My secret to surviving travel.

My secret to surviving travel.

Headed back to The Boot. With 6 hours of travel ahead of me, I figure I deserve an expensive coffee. Those twin plumes of smoke in the background are coming from the reactors on Three Mile Island. I’d make a snarky remark about that, but I’m headed back to a state that literally has an area nicknamed Cancer Alley, and I am not _that_ much of a hypocrite.

Downtown Houtzdale, PA. We had a post-funeral lunch gathering here at Joey’s Restaurant with all the family. If you ever find yourself up in the mountains of western Pennsylvania, go have the baked spaghetti with meatballs at Joey’s. DELISH!

Stopped of at Penn State’s Berkey Creamery in State College, PA, on the way back from the funeral to toast our Mom-Mom with one of her very favorite things- ice cream! (Those two gorgeous young ladies are my cousins and Mom-Mom’s great grandchildren. I do so love those girls!)

A gray, gloomy day here in Pennsylvania. I guess the universe knows we are laying one of its best to rest today, and its mood is appropriate.

I’m in Pennsylvania for a sad task, but oh my gosh. I have to say the weather here is DELIGHTFUL! When I left home this morning at 4:00am, it was 76 degrees with 65% humidity. Here at 1:00 pm it’s 68 with 51% humidity. This is awesome!

On my way to Pennsylvania to say the final goodbye to my Mom-Mom, my grandmother. She hated flying.

Let’s just keep this one on file:

Why does everybody on the Falcons’ sideline look like a mobster from an 80s network TV miniseries?

Seriously, look at these guys:

Final round of painting! Hallway done! The Hubs has finally agreed to call in pros to do the living room. Thank heavens! I can’t deal with the cathedral ceilings in there. Color will be the same as the hallway- Silver Strand (Sherwin Williams).

Here we go again! Round two of painting. This time it’s the master bedroom going from dingy white to Palladin Blue (Benjamin Moore color).
