World War 2.. He enlisted in the airforce and was flying with a sqaurdran in a B24... The plane crashed and he was then in a POW camp in Japan.. It describes his stuggles with being in prison camp and how he survived.. and then married and how his life went on after getting out of the POW camp. It was a wonderful book and I would recommend everyone to read... When he was in his darkest part of his life he went to a Billie Graham Crusade and was lifted up by God.. He accepted God into his heart and his life got better right Away... It's just a wonderful thing what happens when one accepts God into their lives. When I was in High School in Akron, Ohio I got to sing in the Billie Graham Choir.. It was so wonderful.. All those voices singing to God. I was really excited. ' Have a Tiggeriffic Day~!~! Ta Ta For now...from Iowa
